We all have those go to funny shows that just make you laugh and laugh no matter how many times you watch them. Well, like many of you I have one and that show is "Miranda".
"Miranda" is a BBC show but luckily when I started watching it, it was on Hulu. It also helped me get through a rough time but I won’t mention that so moving on. "Miranda" is also different in that it breaks the fourth wall, meaning she actually talks to us, the audience. It’s something that not many movies or shows do. Actually, I’m not really sure if they could even pull that off right, not like "Miranda" does. Miranda is about a woman and her tiny friend who own a joke shop, that she lives above. Her mom is a different story and not very supportive of what her daughter does.
There’s also a romantic interest but I’ll leave that for you to see for yourself, because I think this is one show not many have heard of before. Also, Miranda is the best person I’ve ever seen and by that I just mean I love how unapologetically herself she is no matter what anyone else says or thinks.
Jennifer Rhodes met Melanie back when True Blood was popular and they have been friends ever since. She loves TV (especially things that make you smile), Doctor Who, Finding new shows, and regularly provides awesome fandom items for Muser Giveaways. Jennifer is now a proud member of the VIPers - the Melanie's Muses Spotlight Feature Team!
I am a sucker for a show that breaks the 4th wall, especially when they do it well and this show does it EXCEPTIONALLY well! I absolutely LOVE Miranda!
I know most Americans associate Tom Ellis with his breakout role being Lucifer, but the fact is he had been a hit in the UK for YEARS Before! From Merlin, to Doctor Who, and of course Miranda just to mention a few! In fact in the UK when Tom Ellis goes to conventions you would often see Miranda listed with as much importance as Lucifer!
As Jenn said, Miranda is just a feel good show, and has great rewatch potential! Some episodes (like the one with the therapy) are watched quite often just because they never get old! The supporting cast is filled with famous (well English type famous) faces including Patricia Hodge who is just brilliant! Dysfuctional families, the non-perfect people, and just the sort of situations that seem ridiculous at first but then you can totally imagine someone you know having it happen to them!
Everyone in this house loves this show, and I highly recommend it. You may have seen "Heather" pop up on the live show - well this is what it's from! Watch for running jokes, fabulous callbacks, and my favorite - hiding in plain sight (SHE WAS A COAT RACK!!!!)
As of right now in the US Seasons 1-3 are airing on Hulu - Or are available to watch via Amazon or IMDB with Ads. The 2014 Christmas special is also known Season 4 - depending how they choose to label it. And to make matters forever interesting - it is usually not available on the same sites as the first 3 seasons (because why would it be) - and right now that part is on Amazon Prime!
**Note - the trailer isn't technically Season 1 - because this show is apparently obscure enough that even YouTube doesn't have all the trailers *rolls eyes* but fear not - nothing in here will ruin anything!
