So what is RTE’s 4-part series ‘Prosperity’ for exactly? They are well produced and dramatic stories in and of themselves but when you insist on showing spot ads for ‘Dan and Becs’ in the break, doesn’t it take from the impact it is attempting to have?
Shocking tales of unspoken pain, psychological and physical woe passed from generation to generation, stress levels going unchecked and reinforced. Georgie’s story last night was really very good and it portrayed his own pain following the collapse of the relationship with his wife.
Collective middle and upper class sigh of desperation begins: “It’s terrible isn’t it? If only we could do something about it….ah well back to worrying about how much my country pile is worth.” Sorry Littlesapling but is it just me?
