Frank of Ireland: Season 1 (2021)


Season 1
Frank of Ireland

Critics Consensus

Despite twice the Gleeson power, Frank of Ireland's initial incendiary chaos quickly burns itself out in a way that some viewers may find more irksome than entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Frank of Ireland: Season 1

  • Jul 14, 2022
    This is one of the funniest original pure joys to watch! And it goes by way too fast. I wish there had been more than six episodes for the first season. Shamus willing there will be a second season. I really don't understand the thinking of the rest of the people who viewed this giving it such bad reviews. Do you people not like to have joy in your life or are you just disappointed that this wasn't a superhero movie?

    Comedy genius. The Gleeson Brothers nailed it. I laughed so hard it made me cry. The entire cast and crew brought their A game. I hope to see much more. Do yourself a favor, and do not miss this. Perfection.

    This show is silly and sophomoric on purpose and makes no bones about it. It is laugh out loud funny.
  • Jan 10, 2022
    Entertaining despite it's stupidity.

    Even better than Bridget and Eamon. I think it is as good as Father Ted. Heresy, I know. If you like Irish comedy you will love it. If you don't, then you probably won't get it. Personally, I have watched the whole series many times. I need fresh Frank!

    I absolutely love Frank of Ireland, and as we all know, if the self proclaimed professional critics hate it, then it must be good. I've watched all 6 episodes probably a dozen times, and each time I laugh at something I didn't catch the last time. Yhe Gleeson bros are a comedic delight, and Sarah Greene is a perfect fit that balances out the slapstick goofiness. If you hate laughing and take yourself way too seriously, then don't watch this show. I'm counting on season 2! (Looking at you channel 4 and Amazon Video)

    I've read the other reviews, and while I do agree that the tension and tropes are over-the-top and somewhat repetitive, I think the performances and very solde writing make up for it. I watched the entire series twice, and I'd encourage others to do the same. I caught more of the wit and subtle energy on the second viewing.

    What a great find. This quirky, funny limited series is worth watching. A 33 year old loser moves back with his feisty mom. He pines for his ex-girlfriend while defining his relationship with his best friend. The show has very Ricky Gervais feel with an Irish twist. This one is really endearing at moments. Laugh out loud at others. Check it out.

    I laughed hysterically.

    Great writing with plenty of laugh out loud moments. Well worth a watch
