5.0 out of 5 stars Great British comedy, 11 Sep 2011
This review is from: The Inbetweeners - Series 1-3 - Complete [DVD] (DVD)
I saw the film at the cinema prior to watching an episode of the Inbetweeners, and subsequently borrowed this boxset off a friend. It's the perfect tonic after a long day at work, and I have been chuckling away at many an episode over my dinner.

Let's get one thing clear: if you are of a sensitive disposition and easily offended (and haven't watched an episode of the Inbetweeners before) I would recommend that you avoid this. Because although it's a series about teenage boys' antics and there is a degree of innocence throughout the series, it also contains a lot of swearing, some crude scenes and an abundance of sexual references. Personally I found this a touching series about adolescent escapades which invariably do not go as planned, leading to much hilarity. You get to know and love the characters, but it's not just the four boys who provide the laughs - even their parents are amusing, and one of my favourite characters is Head of Year Mr Gilbert.

Highlights of the series for me was the trip into London and the first time they attempt drugs - two very funny episodes. For the record, it is clear from the events that the producers do not condone drug taking, they realise it as something that many teenage boys do attempt and tackle it brilliantly as they show a less glamorous side to it and what can (and often does) go wrong when taking narcotics.

The acting can be a little wooden at time, but it is still incredibly entertaining and highly amusing. Recommended, especially at the price on here, which is fantastic value for a triple CD boxset. I will undoubtedly purchase this, along with the film when it is out, as it's a comedy I could happily watch again and again.
