Gritty little gem
16 August 2017 | by philipfoxeSee all my reviews

Just discovered this on BBC iplayer as I was desperate to find something to watch. I'm a long time out of Ireland so was prepared for some cringeful 'sure and begorrah' sentimental rubbish. Not so. Having watched the first two episodes I am looking forward to the rest. It starts off with two young women setting out in life.One works for an investment brokerage and the other is an art student. They are chronic boozers and don't take life too seriously. Drink leads them to make 'poor choices' and they are flying by the seat of their pants. The scenes in the club where they are drunk off their faces are so credible and they are all for having another drink.Also the inter office gossip and competition is farcical but has an edge to it. That's what makes it so watchable...we can see things will not always be so easy...
