    The whole series is available on the RTE Player after tonights show, not sure if that's a good or bad sign.

    Shot around Bray by the looks of it. Is it a bit cringe?

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,039 ✭✭✭mr_edge_to_you

    The champagne bottles with the 2 corks are lethal!

    Picking up a bit now, thought the whole episode was going to be cooking and driving the ankle biters around the place there for a while.

    It's terrible. Absolutely terrible.

    Barry Ward looks like Aidan Gillen

  • Registered Users Posts: 16,381 ✭✭✭✭Galwayguy35

    Seems to have a bit of OCD scrubbing and cleaning all the time.

    Keeping the gloves on for sexy time was a bit weird though.

    Doubt it will be much good but will see what the next episode is like.

    Yes, it is all there now, might be best for anyone watching it on the player and posting here to use spoiler tags, I'm sure some might watch it over the next five Sundays.

    I distinctly remember the continuity announcer saying the same in the lead-up to the start of KIN season 2 but it never materialised. It initially caused a bit of confusion in the KIN thread.

    Why would RTE make the other 5 episodes of Clean Sweep available straight away?

    1. They don't think it's good enough to hold high numbers of viewers over the next five weeks?
    2. Is it airing anywhere else ahead of RTE?

    It's a little all over the place, hard to know what in the jaysus is going on, I will watch first 3 episodes and re-evaluate from there. In the safety security box there was a pre 2007 issued non biometric USA passport, what would that be needed for, perhaps an afternoon on Antiques Roadshow to sell it?

  • Registered Users Posts: 259 ✭✭Munstergirl854

    Oh my god it was terrible...very slapstick.

    The scene where shes leaving the hotel like Liam Gallagher and puking over the steps ...theres noway the nurse would have recognised her or stopped for small talk in that situation.

    The spaghetti bolognese was on so long it was making me hungry.

    I'll be totally honest I dont get the fascination with Charlene McKenna anyway.Bad sign to release all episodes on the player as they dont think it will hold high viewers.

    That little magician fella Aidan must have ran out of reality talent shows and now is acting playing the sick smart young son

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,822 ✭✭✭Cork Lass

    I watched the first episode last night and wasn't very impressed at all. Might try one more episode just to see but can't see myself watching the whole lot. Disappointing as the trailers made it look good.

    The 'dark glasses and hat' disguise was like something out of the Inbetweeners

  • Registered Users Posts: 30,331 ✭✭✭✭freshpopcorn

    I'm on episode two.

  • Registered Users Posts: 85,486 ✭✭✭✭JP Liz V1

    Does Shelley own all the kids even the oldest fella?

    Brutal first episode. Dreadful acting and worse dialogue. Can’t see how anyone gave this a green light.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,950 ✭✭✭Radio5

    There was one scene of car turning into a driveway which looked to be filmed in the leafy suburb of Mount Merrion.

    Have only seen first episode and it's not great. Her disguise was laughable and not very good seeing as how the nurse recognised her. Also the 'stressed woman glugging red wine while cooking and juggling family responsibilities and harbouring a Dark Secret ' trope is well overdone at this stage.

    I watched it all finished last night and wondered where did the 5 hours of my life go to never come back lol

    I am trying to find infor on which true crime is this based on so to look what actually happened as the last episode ending so badly imho. was painful to watch at times how slow and meaningless it was.

    anyone knows which crime was this based on? if any? i wonder if it is just a fiction ''inspired by'' true crime that is mixture of stuff
