Product Description

Meet Danny, a new university ‘fresher’ who just wants to cut his past loose and get on with his life… but he’s about to get an earth-shattering blast from the past in the form of Shane, his outrageous ‘slacker’ mate from school – the ‘worst best friend ever’. Blagging his way into last minute clearing, Shane proceeds to gatecrash Danny’s entire uni existence and ransack his best-laid plans.

Danny and Shane have been friends for as long as they can remember, but as they embark on their university adventures, can their friendship withstand the test?

Sharing the flat with the hapless heroes are the feisty Scarlet and the permanently morose Fred – who has misanthropy down to an art. Follow them muddling through bad dates, worse parties, social mishaps, financial disasters, political coups... and all the other trials and tribulations of life as a fresher.

2.0 out of 5 stars More Irratating Than Funny 12 April 2011
By Seven Ragged Tigers TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Im usually a fan of BBC Three comedy series,sadly this one left me stone cold,at least after the first episode.

To begin with I had hopes for this series,I will admit the first episode did make me laugh a couple of times,and seemed to be a good base to build the rest of the series on,how wrong I was.Because what followed was the most dull and humourless drivel Ive seen in a long time,and I once watched Spice World for a bet.Every episode serves up the same joke over and over again,the stupid and insensative friend,who thinks hes wonderful,getting his only mate into trouble with his stupid ideas.There you have it,its the same thing time and time again,the joke worked in the first episode,but then it extremely quickly,became,first boring,and then irratating.The cast try their very best,but to no avail,its just one of the most unfunny comedys I have ever seen.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard work 16 Dec 2010

You know there's something wrong when James Buckley's depressive is the funniest thing in the whole programme.The leads just aren't interesting and the script only scrapes the funny barrel when it goes into farce.I so wanted it to suddenly burst into life as the episodes progressed but it never did.Not one I will be likely to watch again and probably destined for the next charity bag.

4.0 out of 5 stars As a university student... 22 July 2010
Format:DVD
I liked it. I didn't expect to, even though I liked the Inbetweeners (and James Buckley, who plays Fred in Off The Hook was in that), because very often the stereotypes and yoof language is just annoying and so unrealistic that it's stupid and not appealing in the slightest.
However, with Off The Hook i was surprised. I'll admit to being momentarily thrown off because it was described as having 'hapless' teens in it, which is usually a secret code for 'oopsy daisy crap tv'. But not this; it was funny, it was (mostly) believable, and the acting was some of the best I've seen from a young cast, most of whom haven't been on TV that much. Danny especially, was very good at being an everyman, and even Shane was likable, managing to avoid most of the pitfalls a sidekick usually falls into, and somehow being funny whilst ruining Dannys plans.
The supporting cast, although sometimes a little weak, is mostly good, with the standout for me being the character of Figaro, who, whilst only appearing in one episode, left a lasting impression on me as the classic snob of uni (in my experience, there's the odd one in every university!) and was also well acted.
Overall, a very fun, enjoyable series that I'd happily watch over and over.
