Not sure that this will be laugh-out-loud funny, but I liked the trailer enough to check it out. Starts January 4th on Channel 4.

Derry Girls follows Erin and her friends Orla, Clare, and Michelle, who are used to seeing their country on the nightly news in a time of armed police in armoured Land Rovers and British Army check points.

Channel 4 are plugging it a lot, it seems to be advertised during every break I have seen recently.

In Between Days, by The Cure, features on that trailer which might be a nod to The Inbetweeners (which featured the same instrumental part of that song)

trailer sells it well if they can keep the tempo up, seen from a distance there ought to be decent opportunities for Barracks humor.

It'll drop quicker than an IRA ceasefire, the same writer wrote London Irish in 2013, I thought it was good but it only got one series. It has much the same actors as that and 6Degrees, Louse Mitchells old nanny from EastEnders is in it, from 2002.

Never saw London Irish but it got really bad reviews from what I recall.

The very last scene was hilarious. It worked really well.

Abandoned ship after 20 mins, just too contrived for my tastes.

Excellent first program. I agree the 'did you kill the wee nun?' scene was laugh out loud funny.
