I thought it was quite good and alot better than Mrs Brown's Boys but no Moone Boy.

So a show with adolescent female teenagers with strange accents is funny? How?

Slow enough start but thought the second half had a few laughs.

Insert obligatory quote from show and laughing emoji.

I thought it was decent and plenty of potential, it was only the first episode and didn't have any huge issues with the accents to be honest.

Plenty of dodgy accents around Derry..

If you don't like watch Mrs Browns boys but give the show a chance.

That's probably it... more suited to immature wee boys watching the trials and tribulations of four adolescent girls  :)

Well Fawlty Towers it wasn't.  It was shite.  I've seen funnier, better acted school nativity plays.  Tony posts better jokes on the death thread.

Has potential, but probably not my cup of tea tbh. Definitely lifted in the 2nd half. The finale of the detention scene was very good.
