    Well Holy Be to God!

    Do you think this would be a good idea? Do you want Biddy, Miley, Teasey, Dinny, Dick, Mary etc. in your life again. I'd watch it "ironically", like all soaps are best watched.

    My loins are ready.

  • Better than half the sh!te on the box these days.

    First they came for the socialists...





  • That’s all I need. The fear from my childhood Sunday nights revisited. Even the starting credits give me chills.




  • As long as the bring back Murphy's Micro Quiz-M, all will be forgiven.




  • What about the classic Late Late with Gaybo, Nell McCafferty, a random priest and the blazing row of the week? Actually could we just replace the current LLS with that? How much money would that save?




  • Oh sweet Jesus no please. The acting was absolutely dire. Bracken was streets ahead of it.

    Classic Glenroe - as in they are just going to reshow the whole of the old Glenroe? :confused:




  • Classic Glenroe - as in they are just going to reshow the whole of the old Glenroe? :confused:

    I'd imagine that'd be very cheap for them to do.

    I'd imagine that'd be very cheap for them to do. They're a joke.




  • Nothing signalled the spiritual death of the weekend quite like the end credits for Glenroe.

  • Wesley Burrowes and half the cast are dead so they might save some money there.




  • Quicksilver and the dizzy heights of the 50p question. I'll have to take something for the tension just thinking about it!

    Not as cheap as you might think.

    Any surviving actors would be entitled to repeat fees and another payment if it goes on the online player.




  • Dick Moran was a right flash boy.




  • Some of us have been suggesting this for years, even on this website. On the off-chance that D4bes is reading boards, maybe outrageous, uncompetitive RTÉ salaries will be next for the cut.

    In reality, obviously this is a pretty obvious, guaranteed revenue-raiser for RTE. It's only now that they're down huge amount of revenue from online competition that they're showing much interest in public demand.




  • Biddy faked her death!

  • Will Blackie be upgraded to a Transit ?




  • Is this coming to Netflix?




  • The way RTE are going Tiny Pop tv is better viewing.




  • I used to be subjected to this shite every Sunday even though no one in the house liked it. My father would watch fucking Bullseye then switch over to RTE One at about 8.30 to be ready for the 9.00 news. I think he preferred being miserable to letting someone else watch something.

    Bracken was excellent, with a nice dose of controversy thrown in, seems the Church had a hand in it not being renewed.

    I think some of the earlier tapes are missing, or were taped over. Either way, expect a huge amount of 'RTE Gold' over the next few years to be used as prime time filler in an attempt to cut costs.

    Doubtful as contracts tended to cover that. It's RTE's IP.

    This was standard practice on both the BBC and RTE for a long time, as film was expensive. A lot of early Dr Who episodes got wiped for example.

    A show with a stereotyped view of the travelling community? Em, no thanks.

    Repeats of the Gaybo Late Late Show instead of the current one is something I’ve hoped for before.

    It is not only 3000% more entertaining but will actually be more relevant than the dross Tubridy brings on. How in the name of Heaven that wan last week is a “feminist icon” is beyond me.




  • They'll be showing 'classic RTE News' next...

    They really are f**ked beyond repair now.




  • Is this coming to Netflix?

    No because Netflix actually do good TV

    Why does RTE need to announce the fact that its showing repeats of a show nobody cares about? dont they do this all the time anyway




  • I'd be glued to it. Emmerdale (Farm) went to shite as soon as it stopped being about the Sugdens farming in the Dales.

    My dad wasn't ever miserable but my mam would want to watch the soaps so we'd watch them.

    He'd be able to tell you what was going to happen because he'd have read about it in the paper but nearly always at the end of every episode he'd say 'what a load of shyte' :D
