I know that they’re often cheesy, and stereotypical and mostly seem to revolve around “Irish Pubs” that wouldn’t know their Guinness from their Jameson’s – but I can’t help loving St. Patrick’s Day specials on television.
I always find watching the drama/comedy/capers unfold amongst the revelry of St. Patrick’s Day strangely comforting, and love seeing all the Irish paraphernalia donned by the characters to mark the occasion. As far as holiday specials go, Christmas always seems to follow a certain plotline, but because St. Paddy’s is such a fun and random holiday in the first place – anything can happen!
I’ve listed some of my favourite St. Patrick’s Day episodes below, I think I might have a themed binge session in the lead up to the day of our patron saint. Seeing as most of my social activities seem to involve Netflix these days anyway…
