I'm planning on catching up with the rest of the snowflake challenge (um, eventually >.>) but I've been thinking of making a primer/picspam for Some Girls anyway so it seemed prudent to combine it with this :D
According to imdb,
At the heart of the comedy is Viva (Adelayo Adedayo), whose ambition is to stay motivated and go to college. She lives with her dad Rob (Colin Salmon) and her stepmother Anna (Dolly Wells), a New Zealander who also happens to be Viva's sadistic PE teacher.
Viva is great friends with Holli (Natasha Jonas) whose entertaining, violent outbursts are legendary. Saz (Mandeep Dhillon) and Amber (Alice Felgate) complete the gang. They talk about everything from history homework to their ambitions in life. They share everything: their clothes, their moods, their secrets and - occasionally - their mothers' tranquillisers.
I LOVE THIS SHOW A LOT, YOU GUYS. It's been called the female Inbetweeners but omg it is SO MUCH BETTER than the Inbetweeners but maybe I'm biased because I hate the Inbetweeners and kind of really want to marry Adelayo Adedayo.
REGARDLESS. This is Some Girls.
Some girls, you take one look at them and you think you know all about them, right? Well, look again.
You know when people judge you, and they put you in a box, and they say you’re something and you’re not? I hate that.
Saz has got an interesting personality. On the outside, she’s proper sarcastic with serious attitude problems… but on the inside… the same.
My girl Amber has been my friend since… Well, always, really. She’s proper jokes with no issues. Unless being a bit thick is an issue.
As well as being Holli’s best mate, it’s like I have to be her mum and dad as well. But then, she has to be a mum and dad to all her brothers and sisters. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn't want her any other way. Except for hitting people, thieving stuff and being a tearaway, she’s a proper lovely girl.
There are other people of vague import, like Mel, the teenage mum who lives on the estate; Anna the hilariously evil PE teacher who's dating Viva's dad; Viva's perpetually horny brother, Jamie; Amber's (ex-)boyfriend Brandon who is mostly a massively creepy douchebag but the show actually deals pretty well with his creepiness so it doesn't make me as uncomfortable as it could, yay show; Rocky, the ~bad boy~ Viva starts dating and Joe, Saz's not-so-fake boyfriend.
But pretty much the people I care about are the main four girls because they are AWESOME and obviously I ship them all together because this is me (though Saz and Joe are SO ADORABLE). But if they (and the pretty pretty graphics) haven't convinced you yet, here are more reasons, mostly in spoilery gif form, why this show is so incredibly great.
YOU GO SAZ, FOUR FOR YOU, SAZ
I TOLD YOU THEY WERE ADORABLE
speaking of canon couples who're adorable
and also hot
did I mention Viva's my favourite of all favourites
but basically yeah I love all their stupid faces
If you don't have the sudden and unstoppable desire to watch this then there is no hope for you.
If you do, YAY MY MISSION IS (nearly) COMPLETE! Nearly because the final step is convincing you to make me fanworks, ofc. Like this Attack the Block AU!
