All six episodes from the first series of the comedy drama following the lives and trials of four new sixth-formers. With his parents recently divorced, private school boy Will McKenzie (Simon Bird) has to move into the sixth form at the local comprehensive. After an initial rough patch, not helped by dressing like the archetypal geek and carrying a briefecase, he makes friends with Simon (Joe Thomas), Neil (Blake Harrison) and Jay (James Buckley), who, although they're slightly more streetwise, are just as uncool. Desperately trying to raise their kudos, they soon embark on a series of embarrassing atttempts to try and woo the opposite sex, with varying degrees of success.
Combine the juvenile smut of Superbad
with the cringing embarrassment of Peep Show
, against the 'stylish' backdrop of Grange Hill
, and what do you get? E4's hilarious comedy The Inbetweeners
. A super sharp, one-liner packed celebration of the highs and lows of being a teenager. Perfectly capturing the relentless disappointment of suburban adolescence, the show's four main characters yearn for sex, booze and cheap thrills, without the emotional maturity, money or ID to get them. Briefcase-carrying nerd Will (Simon Bird) has recently left the relative sophistication of private school to join Rudge Park Comprehensive, where he befriends Simon (Joe Thomas), Jay (James Buckley) and Neil (Blake Harrison); a group precariously straddling the social gulf between the in-crowd and the outcasts. This release contains the complete first series, and features a wealth of rubbish insults, even more rubbish come-backs, and plenty of mum-jokes. With some invaluable life-lessons on wooing the ladies, bunking off school, getting served in the pub, and why you should always, always remember proper etiquette on a roller coaster.
