I haven't really been around the world, but I haven't been here.
I've just finished watching season 2 of My Mad Fat Diary.
I'm still so surprised by how much I like it (love) it and how GOOD
I remember last year when I first saw the adverts which were on at the same time
as Utopia and thinking, wow this looks pretty shit, what is E4 doing commissioning this
when they've got something as good as Utopia that is about to grace our screens.
So. so. so. wrong. MMFD deals with real issues that not only teenagers face growing
up, but grown adults too.
So many times I have found myself tearing up (full scale crying) at the situations Rae, the protagonist
finds her self in, mentally and physically.
Such a brilliant programme, it's great to see young new faces on TV whose acting skills I feel at the moment are incomparable.
And to whoever created the soundtrack for MMFD, they need an award. the music is so brilliantly placed and fits E V E R Y S I N G L E S C E N E as if each track has been made for the specific scene.
So all week my Spotify playlist has been littered with songs that I grew up with, that remind me of those angsty teenage years that are ever so apparent in MMFD.
