Comedy drama Can’t Cope Won’t Cope is one of the most highly anticipated dramas of RTÉ’s new season.
The the six part series premiered on Irish televisions this week and so far has received mixed reviews.
The show stars Seána Kerslake and Nika McGuigan as two Cork girls in their twenties who move to Dublin and struck with the challenges of paying rent and water charges. You might recognise Seána Kerslake as playing the lead role in new Irish comedy A Date for Mad Mary. This girl is definitely one to look out for! Ireland’s Queen of Puns, Amy Huberman also plays a role.
Since the show has hit our screens the viewers have taken to twitter to have their say. There has been the odd negative tweet where people just were not feeling it.
Can't cope won't cope with the use of 'like' here! #cantcopewontcope

But you can’t please everyone!
Overall the show received some brilliant reviews. Girls in there 20’s especially seemed to love the show as it is so relatable and brings flashbacks of their last night out in Coppers.
I've never identified with a character, real or fictional, as much as I do with hangover Aisling in work #cantcopewontcope

This show is written (Stefanie Preissner), directed (Cathy Brady) and produced (Ailish McElmeel) by women along with a mostly female cast. This is a huge step forward for Irish women in the film and television industry.
We give this show a Grintage thumbs up and recommend you watch up on RTE Player ASAP!
