4.0 out of 5 stars As a university student..., 22 July 2010
This review is from: Off the Hook [DVD] (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.
