I am a little bit in love with Miranda Hart. She is just so beatiful and quirky and hil-arious!
Also, she is tall. Very tall. There is (according to Wikipedia), 185cm of her to love. Such fun!
This is one of the only TV shows that I’d actually really love to own on DVD. Miranda’s like the cool, kooky friend you like to hang out with because she makes even talking about herself really entertaining.
In the show Miranda is a single 30-something woman whose mother is desperate for her to get married. She lives above the joke shop which she owns and is managed by her best friend. Hilarity ensues. The whole cast is brilliant, and even includes the quintessential “sexy nice guy”. Huzzah!
Something most people probably love about the show is Miranda’s asides spoken directly to the camera. It’s just so easy to love her and be on her side in any situation.
Something else I love about the show is there’s so much of Miranda Hart herself in the show and she’s so likeable as a person. That’s always a relieft, isn’t it? Watching her on the Graham Norton Show was really fun too.
Her playfulness and sense of humour are also obvious in her official website
, which in my humble opinion is well worth a visit if you’re a fan of the ‘Randa.
The most fun I’ve ever had watching this show was with a roomful of other women. A lot of the jokes are so much part of the female experience. So many lol moments and a room full of ladies howling with laughter – seriously contagious! One of my favourite moments was when Miranda was in the changing rooms getting into her togs at the swimming pool. She started contorting herself around inside her towl in the most awkward way to avoid showing any body parts. Meanwhile there are other (slimmer) women just stripping off all around her. She ended up in a tight little ball on the floor. I just about wet my pants it was so funny – and come on, we’ve all been there!
Last year a friend asked me if I know any good British shows and I had trouble thinking of any that weren’t either period dramas or reality shows. Now I have one! An awesome one! Watch Miranda and feel good 😀
