Derry Girls is Deliciously Entertaining

Seriously though.

New to Netflix this past month is the six-episode series Derry Girls. The show follows around a group of teenagers growing up in Northern Ireland in the mid-'90s, during the Civil War in Ireland. The show is already a hit in Ireland, having aired on TV throughout 2018. Now that it has made it's way to Netflix, it is making a similar splash. And rightfully so. The comical show is very entertaining, and a quick watch. The first season only has six episodes, making it the perfect show to watch over break (however, you'll probably be left wanting more). It's rather lighthearted and funny, making it an easy watch, while also having a foreign twist. Because it is an Irish show, having some historical background of Ireland, or even processing an Irish heritage, will allow for the show to make more sense and be more enjoyable.

Each episode features a different dilemma the almost all female group faces, each issues connecting back to their culture or Catholic high school. However, many of the struggles the teens face are one's teenagers all around the world also struggle with, just with a different backdrop and context than most American teenagers may be accustomed to seeing. But this is arguably part of the show's charm. The differences from the life of American teenagers today is what helps make the show entertaining and a unique watch. It's because of these differences that Derry Girls is a show that American viewers should go into open-minded. However, after the first episode or two, these cultural differences will add to part of the charm of the show, rather than something difficult to understand/comprehend.

There is already buzz of a season two currently being in the works, which we can only hope makes it to Netflix as well.

You Know You're From Trumbull, CT When...

The best memories are made in this boring, little, Connecticut town.

1. The majority of places you will consider to eat at are in Fairfield or Westport... Colony, Shake Shack, Country Cow, Playa Bowls, BarTaco

2. But if you find yourself too lazy to get on 95 for food, Panchero's is the go-to... never Chipotle. If it is past midnight, the choice always comes down to the McDonalds in Monroe, where you are almost guaranteed to see a group of people you know, or Merritt Canteen.

3. Once you got your license, your Friday night plans consisted of picking up friends, driving up and down Main Street, and, somehow, always finding yourself at the THS parking lot seeing who's car is there because there is nothing better to do.

4. In the Fall, you couldn't wait for Friday so that after school you and half of your grade could walk to Plasko's Farm for ice cream and apple cider donuts... and hope you could get them before the owners would yell at you to leave. (This one only applies to Hillcrest Middle School kids, AKA the inferior middle school in town).

5. You couldn't wait to be a senior so you could officially lead the BLACK HOLE at football games... if you were even willing to go in the cold.

6. You looked forward to the annual Senior Scav, the last week of summer before your senior year where a list of tasks is passed down by the recently graduated class... the official kickoff to senior year.

7. You pass by Country Club Rd. and get flashbacks from the worst Cross Country practices ever. Driving up Daniels Farm Rd. in the Fall and Spring, you are conditioned to yell "hi" out the window to your friends at practice.

8. You knew someone who worked at Gene's gas station... and found yourself spending more time there on the weekends than you would like to admit.

9. You are convinced Melon-heads are real after frequenting Velvet St. to see the abandoned insane asylum with your friends, IF you didn't want to drive all the way up to Fairfield Hills in Newtown.

10. You have had/have been to at least one middle school birthday party at the Trumbull Marriott.

11. You know that the 25mph speed limit on Whitney Ave. is way too slow... and can't help but hit a little air going down the huge hill at the top.

12. The guy at Towne likely knows your name.

13. You never find yourself turning right out of THS... that side of town is irrelevant for those who do not live there.

14. You know to avoid the Merrit Parkway from 4:00-7:00pm at all costs.

15. You know more than you would like to about people you aren't even friends with... in a town so small, things get around very quick.

16. Going shopping really means going to Target, or any store in the mall, for the millionth time that week.

17. The marching band was the best in the state and you would see them practicing, literally, every time you drove by THS.

19. Depending on the side of town you lived, you spent a lot of time at Five Pennies Park or Indian Ledge Park.

20. You would say you couldn't wait to leave, but when you got to college, you find yourself excited to come back to your hometown so you can reminisce on old traditions and make new memories.
