I admit I'm reviewing this show only because the previous two reviewers gave the show such bad reviews. I didn't watch every episode but the ones I saw were a bit of a mixed bag.
With a multi-character show with mostly very short sketches it is inevitable that you will get some sketches that are just not funny. This is certainly the case here with some repeated characters such as the South African mother not very funny.
However there were also some very funny ideas and characters. Perhaps they makers were under pressure to make a certain number of episodes and some items that might have been left out were kept in for this reason. Anyway it was a refreshing change to see some new faces on RTE, rather than the usual suspects.
Not bad for a first series. Hopefully the powers that be will bring them back for another series that might be even better.
