    Seems to me that the mcguire family have brought a nasty violent edge to the programe. Not sure if it depends on which character it features but  the programe appears to be getting heavier and less light hearted.I think losing sheila was a massive blow, i'm praying to god she makes a return. That said, it's still the best thing on t.v.

    I don't think their introduction is spoiling the show in anyway, i actually think they have improved it alot. The aggression of the maguires as been handled well. They aren't to agressive and the aggression they do have makes you laugh aswell.

    I have to say I agree there... so much so, that I set this up...

    I think that they added something to the show and Series 4 would have been cr*p without 'em... no Kev and Veronica, Marty soon out... Sheila gone etc. etc. etc.

    So three cheers I say - especially to Mimi - by Chr*st, there's one SCARY woman!

    I love the McGuires! Especially Paddy, he cracks me up Like when he's going around the pub, going, "I AM NOT GAY and throwing furniture around.

    I agree the Maguires have brought a more violent element to the show but I think this series in particular we have seen a much softer side to them and I think without them the show would not have been half as good.

    I still miss Kev and Veronica but i reckon the Maguires are cool i dont think they are too violent i mean theres some punching but thats really it in the 5th season and drugs obviously but thats not really much considering the Jocky hand out E's like candy. I love Jamie and Micky there my Favourites. I like the family alot and think they make a great addition

    I wouldn't say they've gone soft - we just haven't seen their business all that much. It's the business side of the McGuires that's the agressive bit. There have been some allusions to it though. Like when Frank was looking for someone decent and opened a trunk of a car because he heard someone in it and then Paddy came out and just gave him this look. That was old school McGuires.
