Adapted from James Joyce's Ulysses, Bloom is the enthralling story of June 16th, 1904 and a gateway into the consiousness of its three main characters: Stephen Dedalus, Molly Bloom and the extraordinary Leopold Bloom.
"Any Time Now" is a a six part series about a group of friends who have known each other for years. One of them, Nora has lived in New York for a while but is brought back to Dublin for her father's funeral.
The characters are this programmes strong point as they are not as perfect as the Jane Doe's which are featured in nearly all programmes nowadays. They all heave major flaws and deal with them in funny and surprising ways.
It is a pity this programme is so short and at times it can be slightly predictable but it is enjoyable and a good laugh, and it's always interesting. At least it doesn't have girls with red hair and a pint of guinness in their hand while dancing simultaneously at cross-roads....... Recommended!
