Reviews

From the award-winning creators of Peep Show, Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, and starring Jack Whitehall, Joe Thomas (The Inbetweeners) and Robert Webb, Fresh Meat is Channel 4’s latest comedy drama series.

The series follows a group of six students about to embark on the most exciting period of their lives thus far--university. Away from home for the first time, on the brink of adult life, they are about to discover who they really are. From the moment they ship up as freshers at their shared house, their lives are destined to collide, overlap and run the whole gamut of appalling behaviour and terrible errors of judgement.

They are: JP (Jack Whitehall), public school boy with good teeth and an inflated sense of entitlement; Kingsley (Joe Thomas), charming, loveable and crushingly insecure; Josie (Kimberley Nixon), overly enthusiastic, determined to experience ‘new things’, however bad they are for you. Then there’s socially awkward and know-it-all Howard (Greg McHugh); straight talking, hard-living Vod (Zawe Ashton); and finally Oregon (Charlotte Ritchie), desperate to be cool and terrified of being boring.

At last a fresh comedy - and that's quite a feat these days. At first I thought it was a little weak until half through the second episode I realised this is comedy drama with the emphasis on drama. Once you forget about the comedy then you can enjoy a rather subtle and at times deep look at student life. I was particularly drawn to Fresh Meat as both my children are at university. It also takes me back to my college days - the comedy/drama is still relevant. Great writing and acting. All the characters make an impact. So looking forward to the second series.

Fresh Meat was my favourite find of 2011. The scary thing was that the whole premise of a group of Freshers sharing a house was still very reminiscent of my own student days (back in the 80's), including the obligatory trip to London on a fleet of buses for a Student Union march. It is the brilliant contrast of characters coupled with superbly observed writing that really makes this series. I love the head strong Vod, the doomed whimsical love / lust between Kingsley and Josie, the rich girl desperately trying to be cool (Oregon) and then the eccentric nerd (Howard). There are some really laugh out loud scenes, i.e. loved the student / lecturer dinner party and then confusion over the theories of `Jedward'. Roll on Series 2

It's rare for an ensemble comedy not to have at least one weak link among the principals but Fresh Meat is one of the best written and acted dramas I've seen in years. The writing is witty and authentic and the performances are all good. Joe Thomas particularly excels in his 'socially awkward' mode and Jack Whitehall is hilarious as the posh twerp JP but Kimberley Nixon steals the show as Josie, the borderline certifiable girl-next-door with a mouth like a docker. The series is episodic but also has slow-burning themes which run throughout, the most immersive of which is the will-they-won't-they relationship between Kingsley (Thomas) and Josie; a potentially hackneyed storyline made good by subtle writing and fine acting.

This British TV series gives us an insight on the culture of university life in Britain. The content consists of hilarious humour with steady paced and different storylines that all revolve around the main fact of Kingsley's love for Josie. Definitely worth a watch if you are looking for young adult British humour!

Somehow I missed this when it was first broadcast - was C4's publicity not up to scratch? Anyway, this has proved a good opportunity to see the whole first series. And it's good: all the characters are well-played, and each episode is fine, with lots of details spot on.

But but but.. so much of it is a reminder that most of them have done better work. Having a Robert Webb cameo is an unmissable reminder that Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong's Peep Show is a mile above this. Maybe it's the move to a hour long show rather than a half hour one (or in commercial TV terms, about 48 minutes vs 24) because their Magicians feature film for Mitchell and Webb was middling too.

Similarly, Joe Thomas is basically reprising his 'very cute but rather inept' character from The Inbetweeners and, unlike almost every episode of that, I was never at risk of wetting myself laughing here. And, being late to the party, I saw this after seeing Tony Gardner being better in Bluestone 42 (and before that, My Parents are Aliens and as half of Struck Off And Die).

So I'm looking forward to seeing series two (which I also missed on TV) but I'm also hoping it lives up to the talent of those involved, rather than being their second best work.

It is a little 'out there' for some and I no a lot of people find Jack Whitehall hard work (I did prior to watching this but now love him!) but i highly reccommend this series. Funny and compelling. Possibly not for the prudes but brilliantly written and acted throughout!

This series, having recently ended, was brilliant. It seems nothing has been done quite like this before, the university setting feels new and exciting and the characters (especially that of Jack Whitehall) are very funny and relatively deep.
The feeling of Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain, with moments of severe awkwardness that really makes a good comedy (eg. The Office) making it particularly reminiscent of Peep Show.

Seeing as this DVD hasn't been released yet I can't comment on the extras, but if they're anything like other Channel 4 DVDs I'm sure they'll be of plenty and very funny.

Although possibly not up there with comedies like Peep Show or The Inbetweeners, this really is "fresh", it's nice to see Channel 4 keep making gems like this and Friday Night Dinner. I, personally, am really looking forward to it's release.

Now I know that's a bold statement but as a teenage-aimed comedy/drama I believe season one has enough funny dialogue and relationship issues to make it stand as one of the best of its kind. It's just a shame season 2 went downhill...
