My Mad Fat Diary was full of not only drama and pain, but also fantastically witty humor. Innuendos, sarcasm, and seeing Rae awkwardly handle certain situations kept the audience from turning this show off. That was another thing that pulled me in too I guess. I can’t watch things that are really heavy with emotion the whole time, but My Mad Fat Diary balanced humor with emotion so well. The whole thing is narrated by Rae’s internal monologue in the form of her diary entries (thus the title), so occasionally the audience sees a doodle or fantasy that is just absolutely hilarious.
