The Sentimental Agent Episode 5: May the Saints Preserve Us

The Sentimental Agent_May The Saints Preserve Us_ Title Card

An interesting opportunity for Carlos arrives from Texas which involves an Irish castle and moonshine.  However the Irish myths and custom agents make this a more challenging proposition.

Personal Synopsis

Who would of thought of moving a castle across an ocean? Of course Carlos is the right import and export agent to make it happen. The fascinating part of this episode to me is the amazingly terrible Texan accents and the deep rooted stereotypes at play in the writing of this show such as a crazed Irish playwright and hard whiskey.
