Trivia

Though the title refers to Bachelor's Walk, the real-life Dublin street, where the series is set, the apostrophe is omitted to add a different meaning to the words. This is in homage to James Joyce's novel Finnegans Wake, which does the same. See more »

Finally RTÉ cracks comedy
28 December 2002 | by See all my reviews

After many half-hearted efforts at comedy dramas, RTÉ have finally made a show that's both compelling viewing and quite funny.

What probably makes Bachelor's Walk such a great show is that we care about the characters - we feel as if we knew them all our lives. Whether it's Raymond, a man torn between two women; Michael, the huggable teddy bear with wandering eyes; or Barry, the likeable eejit.

The second series has just finished in Ireland, but no doubt there will be a third. Unless the great Keith McErlean (who plays Barry) gets a job in Hollywood - look out for this guy, he's that good!

Hilarious and fresh drama from RTÉ (at last)!
