    Watched all episodes (they are very short 20/25mins). loved every episode, funny and quite sad at times also. only seen a few derry girls episodes but i reckon he's better in this.

    Dylan Llewellyn looks very like Matthew Morrison from Glee

    I watched the first three episodes this evening. Loved it. Thought it was great. Will watch the remaining three tomorrow.

    Finished the 6 episodes.

    Absolutely excellent little series not getting half the attention it deserves.

    Second that, flew through it and no weak episodes from what I can remember.

    Has built up well to complete a 2nd and 3rd series hopefully.

    Big Boys season 2 starts on Channel 4 on Sunday 14th of January at 10pm with two new episodes

    Seemingly it is available already if you pay for channel 4 (the app so no ads and early access to some shows)...I am tempted but can wait for Sunday, just finished rewatch of season 1, even better than I remembered.

    I'll be honest - didn't find season 2 quite as good as season 1.. but still very good!

    But Jack Rooke is a brilliant writer nonetheless, and the cast are all absolutely superb - although Jon Pointing is particularly excellent throughout.

    End of the series was touching, but did feel a bit final unfortunately.

    Watched episode 1 of season 2, loved it very funny.

    I guess it will have a shelf life..maybe one more season...hopefully.

    Possible spoiler for real life story.

    I think Jack said the Danny character is at least is based on a friend who sadly commited suicide in real life.

    Loved season 2.

    Had me in stitches and tears.

    One more season please!

    Just finished both seasons. Liked it overall. I thought season 2 was a bit stronger probably because the characters were established by then. Last episode was terrible though. Shannon turned until a really annoying character. Less was more with her.
