    Yes, I saw the film on Netflix a while ago and recently spotted the TV series on iplayer. I've enjoyed all of it although I found the Cork accent a little tricky to begin with.

    The film was brilliant, the TV show is a little bit more hit-and-miss, but great all the same. As kittyP said, quite emotional at times as well, excellent portrayal of friendship, growing up and what are essentially a pair of hapless berks just trying to get by.

    It occurred to me that I've never heard a Cork accent before - that was a surprise!

    Loads of Cork people were indentured labourers on the Jamaican plantations before or during the early slavery days. All that Ting is Irish!

    I'm up to episode 4 now, which I think is the best so far (the one where they buy a new fridge). Like others, it took me about half an episode to adapt to the accents, but once you do it's got some lovely touches.
