Everyone’s talking about… The Young Offenders

Last night brought the first season of the uber-successful series to an end, and it’s fair to say there will be a Young Offenders-shaped hole in all our hearts for the foreseeable future.

Ending with what Twitter believes to be the funniest episode of the entire series, Conor and Jock turned a simple trip to the cinema into a hostage situation.

And everybody was here for it.

Roll on season 2!
