Bad Sisters (2022): Sweet & Spicy Irish Black Comedy

Bad Sisters is an enjoyable sweet and spicy Irish black comedy. It is about the five Garvey sisters, who after the loss of their parents have stuck together through thick and thin, as they always end up supporting each other.

There is a close sibling bond among all the sisters, who look after the interests of each other, even under the most trying circumstances. It has been adapted from the original Belgian “Clan” (The Out Laws) series.

Bad Sisters series:- synopsis

This show is a delicious blend of both dark comedy and thriller and I agree. It narrates the complicated lives of the Garvey sisters. After the premature death of their parents, these five sisters are bound together with a promise to always protect each other, even during times of the worst crisis – including the murder of their family member. When their brother-in-law winds up dead, his life insurers set out to prove malicious intent—and set their sights on the sisters, all of whom had motives. The Garvey sisters have always looked out for each other.

Bad Sisters series: a brief review

In this series – Sharon Horgan, Anne-Marie Duff, Eva Birthistle, Sarah Greene and Eve Hewson played the fatally charming Garvey sisters with great style; also, Claes Bang enacted his repulsive villainous role perfectly. For a murder-mystery-thriller drama – this black comedy does have some insane plot twists. It is worth watching for the strong and tough love – these kinds of bonding among the five Irish sisters.

And the opening scene is a tragi-comedy. I believe that this sweet comedy and spicy thriller from the United Kingdom will certainly leave you smiling and wanting it more. We loved this series about the strong bonds of sisterhood. Yay for the sisterly unity. And three cheers to the sorority. We believe that – this show is like a good Irish Coffee – an intoxicating coffee drink that one must taste at least one time.

Season one of this series has only ten episodes, so it is a perfect murder show to binge-watch. After watching this series, I was reminded of this quote – “Having a sister is like having a best friend you can’t get rid of. You know whatever you do, they’ll still be there.” And in a strange way, I think – “The Garvey Sisters are really The Good Sisters, in a pragmatic way, perhaps.” Am I wrong, you tell us after watching it, okay, please?

A bunch of the lead actors have famous Irish family members. For example, Sharon Horgan is the sister of former Irish rugby player Shane Horgan and Eve Hewson is the daughter of famous U2's Bono.
