Despite a few dodgy accents that only people from Derry would really notice...that was 'motherfucking' funny

I realise it's depicting adolescent kids, but I found some of the humour a bit too 'juvenile' - although I properly laughed out loud at some parts.

I'm sticking with it.

The blond one was overacting a bit and her accent was far from perfect (she's from Galway) but the other lead girl (Michelle) was class (and she's actually from Derry). Some great lines.

"I'm not being individual on me own!"

Sláinte muthafuckaaassss!

I'm still having a wee laugh about some of the stuff from last night. Local comedian, Kevin McAleer, was very good as boring Uncle Colm in the spirit of Fr. Stone from Father Ted

His radiator story was very well told

I watched both episodes this morning and enjoyed them. plenty of comedy quips are thrown in

"Did you kill that wee nun girls?"
".....of course not"
"then why were you pissing on her body and making sandwiches?"
