    This 'ard written all over it. :D Hopefully it rises above snooker ball in a sock and showers level threats and is a bit clever.

    Bean and McGovern teamed up a few years back and gave us Broken. It was not an easy watch but bloody brilliant.

    I can't get stupid iPlayer


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,065 ✭✭✭ otnomart


    (I can't get iPlayer either)
    First episode was hard to watch but very very good.
    Amazing actors, my special mention goes to Aneurin Barnard.

    Finished all 3 - fantastic bit of TV.

    Very bleak in parts. I've never been in prison (!) but it felt very realistic.

    Excellent show, Stephen Graham is a great actor.

    Watched the 3 episodes this evening. Excellent performances from the two leads.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,111 ✭✭✭ JoeA3


    Watched all 3 too.
    A very dark and bleak watch at times. You definitely shouldn’t watch it if you’re not in the best of form. I don’t think it offered anything much new to the “prison movie” genre. A lot of the themes and characters you’ll have seen in countless prison dramas and it did lean on the odd prison cliche or two.
    However, overall, I really enjoyed it, mainly due to the 2 leads. Both great actors that elevate anything they’re in.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,547 ✭✭✭ pavb2


    Very watchable Could easily have gone to 6 episodes Stephen Graham’s story arc could have been stretched out a bit more. Brian McCardle aka Tommy Hunter in Line of Duty was very good


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,482 ✭✭✭ Hodors Appletart


    Watched the first one, it was relentlessly bleak, so much so that my wife commented she had to turn off Broken for the same reason a few years ago. No surprise it's from the same stable.

    ^ Two shows depicting realistic portrayals of prison and sexual abuse.. what were you expecting? :confused:

    I wasn't making a value judgement

    not sure why I'm catching heat here really


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,449 ✭✭✭✭ Basq


    There’s no heat being thrown.. just making a comment..

    I started it with my girlfriend on Sunday. We got about 10 minutes in and she wanted to watch something else.
    It definitely was bleak. I will keep watching myself, though. Sean and Stephen are always very watchable and it was really well acted.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,482 ✭✭✭ Hodors Appletart


    The supporting cast is oozing with talent too, the parents, the cellmate. MacNally's wife

    Is this available anywhere online apart from BBC iPlayer? Was away for the weekend and I don't think I have the series record on.

    This is one of the best tv shows I've seen in ages. Sean Bean, Stephen Graham, and Siobhan Finneran are 3 of my favourite actors. So many scenes made me cry: Mark helping Kav write the card, Brendan's admission to his victim's brother, how far gone Daniel went, the funeral, Eric on his way to prison, Mark and the poor fella on the bike's wife.

    I think overall I was so emotionally stirred by the displays of compassion to men who fùcked up in a big way. It reminded me a little of my mother. She had this capacity to speak to anyone regardless of rumour or allegation. People who you would wrongly assume were dodgy and even those who actually were.


    Every person has a dark side.What defines a person with good character is not a spotless life of constant kindness, smiles and even temperament - but a willingness to see in themselves their deepest and wildest selves, lust, greed, jealousy and envy. Their complete & authentic self.

    BBC2 will be repeating it starting Wednesday 30th June at 1.15am.

    (that's very late Tuesday night)

    Great bit of tv, some great acting and I think it’s the best thing I’ve watched in a long while
    Getflix saved the day for bbc iplayer


  • Registered Users Posts: 510 ✭✭✭ Cal4567


    Great performances and yes, very bleak. I find the storyline a bit far fetched. A prison officer who has a son in another prison, banged up and his inmates find this out and use it against him. Can't see that in real life.

    As with all these dramas where couples come in, one partner obviously has to be black to tick that box. So to is the prison governor. It just seems there has to be some non white characters or the complaining brigade will kick up a fuss. Just watching TV drama, that seems to be the standard these days. Again, not true to real life.

    No doubt some left wing liberal type will come along and call me out as a racist. Please don't bother. I won't be replying. Stick to the Tv show.

    Its far fetched because it’s a tv drama and not a factual documentary
