The Hardy Bucks lads are back with an aul bang on RTE2 at the moment with this new series that has definitely rekindled some of the magic of the early days. It's also enjoying the addition of two new cast members - the Hardy ladies, if you will, as Love Hate's Susan Loughnane and Fair City's Aoibheann McCaul join the Castletown lads. For any of you watching, you will know that Aoibheann plays Eddie's new girlfriend - sex addict Ciara - who is only mad for the ride so she is. So much so, that in her impatience waiting for Eddie to arrive home in this week's episode, she finds herself taking a shine to Buzz, who, bless him, isn't able for her whatsoever. Also tonight, Castletown is about to witness its first ever interracial gay wedding.
Runtime: 30 minutes
