Cat Hogan returns to West Meath upon her mother's sudden death - she has an accident at home and died (or was it an accident?). Blood is about old secrets, older betrayals, mind games and the lies family tell each other.
Taken Down is a crime drama series set in Dublin. The first series investigates the violent death of a young Nigerian migrant found abandoned close to a Direct Provision Centre, where refugees await the hope of asylum. The investigation brings us into a twilight world of the new Ireland where slum landlords and criminals prey on the vulnerable.
The women leads are all brilliant and awesome and the men are all idiots. It's where we are in 2018 when it comes to TV dramas and this is no exception.
This latest police procedural has the pace of a very tired tortoise. Every line of dialogue is exposition of some kind and the lifeless delivery means there is zero development of characters.
A recent immigrant is found dead at a bus stop. We know nothing about her yet we are supposed to be interested in finding out who bumped her off. This only works well if we are rooting for the brave members of law enforcement. As this crew are as interesting as black socks the drama never gets going.
If you are out of sleeping tablets this will act as a quick fix till you can get down to the chemists.
