Can't recommend this more!,
This review is from: The Inbetweeners - Series 1-3 - Complete [DVD] (DVD)One weekday evening a few years ago, I rented the first series of The Inbetweeners from my local video shop. I had to be up early for work the next day so I was only planning to watch an episode or two to see what the fuss was about. I ended up staying up until the early hours of the morning and watching all six episodes in a row.
Sort of a cross between The Peep Show and American Pie, The Inbetweeners is without a doubt one of the funniest TV shows out at the moment. The show centres around four teenage boys who are no longer children but not quite adults (in other words "inbetween"). Like anyone else their age, they spend their days unsuccessfully chasing girls, trying to get into house parties/nightclubs, fretting about exams and trying to get served at the off licence/local pub. Although it's not quite as realistic as a fly-on-the-wall documentary, many of the things that pre-occupy Will, Simon, Neil and Jay, pre-occupy any lad who has ever been 16, 17, 18 or 19 years old. But not only does the show have it's finger on the pulse of Britain's youth, it also makes you laugh in every way possible. There's big belly laughs that cause tears to stream down your face and your ribs to ache ("Feisty one, you are!"); there's laughs that stay with you and still manage to crack you up months later when you remember them ("Bus w**kers!"); and there are laughs to be had over and over when you quote them to your mates ("Ooo, fwend!").

Uhuh, you can't recommend this more eh? While I echo your sentiments regarding the first two series, I find it hard to believe that you have watched season 3, on account of the fact that you reviewed this in May 2010 and season 3 has not even aired yet and we are in August 2010 at the time of writing... :o/ So, why "review" something you have never seen?

Perhaps he is just trying to tell those of us who have never seen or even heard of this programme, like me, a bit about Inbetweeners in general. I read a positive newspaper review of the recently broadcast first episode of the new series, so m.bison's own review here adds to my notion that this might be my cup of tea.

Great review, although I always thought the "inbetweeners" was to do with their social standing within the school - not "nerds", not "jocks", but "inbetween". Still, both explanations apply. To anyone who reads this, this show is extremely funny, with some very lowbrow and crude humour, so if that appeals to you then you must definitely see this!

Too true. I'm going to give 5 stars to the BluRay version of the movie which they're currently filming now - I've seen all episodes of the show so I must know what it'll be like right??
