The Young Offenders - Series One
The Young Offenders follows the coming of age adventures of lovable rogues Conor & Jock (Alex Murphy and Chris Walley, reprising their roles from the hit Irish feature film) as they navigate their awkward teenage years, hatching plans and adventures to help distract from their tough home lives and their inability to stay out of trouble at school. Conor's long suffering mother Mairead (Hilary Rose) tries to keep both her son and his best friend on the straight and narrow, with varying degrees of success.
The comedy series, created by Peter Foott, expands on characters already seen in the film as we watch the lads encountering love, loss, peer pressure, and morality, with each episode set in Cork, intertwining the tales with the city and characters the producers want to celebrate. The Young Offenders is foremost a comedy and is packed with laughter, but it's also tender with lots of heart.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
