Remarkable to be nominated for your first leading role (?) when you look at the other nominees - Hugh Jackman, Jeremy Irons, Mark Ruffalo and Jeremy Pope (Tony nominee and Broadway star).

Great to see a normal lad doing well. Pun actually wasn't intended.. but I didn't get the hype of the show. It was nothing special imo

Whilst the program would still get nominated for awards.
So, I'll stick to my opinion.
Wasn't there a Love Island series earlier in the year that flopped?

I also think they appeal to very different audiences.

RTE have gone way overboard on plugging this show at every opportunity.

For a couple of weeks there seemed to be a new non story about the cast on a daily or near daily basis.

Yep and completely unnecessary.

It turned off huge audiences

Total overkill

RTE always do that with a new show. Just look at how they relentlessly promoted Love/Hate.

I'm sick of seeing his face to be quite frank. I didn't even watch NP but at this rate I feel like I'm living a portion of my life as his.

Danial Day Lewis never got this much media attention and I'm sorry but from the clips I've seen I don't see any Oscar nominations coming any times soon.

He's no Brad Pitt either, I mean he might get a a degree of attention in Coppers but in the grand scheme of things - slightly above average.

Fair play to him for his 'making it' an all, but jezz, we'll be reading how often he goes to the bathroom per day if this level of media attention doesn't abate.

It seems to divide opinion.

I thought in parts it was brilliant. More like a novel in how it put you in the shoes of the characters. The episode in the Italian villa could have been a movie in itself.

There were some glowing unprompted positive reviews in the UK Sunday Times readers section. Not just teenagers. People who said it reminded them of being an undergrad in the early 60s.

I dont think it was shallow at all.
It looked like that on the surface with the two attractive leads getting their kit off but there were depths of emotion there most TV shows dont even know exist.
