'Fangirls' is a springboard dive into the heart and mind of 14-year-old school girl Edna. One thing you should know about Edna, she is in real-true-slit your wrist open-honest to god-lightning strike me- love with Harry. One thing you should know about Harry, he is in the world's biggest boyband True Connection and has no idea Edna exists. When an opportunity to change their one-sided relationship comes in the form of surprise concert dates in her hometown, Edna sees it as a sign. Clearly, they are meant to run away together and fall in love. Mission 'When Harry met Edna' accepted.
I LOVED this show, and if I could, I would watch it several more times and sign any petition to have this tour the country several times, seriously I have my pen out. It is hands down my favourite show of the year. Not just five stars, I am giving the show all the stars like confetti. My eternal inner fangirl started to SQUEEE ten minutes in and hasn't stopped freaking out ever since. It is relatable, fun, the writing is clever, and the premise is entertaining. You don't need to be 15 years old or live with one, to fall in love with this show.
Fangirls' has been Yve Blake's obsession for the past several years. It started when she met a fangirl that confessed she was willing to slit someone's throat for the chance to meet Harry Styles of One Direction. Naturally, this led Yve's curiosity down a rabbit hole of fan culture and eventually to the conclusion that fangirls are extremely capable and powerfully enthusiastic young women. Very much like young men who scream their lungs out and sometimes cry at football games.
