    how do we not have a thread about this show? it's been on my list forever and i kept putting it off. and for what? it is brilliant!



    just started and i can't stop grinning at it. i love the characters, i can barely make out what they're saying half the time, the mischief is top notch, the music is fun. omg. love it! (hope it doesn't nosedive).

    It’s so, so, SO good! It’s one of those shows that gets even better with repeated viewings. Instant classic status!

    How DO we not have a topic for this? It's so so good. It really is the first 90s nostalgia show that relates, despite it being girls in Northern Ireland. Being the gay boy (you presume he is) in a gaggle of girls in 1995 is uber relatable.

    Can someone edit the title with capital letters please? It's too good for am's disrespect for pronouns.

    It is the best thing on TV.

    Nicola Coughlan (the little one) is inspiration for life.

    I've very recently discovered she's very enjoyable on twitter.

    I think he works better as a straight character - the only boy in a school full of girls who think he's a joke.

    I've still yet to watch all of the second series, but the first is genuinely exceptional. It's important to acknowledge the huge influence Nadine Coyle had on the show:

    Surely James will be gay.

    I completely agree that this programme is PURE JOY.

    Surely the third series should be on soon-ish, but I can't find anything to confirm they've started filming?

    Sometimes it feels like they are going in that direction but then I wonder if they will be tempted to go with Erin and James. I'm not sure that I would be pleased with that change in dynamic though.

    I remember hearing the writer saying that she envisages Erin and James eventually getting together, but that it may not actually happen during the course of the series. So she definitely sees him as straight.

    This show is the best thing on TV in a long time. It reminds me of Beautiful People in many ways (not just for the 90s setting).
