See the complete second series of The Inbetweeners, starting with the boys going on a geography field trip to Swanage.

People have been falling over themselves to heap praise on The Inbetweeners. It seems to be the supposedly smart indie-kid choice of show, sitting snugly beside Skins. It’s the Muse fan equivalent of Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and Coming of Age (aka The Worst Shows Ever Made).

I’ve been doing my best to avoid it because, like all shows as popular as this, with immediately used catchphrases (like ‘Clunge’), I invariably hate them on sight. Instead, I’ve stayed away, let Ver Kids have their fun and stuck to watching a whole bunch of other stuff. Then, I took the plunge.

What hits you about the show initially, is just how old the main characters are. There they are… a bunch of grown men walking around in school uniform eyeing up barely-pubescent girls in short skirts.

Honestly. It’s like being stuck in the Angus Young section in an AC/DC audition room. Only with more stubble.

The jokes are pretty realistic, that much is true. That said, most people in their last year of secondary school are about as funny as finding a used condom in your lunchbox. They titter and snigger at naughty words, ho ho ho, as well as seemingly always talking about their genitalia. HO HO HO! It’s just like hanging around with morons again, listening to bad indie music and being followed by the smell of hair gel and skid-marks.

Fact is, like school, The Inbetweeners is plotless, urine-thin and doubled over in smut. It’s Carry-On with acne. It’s Beavis & Butthead without the music videos. It’s effectively the kind of show that idiot teenagers pretend to identify with and middle aged blokes grab imagined memories from. As such, it’s a complete waste of time and effort.

Tune in for this garbage and die a little inside.
