Haters Back Off!
14 October 2016 | by leeprew1See all my reviews

This show is brilliantly oddball. It perfectly captures the other side of the character of Miranda who up until now has been restricted to Youtube videos, a book and stage shows.

Miranda is an amalgamation of the cringe-inducing and seemingly lacking in self-awareness internet 'stars' who post videos that go viral for all the wrong reasons plus many over the top exaggerations from the deviously warped minds of the characters creators.

This series has gone as far as to actually humanise a character who at times has seemed far from human. There's now more of a meaning and purpose behind the character and it has only helped further flesh out a wonderfully zany and interesting person.

This isn't the all out wacky and surreal show I thought it was going to be. It has a lot more depth and emotion than that. It actually raises some very interesting points about mental illness and obsession. Is Miranda really as unaware as she seems of the world around her or is she suffering from some form of obsessive- compulsive disorder or even possibly autism?

I think it is fair to say that the show creators were fully aware that many would not 'get' the joke. After all, the character Miranda is well known for rebutting the hate sent her way on Youtube. Yes, she is monstrously annoying and seemingly has no self-awareness. But that's what's so fun and interesting about these characters. It's not like this hasn't been done before. And I'm sure as with those other characters that lack their own self-awareness they will come under fire from those who seemingly do not get the joke. Of course, there will be those who do and still find it not to their taste as after all, comedy is very subjective and if you know nothing of the character previously or even have no knowledge of Youtube you're probably going to have a hard time relating to Miranda.
