Memorial photographer Brock Blennerhasset is renowned for his skill at photographing the recently deceased in Victorian Ireland. When a series of murders threatens to sully Brock's reputation, a detective drags him into an investigation of Dublin's criminal underbelly.
I love this show!! I find the show to be riveting and I have thoroughly enjoyed devouring each episode. While certainly macabre, it is done is such a way that it nearly "normalizes" what is being watched. The characters are rich and a pleasure to watch unfold. There are a substantial amount of "F bombs," but anyone who knows much about Irish culture realizes that colorful language is just par for the course and not viewed in the same manner as maybe an American household would view it. The humor is high level, dark and dry. I truly appreciate the sublty of it. I cannot wait to see what happens next.
