Big Bow Wow
BIG BOW WOW
This stylish, gritty and sexy contemporary relationship drama series centers on a group of 20-something friends dealing with all that life and love can throw at them. With widely differing backgrounds and ambitions, their lives collide at a pivotal time in 21st century Dublin, Ireland, where they share neighbouring flats in a trendy Quayside development. Like many young people sharing inner-city lives, they quickly become a kind of urban family, closely involved in each other's highs and lows, and gathering together at the end of a busy day to unwind at a danceclub, the Big Bow Wow. A diverse spectrum of characters populates Big Bow Wow, ranging from Leah (Melanie Clark Pullen - EastEnders), the freelance security consultant who's left behind a messy break-up and past she doesn't want to talk about, to successful builder Peter (Ben Palmer - The Abduction Club) whose role as parental stand-in after his mother's death has turned him into an evader of all other emotional hardships.
There's also Eric (Chris McQuarry - Mike Bassett: England Manager), who DJs at the Big Bow Wow, reinventing himself on his return to Ireland, coming out as gay and partying hard; brilliant student Jamilla (Sara James - In America) who's entering uncharted waters in her growing relationship with her professor, driven and materialistic Karen (Emily Nagle - The Last September) owner of an upmarket noodle bar, and computer whiz Frank (Michael Legge - Angela's Ashes) who chronically lacks confidence and social skills - but is irresistibly drawn to Leah. Sizzling, steamy, volatile and complex, Big Bow Wow is what 20-something life is all about!

The title comes from the name of a Dublin singles bar with lots of dancing, meeting and greeting, catching up, and going down.
The characters are more than just 'types' and all are relatively well-off and, pardon the expression, Yuppie-like: bankers, stock brokers, contractors, computer geeks, wannabe musicians, students. The least successful story-line follows the computer geek, played by the very cute Michael Legge (much sexier in Shameless). He has father issues, girl issues, and job issues, but plays it too mono-chromatically with an ultimately-tiresome lack of self-confidence. The most successful story involves a hip gay DJ (when called 'English fag' by his co-worker, he replies, "I hate being called that -- don't ever call me 'English'.") and his budding and potentially long-term relationship with a policeman. Real and sexy and heart-felt. The most frustrating involves a beautiful, fast-talking super-bitch who knows what she wants and doesn't care how she gets it. No shrinking violets here, except for the sadly wasted Michael Legge.
Nice views of a very modern and European-looking Dublin.
