The Inbetweeners: Series 1 Reviews

September 5, 2018
As The Inbetweeners proves being a teenager in suburbia may be intolerable, but ultimately it's usually quite an enlightening and fulfilling experience - not to mention a funny one.

As funny as the show is (and it's very funny), the best thing about it is the fact that it has at its center four guys who are just feeling their ways toward adulthood, even if they don't yet quite grasp what that will mean.

Filthy, hilarious and much truer to actual teenage life.

It is, like much British comedy, unabashedly vulgar where its American cousins are relatively coy, an attitude that feels alternately trying and refreshingly healthy.

On "The Inbetweeners,'' you feel the humiliation and awkwardness - as well as the growth spurts - of being a teenager all over again.

Crude yet breezy, the series has plenty of awkward charm, if precious little to separate itself from the countless yarns of this variety that came before it.

Unfortunately, the odd gently funny exchange between the four male leads aside, there aren't very many actual jokes to speak of.

It would be interesting to know who E4 thinks the target audience is... Perhaps it is us middle-aged types, for whom the pain and embarrassment is now distant enough to be laughable. Or almost.

I found The Inbetweeners to be incredibly entertaining. It is also very British, in that the slang, language and humor are very different to what is traditionally seen on American sitcoms.

Skewers the pangs of adolescence with broad laughs, likable characters, a fizzy Britpop soundtrack and enough candour to really resonate.

Inbetweeners manages to be both unfunny and un-redeeming.

There's something inherently funny about these four idiots trying to make it through their late teens that strikes a chord for everyone... and it's bloody fantastic.

Fans of "Freaks and Geeks" or "American Pie" will recognize and welcome the coming-of-age humor in BBC America's "The Inbetweeners"
