Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Being not from Derry, the only way I can follow the dialogue is by using subtitles. But the ones on youtube are quite utterly mad and rendered it even more totally incomprehensible.

Funny that - it seems completely clear to me, but then I'm from a different country!

Protestants/unionists insist on calling Derry Londonderry whereas for nationalists it has always been Derry. So even the Title is unapologetically nationalist. But there the nationalism almost ends, because the whole series is a fairly merciless pisstake of nationalism, Catholicism and their perception of Protestants and The English. Apparently the series is Channel 4's most popular launch of a new series in many years - in England...

That's fascinating. I have no problems at all with the accents. I discovered Derry Girls a few weeks ago and binged on it, howling with laughter, until my wife pointed out that it's a kid's show and could we watch womething adult now?

She couldn't understand a word, but got most of the gags anyway -- a convent school education helps I guess.

Like most well written series, it works on a number of different levels and for a number of different demographics...
