Brotherly Love

Series 1 - Episode 12 Brotherly Love

Saturday 3:55am - 4:40am RTÉ2


The toshy, sentimental side of Lethal Weapon comes to the fore tonight. First, there’s square cop Murtaugh (the cornily reliable Damon Wayans), whose heart problems appear to be making a comeback, meaning he needs to steer clear of excitement – shootouts, car chases, that sort of thing.

Then there’s his lawyer wife Trish, who does a nice line in smiling charm that has a serrated edge of don’t-cross-me. But the cops do cross her, when they bring in one of her protégés.

Then there’s Riggs (Clayne Crawford), the beating heart of the series: a death-wish shambles who can’t get over the loss of his wife. What if he somehow lost his wedding ring?


Murtaugh experiences some frightening chest pains after he and Riggs become embroiled in a notorious car theft ring. His doctor has told him he needs to keep his stress levels under control and if the physical discomfort coupled with Riggs' driving aren't enough of a trigger, the fact that the lead defence attorney on the case is none other than the intimidating Trish Murtaugh threatens to push him over the edge. Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford star in this fast-paced series, based on the hit, big-screen movie.
