'Reeling in the Years' returned to our TV screens last night on RTÉ One right before the 9 o'clock news and finale to 'Smother'.

This latest series of 'Reeling in the Years' covers the years 2010 to 2019.

As rubbish as 2020 was, viewers underestimated just how rough a time we had exactly a decade earlier...

The 'Reeling in the Years' episode covering 2010 kicked off with the rather amusing "man falls on ice" bit that has become iconic.

It was soon followed by a more sombre memory - the passing of beloved broadcaster Gerry Ryan.

Another tragedy highlighted was the Haiti earthquake.

The 'Reeling in the Years' episode concluded with the IMF bailout, a low point for the Irish economy.

More hopeful was the Chilean mine workers story.

Other points of note in the 'Reeling in the Years' installment included the wedding of Amy Huberman and Brian O'Driscoll; the kick-off of crime series 'Love/Hate'; and sports events, such as when Cork beat Down in the All-Ireland football final (although there were complaints of the Meath-Louth All-Ireland final, in which the ball was bundled into the net, being omitted).

Generally speaking, viewers of the episode felt shook as the aftermath of the recession loomed throughout.

Here were some of the Twitter reactions to the 'Reeling in the Years' 2010 episode.

'Reeling in the Years' continues this Sunday on RTÉ One at 8.30 p.m. with the next episode covering the year 2011.

You can expect such events as the resignation of Brian Cowen, the election of Micheál Martin as party leader, Queen Elizabeth II's state visit to Ireland, President Barrack Obama's visit to the country, and the election of Michael D. Higgins as President of Ireland, to be covered by the 'Reeling in the Years' episode, among other national and international events.
