Excellent Drama with international standing of quality
2 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Season 4 . 2012

Being from Ireland I generally "Hate" Irish drama/ comedy/ thriller/ pretty much anything from my home country, as it generally portrays a kitschy, 80's cheap view of the country and our people. "very embarrassing" "cringe worthy TV"

That all said Love/Hate is a true gem of modern Irish film and production. An excellent series with the draw to have you sit in on a Sunday night.

Modern, Hard hitting, Well scripted, strongly acted and an overall "must watch"
