Love this show!
1 January 2015 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

MMFD is honestly one of the most amazing shows I've watched in the last year. This is the type of television show that needs to be broadcast in America and I wish that it would get picked up here. So many teens/young women like myself will find it incredibly releasable (sometimes in ways that we might not want to admit) and super poignant and funny too. The show reminds me a bit of Skins, with it's portrayal of real life. But really, I just want to make everyone watch this show because of how raw and wonderful it is. The characters are charming but troubled in the ways that teenagers can be troubled, the fantasy sequences are perfection, and the romance is adorable and so sweet. It's addictive!
