While the concept behind the series is an interesting one, the stories and writing is just not that good. The plots are hard to follow, and at times the story moves from A to C without ever going to B. This leaves the viewer confused. I think a better job could have been done with continuity and better editing. In some of the episodes, the scenes seem to be inserted in a random order as if no story-board was used to show plot development. The acting is all very good, and the scenery of the west coast of Ireland, stunning. It is a series set in contemporary Ireland, and so has all the integral pieces of modern culture e.g. drug use, deviant behavior, corruption. It does show that it's not all idyllic in this beautiful setting.
