Yesterday evening saw the fifth season of Love Hate hit the airwaves. There was much buzz about the new season on facebook & twitter. There was much anticipation build up since the last seasons finale in November 2013. There had been a lot of build up online, and we expect record viewer numbers to be reported very soon. It’s a far cry from Glenroe on a Sunday night, that’s for sure !
The opening scene looked like something more out of a movie, rather than a drama production by RTE. This season sees Nidge back in action now with support of a high level Irish drug lord in Spain. The new characters were introduced well.
One of our favourite quotes from the episode was from Patrick the Traveller to Nidge
“I don’t want your money – take it back and use it to buy a headstone”.
We won’t ruin the episode for you, so we’ll leave it there for spoilers. A full review can be seen here on independent.ie.
One criticism we saw on twitter was the length of the ads.
