My Mad Fat Diary

Why do the British make the best shows????  This is an amazing, funny, sad, sweet, realistic coming-of-age drama adapted from Rae Earl’s “My Mad Fat Teenage Diary.” It’s completely addictive; I finished it in two days and am now dying for the second season (which hasn’t even started filming and probably won’t air until 2014). Also, it takes place in 1996, which is kind of interesting.

This stand up show was called Do Nothing.  Words to live by.

So good! I will be watching all of Grandma’s House immediately.

Also, I would have guessed he was 25 years old, at the most, but he is 32.
