I am astounded by this program, when I saw the initial trailer I honestly thought it looked like nonsense, it wasn't painted in a good light at all. I only really checked it out due to morbid curiosity.

Well here we are nearing the end of Season 2 and I am still absolutely glued to the screen. I look forward to Mondays simply to see this.

Such an incredibly accurate portrayal of life as a teenager in 90s England, this show brings a lot back for me, good and bad. It takes many twists and turns, but our constant is Rae, insecure, sweet, broken, amazing Rae, she is so relatable it's almost upsetting at times, yet reassuring too.

A real life account of a battle with mental illness, while trying to fit in, trying to grow up, this show tackles issues few have tried to before and it works, seamlessly. I think we needed a character and a program like this, to highlight the demons that those with depression and self image issues deal with every day.

I don't really watch TV, but mine is on every Monday now at 10pm without fail, the music is awesome, the characters get straight in to your heart. It's hilariously funny, and yet gritty all at once. I love Rae's Mum, she is absolutely bonkers. It's perfection.

I simply cannot praise My mad fat diary enough. I hope it will be around for many many more seasons. This is not just entertainment, it's a lifeline for many, this is clear just browsing the comments on their Facebook page. If you haven't watched it, get to 4OD and start now, but be warned you will not be able to turn away.
