A group of twenty-something neighbours living in a city apartment block in 21st century Dublin - a boomtown. It's a city of noodle bars, boy bands, Saturday night drug habits, extortion, corruption, fast living, self-consumed singletons. The Big Bow Wow's a danceclub. They go there to find solace and sex; discuss the day and get answers and let go. Written by
I didn't think that things could get much worse than the Cassidy's or upwardly mobile but this has managed to beat both of them. Bad acting. Bad dialogue. Bad plots. Bad editing. Bad directing. I actually can't think of one good thing to say about it. It is in fact possibly the worst thing that Ireland has produced so far. (programme wise. I think that Boyzone of Westlife would take the price of "worst produce in general"). I can only hope that when the autumn rolls around we do not see a second series of this dirge. Why can't they take a look at some of the English comedies that have exceeded expectation: Fawlty towers, absolutely fabulous, men behaving badly or even the new wave of great American TV like 24 or six feet under and do something similar but for gods sake with decent actors.
