It's a show that's split opinion since it first aired on Irish TV last year but it looks like Bridget & Eamon is going stateside. 

The RTÉ comedy production starring Jennifer Zamparelli and Bernard O'Shea has been picked up by Amazon in the US. 

American viewers will now be able to take a peek inside a 1980s Irish home as the aforementioned pair play a husband and wife and their half-arsed attempts at raising a family in pre-Celtic Tiger Ireland. 

What do you make of the move? Will the show be a hit with American viewers? Let us know in the comments.
