We're discussing: Derry Girls / Series 2 / Ep3 / 'The Concert'
Whatever we said whatever we did we probably meant it. Pauline, Jeanie and Marie-Louise come clean about their own teenage misdemeanours - some of which happened when they were old enough to know better. How far did they go to meet their heroes and would they have booed Led Zeppelin off the stage for playing their new song? The facts about the escaped polar bear are unearthed with the truth proving even more farcical than the fiction. Marie-Louise refuses to believe that BBC news presenter Donna Traynor could spread Fake News and is a line of white tape adequate protection from a potential explosion? Is it possible to get paid extra for turning up late for work and is it ever wise to ask a virtual stranger on a date? Take That. You probably deserved it.
