SO, WHICH ARE YOU – #TeamKiely or #TeamHennessy?

Tonight marked the debut of TV3′s new soap and potential rival to RTÉ’s Fair City, Red Rock.

It centres on a busy Garda station in the fictional Dublin suburb of Red Rock, where two families, the Kielys and the Hennessys, are at war.

We’ve had a look at the action-packed first episode here, but what did Twitter think?

The overall reaction was positive, with loads of viewers praising the high production values, top notch acting and juicy plot:

Not everyone was completely taken in, of course.

But one thing almost everyone agreed on was that the harmonica-driven theme tune/sting HAS to go. Eastenders’ iconic “dum-dum-dum-dum-dumdumdumdum” it ain’t.

Catch the next episode tomorrow at 8.30pm on TV3.
