Trivia

Throughout the show, Orla shows signs of mild autism. In fact, she has typical traits that are usually connected with Asperger syndrome. For example, she takes several things literally, misses social cues and behaves oddly in certain situations. On the other hand, she has a rather high intelligence and a deep understanding in things that interest her the most. See more »

A little nutty but still brilliant
24 December 2018 | by KethinaSee all my reviews

This was an absolute TREAT. I did not know what to expect when I started watching this but after 2 or 3 scenes, I knew I was gonna binge watch this. I dont feel like The Troubles is a historical event that has been touched on very often in popular culture. That´s why I found it so refreshing to see it in a comedic way through the eyes of Derry teenagers.

The writing was spot on, you could never tell what was going to happen or what someone was going to say. Everything was just surprisingly hilarious all the time. If you can overlook the fact that the actors who are playing the teenagers are around ten years older than they should be, then you´ll find their performances convincing. Some of them overacted sometimes (Erin´s character is a little unnatural) but since the whole show is a bit nutty it kind of works.
