The Dark Side of Dublin
19 October 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I rarely write reviews but I felt this show deserved one. I've watched many shows over the years from a range of different countries and it's intriguing to see how gangland wars and drugs are portrayed in each one.

When Love/Hate was aired first here in Ireland being quite I honest I fobbed it off mainly due to the fact that Ireland does not produce top quality TV and one of the main reasons would be budget. I put this show off for a couple of years until this year and I wanted to binge- watch the show like I do with some shows I find hoping to find a hidden gem. Being from Ireland its not hidden how and ever it IS a total gem. I'm proud to say Ireland has produced one of the greatest crime dramas ever.

The show is based upon Dublin's criminal underworld whereby it depicts drug addiction, squalor and violence of organised crime that has grown post Celtic tiger era in Ireland.

Darren Treacy (Robert Sheehan) returns to Dublin from Spain, spending time there while trying to avoid the Garda in Ireland for gun possession. Darren's brother Robbie is released from Cloverhill prison. While waiting to be collected, Robbie is shot outside a newsagents in a drive by shooting. Catastrophic events ignite tension among the drug gang, and family, friends and the community must live with the consequences.

The above is a synopsis of the first episode and immediately portrays how raw the show is.

Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (nidge) is amazing throughout. He is one of the most slimiest characters ever.

Watch it. I promise you, you won't be disappointed.
