I put off watching My Mad Fat Diary for a long time or at least long enough that season 2 is right around the corner (this February). Why did I not watch it? I don’t know, probably because I judged it. Why would I want to watch a show about a sad girl going on and on about being fat, I have my own life for that 😉 But people on tumblr kept recommending it so I finally gave it a try on xmas day and we ended up watching the entire season.
To say we loved it would be a vast understatement, the show is pure genius and utterly loveable. It’s so well-written and clever, as many British shows are. It’s a genuine show that a girl like me growing up who isn’t perfect looking can love and see that they can have more.
There are so many wonderful things about this show, you’ll just have to take my word on this. I love Rae and I love her group of friends, all of them.
Also the music, reminds me of my teenage years so much. Yeah, I’m old, at least compared to most of the viewers of this show.
This scene was just, no words.
I love Rae and her moments with Finn, the chemistry is just palpable. Also they are both just too cute.
So go watch it and I’ll shut up.
