News & Interviews for Derry Girls: Series 2
Skilfully blending fact with fiction, the personal and political, the nostalgic with the thoroughly modern, [Lisa] McGee's creation has been acutely observed yet uproariously funny.
At its best, Derry Girls hits the emotional intersection of cringe, earnestness, and slapstick.
Some topical shows explore events that hit maybe too close to home to feel enjoyable now. But being a period piece, Derry Girls doesn't have to stand in for current news cycle trauma -- its placement in history stands on its own.
But who could feel unmoved to see the group once again turning their back on history to huddle together under a thrift-store stars and stripes that is missing 30 or so of its stars?
The show still manages to straddle the line between gleefully funny and deeply moving, effectively adding an extra dose of the latter this time around.
[I]ts second season once again shows that it's possible to balance the mundanity, naivety and near-unshakeable bravado of teenagehood with something more gently profound. As the gang themselves would say... it's a cracker.
It made me laugh like few things in recent years....I wanted to savor the second serving, but it was all I could do to spread the three hours over three nights. That's serious self-control, folks.
Derry Girls' central message of finding resilience in laughter, therefore, is more valid than ever.
If it does nothing else, the second season of Derry Girls reminds viewers that no one wants to go back to the militarized borders, checkpoints, and simmering violence of the nineties.
Amusing and worthy example of the driest British humor one can find, Derry Girls continues to use nostalgia to tell a funny and moving story. [Full Review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for Derry Girls: Series 2
2d agoRATING: A+ Creator: Lisa McGee Director: Michael Lennox Derry Girls Season 2 definitely is as hilarious and bingeable as the first one was. By now you really like all of the characters and you know them, for instance the first time the nun appeared in this Season I instantly knew that she's going to be pissed on by everything. The Writing still is brilliant as well is the Direction. But the noteworthy things are the Production Design and the Costumes.
Jan 16, 2021Remarkable, incredible, phenomenal.
Dec 27, 2020I could watch this show every night of my life. HILARIOUS! Sister Michael alone is worth the price of admission. Terrifically clever writing and acting! Would love to give it 100 stars!
Dec 19, 2020Just a beautifully written and produced series -
Jul 26, 2020I still love the over the top acting and can't wait for season 3.
Jun 10, 2020Amazing show! Can't believe I hadn't watched this earlier. Only complaint is that there are only 12 20 minute episodes, but quality over quantity I guess!
May 24, 2020I did like this season and, once again, it packed a good amount of laughs. I don't think it quite reaches the heights of the first season though and I found myself laughing a wee bit less. The emotional impact of the finale also was not quite up to the previous season's level. I'd still recommend to anyone who finds they like British sitcoms however. I'm also quite intrigued to see where season 3 goes now that the troubles are done with.
Mar 19, 2020Since I'm usually a big fan of Irish humor and so many people I know love this show, I watched the whole thing. The over the top acting never got less painful for me. I don't get it.
Mar 06, 2020Derry Girls is fantastic! I've binged the show multiple times
Feb 27, 2020This show is incredible, I don´t remember much from the history, first because I´m not Irish and also because I was a teenager back in the 90's so not at all interested in politics or the world as such. But the characters show us just how important in one's life the moment they're living is. Nicola Coughlan and Jamie-Lee O'Donnell Show a heartfelt and powerful intensity when in character (specially Coughlan), that we long to see in an actor but that nowadays they lack of. so, as you might have guessed, the cast is fantastic! The soundtrack is fantastic, the editing and photography are fantastic! It is fantastically written, soooo witty. I can't get enough of it!
