Femslash February Challenge: Day 13

Day 13 of female-centered stories with canon wlws!

Derry Girls by Lisa McGee

Length: TV show, for now two seasons, each one 6 episodes of 24 minutes. It's shorter than it seems :-D

Happy ending or not? Not finished! Given the tone, I assume so. It's a sitcom.

Who is the wlw?

There's no romance (for now at least), it's only about identity, which is not obvious, in such a catholic country. Also, once she's out, in s2, the other characters starts to wear rainbow badges and it's cute.

Is there other representation? Not a lot, but Sister Michael, the school headmaster, is fat and a very good character.

Warnings? It happens in the 90s in Northern Ireland, so there is frequent talk of terrorism.

What about the plot? A group of friends (Erin, her cousin Orla, her friends Michelle and Clare, and Michelle's English cousin James) try to make the best of their teenage life in their Catholic high school. Despite the Troubles in 90s Ireland, and sometimes annoying family.
(James goes to a girl's high school because he's English, and everyone would beat him up if he went to the boys's high school. It's admitted by everyone as a fact of life)

How good it is? It's very, very good. The teenagers are and think like real teenagers, the humor is incredibly funny, the soundtrack is nice (given the setting they use the Cranberries all the time and I'm glad about it). I really like how the mix of ordinary life and dark political background is used. You can tell the writer is Irish and was here.
There's just a bit of second-hand embarrassment in a few episodes. Especially the ones with Father Peter. Cette entrée a été crosspostée au https://flo-nelja.dreamwidth.org/688204.html. Commentez où vous voulez.
