Possibly the worst Irish accent in TV/film history
19 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

While there is no such thing as a bad Moonlighting episode (until the pregnancy of course), this episode has a serious problem.

It features an Irish character, but it seems no one involved in the production has ever heard an Irish person speak. The actress at times sounds like a Jamaican, like Dick Van Dyke's chimney sweep, a member of Abba and even Scarlett O'Hara, sometimes in different parts of the same sentence. It has to be heard to be believed.

All the other ingredients of a good episode are in place, but this one character and her extraordinary nomadic accent dominate the proceedings, making it almost impossible to stay in the story. Every time she speaks, you remember you're watching a TV show made by all- too-fallible human beings.

Mild spoiler: the storyline involves a woman who believes she is a leprechaun. She sings songs that go "A-diddly-di-a-doodle-dee-a-diddly-doodle-di." And the incidental music is "Irish", in the way that an Irish-themed pub or the Riverdance phenomenon is Irish. For some reason they forget to mention the potato famine, but it's as if they wanted to irritate anyone Irish who might be watching. Perhaps this explains why they couldn't get an actual Irish actress.

And yet I have to give it 9 stars - it's Moonlighting!
