everyone should watch Some Girls (the full version of the post, this time >.>)

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favourite interview, a book) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

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,

Some Girls is a Britsh sitcom about the lives and loves of a group of quirky 16-year-old girls who play on the same school football team and live on the same inner city estate. We join them on their bumpy journey through adolescence, taking in boys, sex, cliques, teachers, heartbreak, fun and even some football along the way.

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.
And these are the girls!

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.
This is Viva! She is awesome and smart and wants to be a psychologist and is my favourite to ever favourite.

Saz has got an interesting personality. On the outside, she’s proper sarcastic with serious attitude problems… but on the inside… the same.
Saz is the sassy sarcastic queen of my HEART and I love her to pieces. THE FIBONACCI SEQUENCE TURNS HER ON &saz;

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.
I feel like this quote encompasses everything I could possibly say about Amber. Except: AAAAAAAAAAAMBER <3

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.
HOLLI IS PERFECT YOU GUYS. Her violent outbursts make my life and she actually is 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.



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!
