The story of a group of people from Northern Ireland, trying to make their way in life in the face of sectarian and political polarization. Chucky is an overweight 30-year-old who has yet to find a purpose for his life, but when he comes up with a business idea, things begin to change in an almost miraculous manner for him. His friend Jake is an unusually sensitive repossession man, and his life too begins to change when he meets Aoirghe, a woman from the other side of the sectarian divide. Written by Anonymous

7 May 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

If at all possible, take time out to watch Eureka Street - that time will be well rewarded. Set in Belfast, Northern Ireland during a brief ceasefire in The Troubles, Eureka Street deals with the reality of everyday life in such a grim situation as civil conflict.

However, the show never descends to cliche - each episode is fresh, confronting, and brilliantly scripted and acted.

All I've said you can read in the other reviews - I fully agree with those other summations of this show - but I will add that Eureka Street is based on a book ("Eureka Street" by Robert McLiam Wilson) and adapted perfectly by Donna Franceschild (who also wrote Donovan Quick, a great telemovie). I highly recommend the book - it is a good read whether you have seen the tv adaptation or not.

I thought that the way in which Eureka Street the tv show captured the spirit of Eureka Street the book was inspiring. While both deliver a very real and disturbing picture of the horror of The Troubles, Eureka Street is rare in that it also gives a message of hope - one that begins in the small pieces of everyday life and which ends in a vision that is international.
