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

Delightful, shocking and unmissable
5 October 1999 | by (York) – See all my reviews

One of the best TV dramas to come from Northern Ireland in some time. It centres on Chuckie Lurgan, an overweight entrepreneur who finds that everything he touches turns to gold. Woven into the story are the brutal and often hilarious adventures of his mates and their struggle to cope with life against the backdrop of the troubles. It never travels down the road marked cliche but thanks to some crisp dialogue, fine performances and nicely directed moments, ES creates the same sense of wonder and compulsive drama not seen since the likes of The Crow Road series in 1996. Not for the faint hearted - Chuckie's love interest confessing the dark history of her past while in a lighthouse will leave you slack of jaw, while his mother's own revelation after a party is nicely shocking. Great stuff with a finale that will leave you hooked - that closing scene with Ballykissangel's Dervla Kirwan is heartwarming.
