    Impressive Cast

    ACM and Screen Ireland, RTÉ don't really invest in any drama, I think Smother is their biggest own budget and Season 2 could easily be bankrolled by BBC/UKTV

    Woah.. so that's like Charlie Cox (Daredevil!!) alongside Aidan Gillen and Ciarán Hinds!

    but the trailer doesn't feel strong.. so I checked the Director/Writer combo.. seems to be a team from TV show Red Rock.

    Is it after getting any good? I don't remember seeing/hearing strong reviews about it



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,641 ✭✭✭✭ Elmo


    It hasn't started yet, not sure if critics have seen previews.

    Ah well.. I was kinda asking about Red Rock.



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,641 ✭✭✭✭ Elmo


    Red Rock was much more of a Soap Opera than a Drama. It was better than most soap operas, towards the end it was desperate to become more edgy. It was push around the schedules too much and Virgin Media / TV3 really just wanted to drop it in the end.

    Minor quibble but I've never heard anyone in this country use the word kin to describe family.

    Maybe Kin is a reference to Kinahan?

    I'm still very excited for this but it's utterly moronic to let it air a few days earlier in the US than here. There'll be no communal Sunday night vibe as there was with Love/Hate the other 2010s dramas if they do it like this, the vast majority of the target audience will pirate it from the US the day after it airs over there.

    Is it remotely possible they'd debut it the Sunday before, ten days from now on Sunday 5th September without any fanfare to that effect? It feels like if they haven't announced it already, it'll be the week after which will also be three days after the US air date.

    I've often heard it, might be a regional thing but particularly common in Limerick and Clare.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,961 ✭✭✭ Gadgetman496


    I'm sure everyone is familiar with "Next of Kin" (a person's closest living relative or relatives.)

    I'm in!

    This based on the kinahan cartel family?

    My understanding is that it is based on the Hutch/Kinahan feud over the last 5 years

    Not sure how I feel about something which appears to be ripped so closely from the current headlines. I’ll probably watch, but I can’t help wondering could they not come up with an original concept for themselves ?



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,530 ✭✭✭ Delta2113


    The RTE D.O.G. is a massive put off but I will watch this show one way or another. It's got some good reviews for the first few episodes reviewers have seen.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,961 ✭✭✭ Gadgetman496


    RTE bosses have confirmed the release date for the broadcaster's new highly anticipated crime drama "Kin".

    The show will be coming to the nation's televisions on Sunday, September 12th, and bosses are hoping the show will match the success of Love/Hate and run for several series.

    The 'American' audience should give us a good feel for how good/bad it is after it's shown there this Thursday. I'm looking forward to it, just a pity RTE will be a few days behind.

    Looking forward to this, Love/Hate as we all know was an excellent series and be interesting to see how this will distance itself from it

    The airing in the US been earlier is a bit of headache considering (cough cough) how advanced the internet is. Was it Normal People that was aired in the states before here ?



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,530 ✭✭✭ Delta2113


    I wouldn't go by an American audience to be honest. Google reviews and the first few episodes get a good review.

    Aidan Gillen being cast in this has me bothered, the fact he plays his part the same in everything he does is one thing but him being in a not dissimilar show like love/hate is another.

    I see he's only credited for one episode

    so that's something.

    This has been screened for some TV Critics and it has been well received!

    Looks like this could be a winner...




  • Registered Users Posts: 72,101 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn


    I assume with AMC+ being a streaming service that Kin will be avilable to viewers in the US from first light US time on Thursday rather than being released that evening to them?



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,530 ✭✭✭ Delta2113


    8AM First episode went up and it's every Thursday for new episode.
