Reviews

When you've spent your loan in another continent and returned home to become your parents' worst nightmare, your name is the only thing that's true on your CV and you'll do way too much to get a free drink, that's when you know you're a Drifter.

Meg (Jessica Knappett) is 24 and she's on her second gap year. In Leeds. She would be getting herself a ‘cool arty media-y job' but life seems to be getting in the way a bit. She hasn't had sex in twelve months, her ex won't leave her alone and her work uniform is a mobile phone. Her two best mates, Bunny (Lydia Rose Bewley) and Laura (Lauren O'Rourke) are going through a similar quarter life crisis. Posh daydreamer Bunny is a ‘born entertainer' struggling to come to terms with the mere idea of work as she waits for her call to ‘showbiz'. No nonsense Northerner Laura is on the lookout for a quick fix, to ‘win the lottery or have a bad accident and get a compensation payout.' For these girls, things aren't quite going as planned at work [flyering], at home [Mum and Dad's] and in the bedroom [walk in wardrobe]. It's a good job they're all in this together.

Extras
• Audio Commentaries on three episodes with Jessica Knappett (Writer/Meg), Lydia Rose Bewley (Bunny) and Lauren O'Rourke (Laura)
• Behind the Scenes Video Diaries

Format: DVD
This show is so much fun. It's like a female equivalent of "Men Behaving Badly." Gawky brunette Meg, voluptuous redhead Bunny and scary blonde Laura (who opens wine bottles by smashing them on table edges) are all friends, twenty four years old, and trapped in theatrically visual, but humiliating, jobs at a promotions company where they hand flyers out on the street in bizarre costumes.

All are looking for a form of escape. Meg has tried to retreat to the bosom of her family, but they have used her absence to turn her bedroom into a walk-in wardrobe, and her efforts to launch a career in the arts/media are getting her nowhere. Bunny loves being admired so much, she is delighted when she's recruited into being a life model for a dodgy old man or snogged by a lesbian in a burlesque club. Laura's escape plans are coupled with fighting to get her boyfriend's attention away from role-playing computer games peopled with ten-year-old players. Sometimes drinking wine out of the kitchen sink with curly straws is all that a worn-out girl can do.

I especially liked several would-be seduction scenes in different episodes, where it's the young woman who's making an utter hash of the whole courting process, and the young man who's getting more and more disenchanted by the minute. That's a neat bit of role reversal.

The three lead actresses are all brilliant, with the vain yet ditsy Bunny being my favourite, and so is the actor playing Meg's creepy ex-boyfriend/now landlord. The writing is sharp, and there is no padding. Please let there be a second series!

This series is absolutely hilarious! Best comedy series I have watched in ages - just wish there were more episodes, I didn't want it to end! Would highly recommend this to anyone, males and females, but I would say females would probably relate to it a bit more. :-) Perfect present for Xmas I would say.

Jessica Knappett is a comedy genius, her writing & acting is just phenomenal! Reminds me of other great comedies that have been on E4 in the past, put still feels fresh & new. Male & Female viewers would love this show, great stocking filler for any teenager that has a cheeky sense of humour

I was actually quite sad when I saw for the first time an episode of Driffters because it remind me of brilliant series Pulling which was brutally axed by bbc after second season.There are so many similarities between them.Have to say that Driffters aren't as good as Pulling but it's still entertaining and worth watching. Looking forward to seeing the next series.

Excellent delivery time and a really good price. Just hope my cousin's German girlfriend liked this series as much as we did. Probably not.

This show is awesome. It's funny, awkward and realistic in the situational comedy used throughout. It's like a female men behaving badly but better in my mind because it's so relatable with the characters being so believablyI'm I recognise them as old girl mates. I love this comedy, it got real laughs which whilst I often find things funny I rarely express because I'm a typical man lol Honestly it was a cracking series, time to buy series 2 now I think! :) keep em coming E4.
