Review of My Mad Fat Diary

60 minutes

Set in the mid-90s at the height of Cool Britannia, this six-part drama is based on Rae Earl's real-life diaries. It takes a hilarious and honest look at teenage life through the eyes of Rae, a funny, music-mad 16 year old who, despite an eccentric mother, body image and mental health issues, has a huge lust for life, love and trying to get laid.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I cannot express my love for this show enough. It got me hooked from episode one.
it is a great coming of age sort of thing with teenage drama. Additionally to that it deals with mental health issues. throw in some friendship issues, love and a great sound track (this show is taking place in the mid-90's) and you got a great british tv show that creates suspense and really loveable characters. they are all unique and in my humble non-british opinion very british.
I know I am repeating myself but I love love love this show.
It would get more than 5 stars if that were possible.
