Missus and I have watched most of it (two episodes to go)

Main protagonist is an odious pain in the proverbials, with an "I'm mad, me" attitude about everything. In fairness she's even called an absolute "cu*t" in it a couple of times which you could relate to. First couple of episodes are a hard watch and I nearly dozed off in one of them but we've given it a chance and we'll finish it out now we've come this far into it. So far I'd give it Meh out of 10
she's a bit of a looker though, i feel.
 
The main protagonist is that surly , I'm mad at the world type character that clearly doesn't want to be where she is. The acting isn't bad if you can get past the A- typical Irish depiction and quite a few well known actors making their appearance. The overall atmosphere throughout carries an element of dark comedy. But not overdone thankfully as can be the case with some of these programmes.

It took me a few episodes to decide I was a bit invested in seeing the series through and actually enjoyed it in the end. A Lot is revealed about the main character in the end and basically there is a bit of everything attached to the plot of the story. Clearly this production had a lot of finance behind it given some of the later scenes.

I liked the West Cork element and the Irish small town scenery was pretty nice.
7/10
