Some people originally tried to pin this as just a ‘female Inbetweeners’ but as soon as it was aired, we saw it was much more. While it does contain some of the brilliant aspects of that show, it is also incredibly unique to its focus on a group of young (predominantly) girls growing up during ‘The Troubles’ in Derry.
This adds a historical and emotional backbone to the story, but the show is also non-stop laughs, with every character in the main cast being incredibly singular and hilarious in their own right.
The whole cast is superb, with particular stand outs for me being the live wire performance of Saoirse-Monica Jackson, the hilariously uptight Nicola Coughlan and the hilarious supporting turn from Ian McElhinney.
Writer Lisa McGee is detailing some of her own experiences and mixing them with fictional, and in doing so, she has created one of the finest comedy shows of the past decade.
Rating = 4.5/5
