Genius of a series! for the past few years they played the whole darn thing again late night on More4, we’re now at the final series (for my 3rd time). Never been a show like as far as viewer involvement and emotion. I can’t watch the ‘zoe kidnap’ scene without white knuckles and teary eye.

Nice presby sermon stocki :) open with a bit of popular culture then pivot to ‘ that’s a bit like when Jesus said’. just joshing. I do think it’s a bit ‘easy’ though to say, Jesus has blessed NI with peace, I mean anyone could say that. 30+ years of death and mayhem (none of which is god/Jesus/Allah/Kristina’s fault of course!) then eventually people grind out a hard bitten compromise… and faith people give a rye smile and say ‘you see, god/Jesus/ Kristina /whoever is great isn’t he? let’s worship’. A bit easy.

Gibby, You have more faith than me! If you believe we got here by our love for each other and tolerance you have a faith I am envious of... It was in spite of Christianty and Christianity alomost blew it and still might but it was not love your neighbour Northern Irish hippy love that brought us to the Chuckle Brothers! At least I lack the faith to believe it!

'If you believe we got here by our love for each other and tolerance you have a faith I am envious of.'

I believe no such thing.
(extra marks for anyone who knows the audience to which Big Ian famously used this pay off line :) )
Not sure I've ever read or watched any review/interviews of 'the settlement' that claimed it as anything other than weary pragmatism on all sides. Hippy love and tolerance? never, never, never! (2 points up for grabs)

You are a good man!
