And now (finally) it’s time to see what happens next. The trailer for the second season just premiered recently, and the whole gang is back … and so are the doodles … and the inappropriateness … and the heartichokes. And Finn.
Everyone is out there watching GIRLS and Downton Abbey and Sherlock and Masters of Sex, and I am telling you: if you are in your late 20s or 30s … THIS is the show you need to be watching and discussing with your friends. Because it IS your life. Maybe your life at age 16, but definitely your life. Remember trying to lose your virginity or trying NOT to? Remember mini-backpacks and giant leather belts with flower buckles? Remember spending Friday nights at the local coffee house (Holla, CK’s!) because there was no other restaurant nearby that let kids sit around for hours smoking cigarettes and generally being totally obnoxious?
Let’s discuss this trailer and what we can expect in season two of My Mad Fat Diary
New Mean Girls:
Chloe redeemed herself in the last episode (or at least, Rae came to a healthy conclusion that all friends can be bitches at some point, and we have to let it go), so for a good ol’ dose of Mean Girl Mayhem I’m going to guess these girls fit the bill. We have Sporty Bitch and Snooty Bitch on this couch complete with scrunchies and sleeveless camel colored turtleneck sweaters. I’m on board to hate them already.
Looks like Archie is going to keep trying to shove himself into that tiny closet he likes so much. That’s a shame, Archibald, because I was totally into that guy at the sezzy partay. And this girl is wearing clogs … CLOGS. Not to mention the mini backpack and the pigtails. Archie, we all know you know better than that.
I love Rae’s diary graphics in the first season. They perfectly punctuate the voice over narrative, and present the creative aspects of Rae’s particular … oh who am I kidding? THEY MAKE AWESOME GIFS, ok? The doodles make gifs more fun. I love them.
So, Chloe may not remain a Grade A Mean Girl, but she hasn’t lost all of her horrible friend charm. Here she is pressuring her two best friends to have sex before they are ready. Oh Chlo-AY. Looks like the quest for a kiss in season 1 will give way to ULTIMATE quest for the big D in season 2. Rae looks stoked. At least Izzy is in it with her this time.
Nothing. I’m telling you … NOTHING … will make you swoon more than Finn and Rae’s relationship.
Holy smokes, they are HOLDING HANDS walking into school. That’s some Edward Cullen level shit right there, y’all.
Look at that sweet kiss in the car, and he’s all smiley and telling her to scoot back in his ridiculous accent that I can’t understand and YAY Rae looks so happy! I cannot.
Excuse me, Finn, but the door is jammed did you say? Are you and Rae engaging in some closet time make out sessions reminiscent of that 7 minutes in heaven? Because despite how mortified she looks, I think that sounds like a spectacular idea.
AND WHAT IS THIS?
HOLY HELL WHAT IS THIS OMG HE LOVES HER SO MUCH LOOK AT THAT LOOK AND THOSE LIPS AND I WILL DIE WHEN I SEE THIS CUTENESS.
FINN AND RAE FIVE EVA U GUISE.
Okay, guys. Someone pick me up off the fangirl floor because My Mad Fat Diary comes back in February, and that is still a couple of weeks away. In the meantime, we can all listen to The Stone Roses and The Cure on a non-stop loop. Like I don’t do that anyway.
Seriously, this is one of the smartest, wittiest, most heartfelt shows I’ve seen in years. It is way beyond just about every teen show airing in the US right now. You won’t be disappointed. Follow Rae, aka @sharonrooney and Finn @nicomirallegro on twitter. They’re adorable.
Have you seen it? Are you dying to see what’s next for Finn and Rae? Chop and Izzy? Mrs. Drewhurst?
