Inbetweeners series

This is a 2008-2010 British series created by Damon Beesley and Lain Morris about four best friends in high school trying to make it through from all the bullying, peer pressure and finding girlfriends. It stars Simon Bird (Will McKenzie), Joe Thomas (Simon Cooper), Blake Harrison (Neil Sutherland) and James Buckley (Jay Cartwright) as the ‘inbetweeners’ meaning they are not nerds, but they are not popular as well. The first episode starts when Will McKenzie transferred from private school to public school because he was bullied, so the mom says.

Will claims it is not that reason but it was. Will wears glasses and carries a briefcase to school. He is smart but his smartness can lead to arrogance and being pretentious. He first meets Simon that has to show him around because the principal said so, but he refuses because he carries a briefcase and looks like a nerd. Simon is nice and sweet, but he can be naïve sometimes. He is love with his best friend Carli D’Amato, played by Emily Head. She sees him as just a friend because she has a boyfriend. Simon grows to like Will because he is funny and smart. He introduces his other friends Jay and Neil to Will. Jay is funny and says he has sex with everyone and has done things the guys haven’t done. In reality he is still a virgin and is scared to talk to girls. Neil is sweet but not intelligent at all. When I first saw this show on BBC America, it was just too funny. It is usually shown on channel 4 in the UK. BBC America shows it one week after it premieres in the UK. My favorite characters are Will and Neil. One of my favorite episodes is in season one called ‘Bunk Off’ when they skip school for one day, but things go wrong when they start drinking.

I have always liked British series ever since I watched ‘Benny Hill Show’. The show has witty writing and the actors are hilarious playing their characters. There are some vulgar words said, but it is still funny to me. If anyone has watched the show, you know what I am talking about. If you haven’t you can watch on YouTube. There is a motion picture for the show as well that premiered in 2011 when they went to Greece on summer vacation. It was number one in the box office in the United Kingdom and earned more money when it premiered in the United States. It was adapted into an American show last year but did not do well and was cancelled after one season.

      Thanks for the comment RQ. I liked that episode as well. Will thought he would get Carli's friend as a girlfriend but he messed it up. The hobo's shoes were soaked in pee and Simon wore it anyway. So funny.

      Hey! My sister likes this show - I've seen a few episodes, which were quite funny; especially the one where they're all trying to get into a nightclub, because one of them fancies rotten a particular girl. The doormen let them all in except one, because he's wearing trainers/sneakers, and the rule is ' shoes only' so he's desperate, and ends up bargaining with a soiled tramp for his grotty shoes, which reek of p!ss lol! Anyway, they all eventually get past the bouncers, and needless to say, you can imagine how he failed to impress his intended! The characters are a right strange, assorted motley crew of twerps and wide-boys, but it was pretty funny.
