This show had lots of promise. Don't trust the haters!!!
The above comments are not an accurate appraisal of the show. The Roaring 20s was well written and well acted by a cast made up of some fantastic and exciting new talent. Some elements of the show did indeed fail - but all comedy pilots are rough around the edges - hence them being 'pilots'.
The Roaring 20s would have evolved and improved had it been given a full season. Both shows are now available on you tube and should be watched with an open mind. Critics in Ireland constantly argue that new talent is never given a chance by the national broadcaster --- the Roaring 20s may not be perfect but it was written, directed and acted by 100% new talent and proves once more that it's easy being a critic - and its exceptionally hard to be creatively successful.
