Ok. I know. On my previous blog, I waved my Miranda flag A LOT. But there are new people here! So here I go again.
Miranda is a BBC sitcom starring Miranda Hart. I’ve never really paid much attention to British comedy. But friends–her writing is so fresh, so relatable, so smart–it’s all-encompassing. It appeals to EVERYONE. I spent yesterday evening snuggled up in my bed watching Seasons 1 and 2 with a big fat smile on my face, occasionally laughing out loud. Not every show can do that. To top everything off, there’s a “will-they-won’t-they” love story going on between Miranda and her college crush, Gary, who works as a chef in the Pub below her flat. (look at me using all the British slang.)
What’s brilliant about Miranda, (one thing that happens to me when I go on a Miranda-watching bender is that I start to say brilliant a lot more than cool or great), is that she’s an incredible dramatic actress on the BBC drama, Call the Midwife. And she is simultaneously a FANTASTIC comedic writer and actress.
Here’s a taste of Miranda–Half of Season 1, Episode 2:
Seasons 1 and 2 are available on Hulu! Click through the photo.
(Season 3 has already aired in England and can be found….er…online in ways I won’t exactly condone. I’ll leave it up to you. 🙂
