Episode 2: Frank of Ireland

Summary

Frank's mother Mary is bed-bound for the day, so it falls to him - and therefore Doofus - to complete her list of chores and nurse her back to health. The pair set about their tasks with enthusiasm, stupidly giving Mary sleeping pills so that they can finish their tasks in peace. However, when they return home after a stressful trip to the laundrette, they discover that Mary has escaped. Comedy, with Brian Gleeson, Domhnall Gleeson, Pom Boyd, Sarah Greene and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor.

Review

This endearing ramble of a sitcom is full of great touches. Spending time with self-absorbed loser Frank (Brian Gleeson) is good value because we know the next scene will always deliver another comic humiliation, though Frank will be too proud to notice. 

This week he has to look after his injured mother, who gives him a list of household tasks, but Frank’s idea of food shopping is five dozen eggs, and he takes all the laundry to be dry cleaned – for some reason buying a dog (which he names Frank) along the way. The mood of surreal shambles may remind you of other shows about hapless berks, like Mister Winner and Man Down, but that’s good company to keep.
