Thought it was ok and would give it a go to start with but think each episode so far has been poorer then the previous one. Last night's one however want just poor, it wasn't even original. Piss in the church straight from Peep Show, crying Virgin Mary from Only Fools, your one on the energy drinks for an exam from the Inbetweeners etc

Did she shit herself? I must have missed that bit.


I thought it was quite good, granted it's not Fr Ted or some of the other comedies people are comparing it to, but watchable all the same.

Some lads with large pokers up their holes on here.

Havent watched last nights yet, but thought the first two where quite funny.

That Erin one can be rather annoying at times though

Anyone that thinks this is funny must have something wrong with them. Excruciating to watch, the peurile humour, plot and acting skills were embarassing, a very poor children's TV programme with lots of swearing.

Exaggerate much? There is TV on 7 days a week, people enjoy watching different stuff. This is perfectly watchable, if not perhaps one of the all time greats.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

She didn't, but that's not the point. I just don't think it's that original or funny. No poker up my hole either.

The principal nun is the best character, both written and acted, in the show by far for me.

It's okay, just but fills a half hour later at night as a wind down. Agree about the nun.
However, originality on TV ended in 1980 something. Everything is a rehash or rip off of something else now.

Just watched this week's episode. It's not bad, passes half an hour painlessly & funny in parts.

Saw Kevin McAleer a couple of years apart and he didn’t change his act in the slightest. Yes I understand he has the same droll way if going on but it was literally the same set.

In fairness to him it worked perfectly for Derry girls but he needs to change it up to stay relevant. In today’s game you need a new set every year at least to stay relevant!!

Kevin's latest show, 'Saying Yes to Yes' is hilarious and totally up to do date on new age philosophies and all that. A genius had the audience in Strule House in Omagh in tears of laughter. So he hasn't been left behind at all...  https://www.clifdenartsfestival.ie/event/comedy/
