Turn on the CC and enjoy one of my favorite comedies of the last decade. It's always my #1 rec.


This candid, family-centered comedy and coming-of-age story `Derry Girls' follows 16-year-old Erin and her friends as they grow up in a world of armed police in armored Land Rovers and British Army checkpoints in the 1990s of Northern Ireland. Written by `Being Human' screenwriter Lisa McGee, the story is set during the time of The Troubles. Teenage life goes on despite the bleak circumstances, and Erin is more concerned about her boy crush not knowing that she exists, or her nosey cousin meddling with her life. `Derry Girls' is a reminder that the teenagers of Northern Ireland dealt with the same growing pains as the rest of the world.
