Sitcoms won't fix gender imbalance, but they're a star

Two sharply observed comedies created and acted by women are rightly being lauded, says Lucy Sweet - but they only serve to highlight the lack of relatable female-driven TV shows.

The Derry Girls soundtrack is your dream '90s playlist

If you find yourself both drawn in and disoriented by the familiarity of the show, you can blame the music playing in the background.

"Dirty English bastards!" rages Granda Joe at boybands gyrating on the TV. So now may not be the best time for the girls to announce their trip to a Take That gig in Belfast. Despite being forbidden, they'll do anything to get there. Cue a pilgrimage involving Sister Michael and escaped polar bears.

Derry Girls episode 2, review

Iconoclastic sitcom that deserves its growing reputation.

Sean O'Grady, The Independent, 12th March 2019

Judith Roddy blazes through this episode as Ms De BrĂșn, an iconoclastic new English teacher who rides into town to unlock the girls' inner fiery poets. While the younger generation are baring their souls, smudging their eyeliner and getting into red wine ("It tastes a bit like blood!"), the elders are off to the pictures to be baffled by The Usual Suspects. This is premium sitcom, metronomically doling out a laugh every 10 seconds with apparently no effort. Perfect.
