Feel Good is a British comedy-drama television programme created by Mae Martin and Joe Hampson.[1] The six-part programme premiered its first episode on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2020, after which all six episodes were released on All 4. Netflix handled international distribution and released it internationally on 19 March 2020.[2]

Plot[edit]

The show follows the development of George and Mae's romance in contemporary London. Mae, a Canadian comedian (a version of Mae Martin's own persona) meets George, a repressed middle-class English woman, at the comedy club where she performs. The pair begin dating, and George learns that Mae is a former drug addict. George encourages Mae to attend a Narcotics Anonymous meeting, where she meets fellow recovering addicts like Maggie, a quirky middle-aged woman who takes Mae under her wing. As the series progresses, George struggles to tell friends and family about her relationship with Mae, to Mae's frustration.
