Did you watch it? If you didn’t, watch it now. It’s on the RTÉ Player, sure you’ve no excuse. Then come back here and tell us all what you thought.

For my part, I thought it was awful and brilliant in equal measure. The cons? There’s no storyline. Whatever storyline there is, is barely believable. Everyone’s a bit too good-looking. Everything’s a bit too easy (hello, internship after terrible interview; hello, boys falling down at your feet – this is Dublin, not Blind Date).

The pros? The soundtrack is awesome. Dublin looks great. It’s ridiculous escapism, and will do nicely for my Thursday evening reality TV fix.

To quote William Butler Yeats (I’m sure he’s turning in his grave), “a terrible beauty is born”. Your thoughts please.
