Here are some of the TV shows that we are currently loving, and think you will too..
Up front: I only started watching Derry Girls a few weeks ago after hearing so much about it and OMG it’s amazing! I watched season 1 twice in one week. It’s set in Derry (obvs!) in the 1990’s and follows the girls (plus the wee English fella) as they navigate normal teen life in the shadows of The Troubles. If you love a really great laugh, Irish humour, good music, pop-culture references and a lot of heart, Derry Girls is for you. P.S, Sister Michael is my Spirit Animal!
Season 2 just finished, but you can catch up on all 12 episodes on the Channel 4 player.

This Is Us
Season 1 and 2 are currently available on Amazon Prime in Ireland and Season 3 is airing on RTE 2.
The Umbrella Academy
Based off of the comic books written by My Chemical Romance frontman, Gerard Way, the new-ish Netflix series is a little slow in some parts but really gripping one it gets going. It also stars our very own Portlaoise man, Robert Sheehan. The plot revolves around a dysfunctional family of adopted sibling superheroes who reunite to solve the mystery of their father’s death, and the threat of an impending apocalypse. If you’re thinking “not another superhero movie/TV show”, we hear you, but this is actually good and not the same-old thing we’ve seen in 20 movies at this stage.
Season 1 is available on Netflix now with Season 2 currently in production.
