It has all the hallmarks of Frontline. Pat with a panel and takes the roving mike into the audience to speak to someone with experience of a problem.
All our old cliches made popular in similar shows make a welcome return "I didn't interrupt you so please don't interrupt me" "Make the rich pay more" "The squeezed middle cannot shoulder any more cuts".

Niall Collins, Pearse Doherty Damien English and Colm McCarthy off load their wisdom on the unsuspecting viewers while make up work overtime hiding Pat's wrinkles from the camera.

Afterwards Pat uses his bus pass to get home passing Vincent Browne in the corridor who has just used his to get into Ballymount.

I knew it looked similar, couldn't remember that programme was called Frontline. I like Pat, he knows his stuff. What is yer one Colette on there for? Seems a nice decent sort.but is it for gender quota that she is on it.

Watched it till Late Debate came on at 10. Nothing new, quite boring I thought. There's room for a current affairs show like Question Time or Questions & Answers but this is another current affairs/tabloid á la Claire Byrne, pity.

In fairness to him, he made good points but it was sadly laughed away at the time because the cowardly audience didn't want to be seen as stepping out of line.

His first question to Pearse Doherty: about property taxes in the six counties, was exactly the same first question he asked Pearse Doherty on the frontline about five years ago.

A lot of pre offended feminists moaning about 4 men on panel. Ffs I assume the parties all sent a rep and are there any female Economists ????

Like last time, all a bit dull when the focus is Pat kenny rather than the issues at hand
PK adds 0 excitement to the issues of the day

WTF has N'Ireland got to do with us?

A panel of the usual suspects who would not have a clue about trying to live on the AIW with expenses to match their salaries...

Lost all respect for PK since he jumped to Dinnytalk,listening to his interviews with FF/FG/LAB as opposed to SF/PBP or any left leaning Independents is like chalk and cheese,all he is now is a spokesperson for neoliberalism.
