It’s crazy enough to work, provided the Irish aren’t turned off by constant depictions of alcohol.
For instance, the Sam character, who was a retired baseball player in the American original, will now be a retired hurler, to which we will nod politely and smile, secretly praying that no one takes the time and effort to explain what hurling is.
The show will even get a new title in Teach Sean, with Sean being the aforementioned hurler. What exactly they teach him will be anyone’s guess. Love? Karate? Compassion for animals?
The show will air on Irish channel TG4. (Again, just smile and nod, and tell yourself that while this isn’t as awesome as the Pakistani version of Seinfeld, it’s still pretty cool.)
