Just finished watching all three seasons of The Inbetweeners, at the suggestion of the UK language assistants in Lorient. I gotta say, it was pretty great. It’s a British comedy about four socially awkward highschool boys living in suburbia who like most teenagers, just want to lose their virginity. It’s filled with a ton of mishaps, failed attempts at getting in with the ladies, and quick insult & ridiculous slang-filled dialogue, making it feel a lot like Superbad. But British. Apparently MTV has been given the green light for making an American version, but seeing how terribly they failed at re-making Skins (and somehow made a shitty show even shittier), I doubt I’ll be tuning in.
…That’s a lie, I’ll definitely be curious.
This would’ve been really useful in a conversation I was having the other night.
