I despair at the existence of this show
27 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

For me, this show has single-handedly facilitated a complete loss of all faith and respect I had for the British Broadcasting Corporation.

Now I recognise some people will like this show. I also recognise some people will not like this show. However, the current IMDb rating of 3.8 and the almost ABSOLUTE lack of positive reviews from other sources lead me to believe that most people despise this show. And as well they should.

The only reason I can think for its recommission is that it enables the BBC to tick its 'young' box and think nothing else about the matter.

The main problem I have with the show is that the writer simply cannot writer. Simple as that. As Charlie Brooker would say; 'It's like watching a play written by a dog'.

There is no storyline to each episode. Full-stop. In a show professing to be a unique, young insight into college life it, in reality, shows us nothing at all. It could have enthralled us with the intricacies of college relationships, politics and all the agony that comes with college life (Inbetweeners, anyone?)! Instead, the most utilised set is a shed.....yes a shed.......where the characters' sit, exchange euphemisms for sex, and occasionally talk to a cardboard cut-out of Jeremy Clarkson, who is no doubt appalled at the use of his effigy in a show quite so diabolical.

The irony is that for a show about college life, hardly any scenes are shot in the college (Sheds are far more interesting you see). Invariably, in the few college shots there are I tend to find the extras wandering about in the background of far more interest and attraction than the principle cast (does anyone else find this?!). Perhaps for this reason the producers thought it best to shoot the core elements of each episode in a shed, eliminating all other more interesting stimuli so that we have to focus on the characters' forced, poorly delivered diatribe.

The characters are flat, undeveloped, devoid of any charm and seem to soley exist to give me something to hate and to effectively terminate the future careers' of the cast.

Coming of age has no redeeming features, not one. I take it as a personal insult to the license player and to the intelligence of young and old alike.

I'm 23. I was a student not so long ago. This does not show student life. It does not show comedy. I am simply lost for anymore words. I think I'll go weep in the corner now.

Be ashamed of yourself BBC
