Critic Reviews for Fresh Meat Series 1

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

The world of the fresher is too obvious a target - reinvention, a practice in which people indulge wholeheartedly on arrival at university, being both inherently foolish and fraught with risk.

Lectures, socials, pubs, clubs, libraries, dates and labs are all undermined by the urge to fit in and feel at home. Fresh Meat manages to capture this to the extreme and this is why the series has been enjoyed by so many.

Nov 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Fresh Meat is for anyone who has ever gone to university, and not just for people who happen to be there now. It's also well-crafted, poignant and very, very amusing - let's hope we don't have to wait another 30 years for something just as good.

Of course, Fresh Meat won't be able to rely on those tricks forever. Too many in-jokes and it could get even more confusing.

It's close-to-the-bone, dark comedy with a house of brilliantly drawn characters that are elevated from student stereotypes to personalities whose ludicrous moments we savour - even if uni is a distant memory.

Hopefully episode 1 is just a slow start to the series as I expect a lot more from the writers of Peep Show!

Nov 13, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

You realise that no matter how original and brilliant you thought you were being, you were actually still a cliché. Unfortunately for the makers of Fresh Meat, their show proves that this truism can be as applicable to comedy as it is to student life.

Nov 7, 2018 | Full Review…

There have been other raw-edged human comedies that, should have been universally hailed as classic rather than cult, but with the right tail wind and if the writers and actors can maintain the pace, Fresh Meat will be name-dropped for a long time.
