Another Netflix series I binged up is made and set in Ireland: Derry Girls. It’s set in
LondonDerry during the Troubles.
The accents are so thick, I have to turn on subtitles, but it’s totally worth it. I almost stopped watching it when the kids accidentally did something destructive, but I stuck with it until I got the flavor: There are no serious consequences to anything the kids do. You get the occasional news report about the very serious consequences to things grownups do, but the kids are okay.
Emily Brennen, of The New York Times, says it all better than I could in her article, “Comfort Viewing: 3 Reasons I Love ‘Derry Girls'”.
Every subject, be it personal or political, is mined for irreverent comedy.
The show’s got sustenance….
I’ll prolly watch it again.
