On that same vein I only noticed today that the boy who played Julian in the shield has been in jail for seven years for murdering his wife.

is it not called the Malice in the Palace in Ireland?

Either way, it's a really good doc.  Just watched it there last week. Most of the footage was not released at the time.

In the middle of watching This Way Up on Channel 4 from Aisling Bea. The first season was enjoyable but I think this one is better. Hard to beat good Irish Comedy! (Hope that doesn't spoilt it for you lads)

I tried watching Frank of Ireland by the Gleeson brothers and it was absolute guff.

a lot of fuss about nothing here really....saying as in the 1st 10 mins of ep.1  we know there is a death of some sort ala coffin being wheeled across the runway on to plane....and then you sit back to enjoy the story that unfolds ? nothing near a spoiler if you ask me  :-X
Now you've spoiled the mystery of first episode  :)
Once I got taken to task for referring to an event (albeit a notable event) which happened in episode 3 of 12  in a 17 year old documentary series.
The standard for some is,  whatever you say, say nothin'.

Frank of Ireland was brutal.

This Way Up wasn’t bad. Missed the last few episodes  though

Overall Frank of Ireland was middling but it gave me some of the biggest belly laughs of the year.

Frank of Ireland - few good parts but meh overall.

White Lotus ep1 - 7/10
White Lotus ep2 - 7.5/10. Shows potential.

It’s a slow burner for all 6 episodes. It’s a 6/10 for me at best.

Ep 2 higher because of that thing that happened so definitely a spoiler.

Me and the missus really enjoyed it. If you go in thinking it is an out and out comedy, you'll probably be disappointed but I didnt read much about it beforehand, apart from all the spoilers on here.

Sorry for the spoiler
