Week after week 'Derry Girls' has been proving a hit with viewers but last night's episode may just be our favourite.
Once again the show seamlessly tied in the events of The Troubles in Northern Ireland into the show's storyline, as a broken television meant that Ma Mary and aunt Sarah missed the all-important announcement that a ceasefire had been declared in the monumental Good Friday Agreement.
There were absolute scenes on the streets of Derry with the celebrations, while the girls and the wee English fella were unaware of it all living out the movie 'Carrie' at their school prom.
It was a fantastic episode filled with its usual mix of sharp one-liners and a perfectly timed reminder of just how significant the IRA ceasefire was, almost 21 years to the day after it happened.
After watching tonight’s episode of #DerryGirls do you now see why I get so upset when Westminster threatens the GFA? Peace was hard won and remains a delicate precious thing. Also, how fucking brilliant is @LisaMMcGee

Also can tonight’s Derry Girls please remind people in Westminster how hard people fought for peace in Northern Ireland and how they deserve so much more than being a pawn in their Brexit ❤️

They should show the last 5 minutes of that episode of #DerryGirls in parliament, so the deluded fools might get even the faintest whiff of why it’s so important to the people of the north that hard-won peace is protected, Brexit be damned.

My English husband no idea why the tears are still tripping me after watching #DerryGirls. It’s all still so raw. And the timing of the episode couldn’t be more pertinent. #protecttheGFA #GoodFridayAgreement

Can people watch that final scene contrast it with the final scene of last year's final episode and see how far we have come..How the GFA is still so important to the peace. Don't let anything threaten this. We can't go back #DerryGirls

Oh and while we have you, Erin and James anyone? We could totally get on board with this.
