Critic Reviews for My Mad Fat Diary Season 1

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

An engaging and relatable series that's about far more than the main character's size.

Oct 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Engrossing, affecting but never saccharine, this drama follows troubled 16-year-old Rae Earl...as she tries to deal with her mental health and body image problems while growing up in '90s Britain.

May 3, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the greatest strengths of this show is its refusal to pity its protagonist.

Oct 24, 2018 | Full Review…

It's lovely - honest and painful, real and very funny.

My Mad Fat Diary strikes a good balance between humour and some sharp and very real observations about mental illness.

In these post-Skinstimes, it felt a bit meh. Which goes for the rest of the programme, too.

Oct 23, 2018 | Full Review…

It's full credit to Rooney's performance that it feels like you're watching a docu-soap.

Oct 26, 2018 | Full Review…

My Mad Fat Diary is the series that American teens need to be watching.

Oct 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Rae's a creep, and she's a weirdo. She's also bloody wonderful...

Oct 24, 2018 | Full Review…

There you go again British TV choosing flawless music for your shows...

Oct 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Nearly impossible not to binge-watch, her 15-episode journey is a welcome addition to the teen TV canon.

    A great comedy, with all the happy and sad elements that happen in the life of an average teenager.

    Such a brilliant show, don't be fooled in thinking it's for teens. The way it covers mental health issues is so spot on and especially Rae the lead character she's so relatable even with her attitude and flaws. Must watch
