Clean Break is a crime drama series that premiered on Fuel TV in 2015. Set in the small town of Wexford in Ireland, the show explores the lives of several characters and the various conflicts they face. The series is primarily centered around a character named Frank Mallon, played by Aidan McArdle. Frank is a car dealer who is heavily in debt due to his gambling addiction. He is desperate to find a way to pay off his debts and provide for his family, who are also dealing with their own personal problems. Frank's wife, Roisin, played by Kelly Thornton, is suffering from depression, while his daughter, Corrina, played by Moe Dunford, is struggling with an unwanted pregnancy.

Frank's desperate situation leads him to team up with his two friends, Danny and Joe, played by Damien Molony and Adam Fergus respectively, to pull off a heist at a wealthy businessman's house. The heist proves successful, but it also triggers a series of events that puts Frank and his family in danger.

The show features a strong cast of characters, each with their own distinct personalities and motivations. There is tension between Frank and his friends as their loyalty is tested, and the show explores the various moral dilemmas faced by each character as they navigate their way through the criminal underworld.

The performances in Clean Break are excellent, particularly that of Aidan McArdle as Frank Mallon. He brings a sense of authenticity and vulnerability to the role, making the audience empathize with his character despite his questionable decisions. Molony and Fergus also deliver strong performances as Danny and Joe, respectively, and provide a great contrast to Frank's character.

The cinematography is notable as well, with the show making great use of its coastal locations and showcasing the beautiful landscape of Ireland. The music used in the show is also fitting, with a mix of traditional Irish music and contemporary tracks adding to the overall atmosphere.

Clean Break is a gripping crime drama that in many ways is a character-driven story. The show explores themes of friendship, loyalty, family, and morality, and the audience is left to question the choices made by each character. The show's pacing is consistent and the tension builds throughout, making each episode an engaging watch.

Overall, Clean Break is a well-crafted crime drama that benefits from strong performances, compelling characters, and a beautifully shot location. It is a must-watch for fans of the genre, and for those seeking a character-driven story that explores the nuances of morality and loyalty.

Clean Break is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (6 episodes). The series first aired on June 13, 2012.
