Watch List: “Derry Girls”

A candid, family-centred comedy and coming-of-age story, Derry Girls follows 16-year-old Erin and her friends as they grow up in the 1990s of Northern Ireland.

Written by Being Human screenwriter Lisa McGee, the story is set during the time of ‘The Troubles.’ Teenage life goes on despite challenging external circumstances, and Erin is more concerned about her boy crush not knowing that she exists, or her nosey cousin meddling with her life, than the political turmoil surrounding her. You can watch it on Netflix.
