Amy Huberman. Instead of a specific Irish event we can all identify with (Italia ‘90) this second episode moves to a more generic event in a young person’s life: first day in secondary school.
Plus: the excitement of having a crush on a beautiful teacher.
As ever, it is impeccably executed by all and very funny.
The show successfully walks a very thin line. The lead character is easy to identify with, while at the same time he is an extreme character who is nothing like any of us. It shouldn’t work, really. But it does. David Rawle has charisma. And the gags are funny. 9/10
