Nearly 10 years since they last hosted their own TV show, the dirty Dublin puppets were back last night to wreck some fresh havoc on our screens.
Podge and Rodge will always have a special little rude place in our hearts. Ever since they appeared on 'The Den' in the 90's, the evil twins have been on our screens following various incarnations through the years, from 'A Scare at Bedtime' all the way up to 'Podge and Rodge's Stickit Inn' from 2009.
'Stickit Inn' was the last time the pair hosted their own TV show on RTE, and last night they were back with a bang (or is that more of a whimper) as they returned with 'The Podge and Rodge Show'.
People questioned what decade we were in:

It's been so long since we've seen an episode of 'A Scare at Bedtime'.
Bring back a Scare at Bedtime because just watched new #podgeandrodge & it was dull.

Ah, remember when Monday night's on RTE Two was pure gold?

There's absolutely no need to bring 'Sausage Party' into this conversation:
#PodgeAndRodge are bad in the same way that Happytime Murders and Sausage Party were bad and if you can't admit this, you lack courage and conviction send tweet

Would you watch an hour of it?
#PodgeAndRodge should definitely be a hour long! ðŸ˜‚ðŸ'ÂðŸÂ»

It seems the pair were a bit too PC for some:
Good.....but a bit watered down, let’s get back to really offensive stuff please!! We’ve enough PC on every other channel! #PodgeAndRodge

Now THIS is something we would get behind:
Great to see podge and rodge back they should do a president debate ðŸ˜‚ #PodgeAndRodge

Some didn't hold back on their thoughts...:
Ouch, #PodgeAndRodge a laugh free zone tonight. Comprehensively jumped the shark from the A Scare At Bedtime series when it was the darkest, perviest show on RTÉ. Sad to see it so sanitised

But all in all, you “can't bait a bit of a laugh”:
