The new TV adaptation of the Sally Rooney novel Normal People, about the relationship between two teenagers from Sligo, has been causing quite a stir.

RTÉ's Liveline yesterday received calls from listeners who objected to the show's sexual content.

One caller named Mary likened it to a "porno movie", while another named Tommy expressed concerns about "the national broadcaster promoting fornication".

Jennifer Gannon, who recommended the show last week, and Joe O'Shea joined us for our weekly TV slot to discuss this and more.
