Summary: Based on the semi-autobiographical writings of rising UK comedy star Miranda Hart... Miranda has always stood out from the crowd. She's over six foot tall, lacks any kind of grace and has an odd habit of dancing in inappropriate situations. She lives in her own chaotic world, making a living by owning a joke shop which is managed by her best friend and taskmaster Stevie.
My idea of a fun Thursday night activity is booting up the netbook and hunting for ideas for future blog posts and eNewsletter issues. Ok, so that's not the fun bit. I mean, it is but it isn't. The part of the night that I really enjoy is watching Miranda. Yes, I said it: I watch Miranda. And, what's more, I LOVE HER. So, what is Miranda? Miranda is a weekly comedy that screens on TV1 in the later part of the evening for err obvious reasons (namely language, sexual references, and adult humour). Miranda is tragically, tragically funny, and terribly awkward, and the whole show is set around, well, pretty much that. You get the idea that anything that can go wrong in Miranda's life, will. Times a hundred. Like when she decides she's going to buy a new outfit for a date, and ends up at a store that specialises in dressing men in drag. It's something that pops up quite a bit, so you get the impression that perhaps, in the past, she would get mistaken for a man quite a lot. She has this habit of bursting into song at the strangest of times (seriously, I do it too, but never in a job interview), and she can never quite bring herself to say the word 'sex' without giggling. In some ways, she's forever ten years old. I highly recommend watching at least one episode and, if you're lucky, you might still catch one or two on tv. If you don't, we do have the DVD, although be patient because it has a fair few requests :)
And, well, 5 things we don't have in common:
