Editorial: Good call on Love/Hate

FOR all RTE's faults (putting the new run of hit series Mad Men on at midnight being top of many people's list) RTE should get due praise for bringing back Love/Hate for a second series.

The show came under fire for 'glamorising gang crime' -- a criticism that could well be levelled at many a crime series from overseas -- but while Love/Hate may have fuelled debate, it also pulled in huge viewership and helped propel Irish star Robert Sheehan even further.
