Old School

Skins might be claiming all the buzz, but for a real school experience, the anguish of The Inbetweeners has it nailed on. Without the glamour, shocks and illicit drug use of its E4 predecessor, The Inbetweeners instead finds its entertainment rooted in realism, as four geeky guys struggle to pass the days a couple of rungs off the top of the social ladder.

Under publicised during its first season last year on E4, the show at struggled to garner huge figures for its opening couple of episodes, but after a mere glimpse of the magic, new viewers were instantly hooked and by the time the finale was upon us, a big cult following had emerged.

Now in its second season, the jokes are still going strong with another four episodes this run. No doubt the show will make it onto Channel 4 before long, but if you don’t catch it on E4 every Thursday while you can, it’s a pointless wait for the genius.
