The fall of Haughey and the end of RTE’s miniseries ‘Charlie’.
The Insert Witty Name Show has been retooled! Welcome to Pilot Season, the show where we look at first and sometimes only episodes of TV shows! Following Heil Honey, I’m Home we take a look at the US remake of the British sitcom The IT Crowd – and Alan blindsides me with history questions I don’t know the answer to. The jerk!

“Charlie” is a miniseries currently airing on RTE One in Ireland. It stars Aidan Gillen (The Wire, Game Of Thrones) as Charles Haughey the controversial and charismatic former Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland
The month of January is pilot season here on The Insert Witty Name Show! We kick things off by looking the 1990 sitcom Heil, Honey I’m Home. This show was cancelled after one episode and has been called one of the most tasteless sit coms ever made. It’s about Hitler, Eva Braun and their Jewish neighbors… What could go wrong?
