With a 4pm curfew in place today, Ireland is officially on lock down. As the initial excitement begins to subside and concerns of boredom go on the rise, never fear! RTE Player has got you covered with a host of ‘must watch’ snow day content!
Be a fly on the wall as potential couples meet for the first time in First Dates Ireland, laugh those woolly socks off (then put them back on again) at the first four episodes of the terrible twosome, Conor and Jock, in The Young Offenders. Continue the giggle fest with The Big Bang Theory and brand new Will & Grace and if you begin to get tired of looking at your four walls, get inspired with brand new episodes, clips and extras from Room to Improve and Home of the Year! Still not satisfied? Catch up with Dancing With the Stars and immerse yourself in US dramas such as The Handmaids Tale, Homeland, Grey’s Anatomy, Blue Bloods and How to Get Away with Murder.
The aptly named Snowfall is a US crime drama set in 1983 Los Angeles as the first crack epidemic begins to take hold on the culture of the city. The series follows the stories of several characters whose lives are doomed to intersect including 19-year-old drug dealer, Franklin Saint; Mexican luchador, Gustavo ‘el Oso’ Zapata; CIA operative, Teddy McDonald and a Mexican crime boss’ niece, Lucia Villanueva.
American comedy-drama, Limitless, follows 28 year old struggling musician, Brain Finch, as he discovers the power of a mysterious nootropic drug that unlocks the full potential of the human brain and gives the user enhanced mental faculties. For twelve hours after taking the pill, he becomes the smartest person in the world, able to perfectly recall every detail of his life and capable of prodigious leaps of intuition and reasoning but with serious potential consequences. Follow Brian as he uses his abilities to help the FBI whilst also trying to stay alive.
Also featuring in RTE Players Snow Day Collection is School Life, an observational documentary following a year in the lives of two inspirational teachers in the only primary-age boarding school in Ireland, Headfort, a school not unlike Hogwarts with its 18th century buildings, secret doors and magical woodlands. Learn about John and Amanda Leydens extraordinary 46-year career!
