The four friends at the center of "The Inbetweeners" aren't quite in the popular crowd, but they still aspire to make their mark. To do so, however, they will face countless humiliations. There is no plan that they can't derail, no situation that they can't make awkward. By trying too hard to fit in, they stick out even further. Just like real life. Early episodes revolve around Will (the impeccable Simon Bird) as he transfers to a new school and ends up with an equally maladjusted trio played by James Buckley, Blake Harrison, and Joe Thomas. Buckley life is filled with bravado and big stories as he constantly brags about sexual escapades that seem rather unlikely.Read more ›
"The inbetweeners" ran on the commercial Channel Four network in the UK from 2008-2010 and, as K mentions - British TV series are only usually six or seven episodes per season. So this DVD package from eONE contains all three seasons.
The series follows four boys in a "comprehensive school" in the UK. (Wikipedia defines "comprehensive school" as a state run school similar to high schools in the US. The four main characters are obviously "under 18" (as many lines in the script refer to that) but we're not sure what grade they are in since they seem about 17 in the first season and continue in class as the seasons progress.
One thing to say for these guys is that their hormones are working overtime. They want to "have at it" with not only the young "birds" in school but - ready for this? - with their friends mothers. (If this fact shocks you, then this is probably not a series you will want to watch - honestly - but it's all done with a sense of raunchy humor. I found that a lot of the language and situations in the short 25-minute episodes - reminded me of the "American Pie" series of movies. And I at times it went even further. This may have been a TV series but it probably exceeds most US cable shows in the number of times the F-word and similar expletives are used. And there is nudity but most often bare male buttocks. And the "toilet humor" is not just a style of humor, but a lot of scenes seem to occur in a toilet. And there is virtually a "bodily function" joke at least once in every episode.Read more ›
A tip that I passed on before. Purchase for +-$40 a region free DVD player and purchase non USA DVD's from Amazon UK. The savings (even with the shipping) will more than make up for the cost.
So, here we are in 2012, and the boys have finally jumped the pond. Wonderful. They're on iTunes as well but you can only get seasons 2 and 3 via that service. I understand the movie will be out on DVD in the US later this year, still another reason to live just a little bit longer! :-)
The boy's friendship is evident in each very well-written episode and the situations hilarious. Their experiences and motivations tend to focus on girls and the related angst is typical for their age group For American viewers, think Animal House meets the Big Bang Theory, but with more cursing and British accents.
This is truly a laugh out loud show which is typical of British comedy. We loved the box set and have watched it many times. The humour is still funny even when you have seen the episode more than once. I hope they will continue with this series.
