Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
We’re three episodes into ‘Love/Hate’ now and glad we stuck with it. Okay, so the build-ups to any action have slowed, and yes, it’s hard to picture genuine Dublin gangsters acting so softly as to release someone suspected of murdering a member of the mob, but the lighthearted approach to the gangland makes the pretty-boy thugs easier to warm to.
In that way, ‘Love/Hate’ is a bit like a soap, albeit a violent one. The characters draw you into their lives and, before you know it, you’re really rooting for Rosie to get out of her dead-end relationship with Stumpy and get back with Darren – despite the baby. The mystery of who killed Robbie is about to unravel too and we can guarantee the answers will have you on the brink of shouting at the TV in frustration.
But that’s what’s so great about it. No wonder this Irish crime drama was such a hit back home (three series have already been produced). Roll on next week’s finale! Danielle Goldstein.
