Fantastic little known British comedy! The inbetweeners for a slightly older audience!
20 September 2010 | by (England) – See all my reviews

If you love British comedy you will love how not to live your life. It is the Inbetweeners for thirty somethings.

It tells the story of Don Danbury, a late twenty something no hoper, aimlessly plodding through life, going from one comedic failure to the next.

His character starts out as a shallow, hollow sketch of a man, but by the end of the second series he has developed in to a well fleshed out thinking and feeling man, helped by his "carer" Eddie and Don's quest to find the girl of his dreams.

I suggest you start with series 1, then go on to series 2, rather than jumping in to random episodes to fully understand all the characters and get yourself ready for series 3 (starting soon on BBC 3, I can't wait) Series 2 leaves us on a cliffhanger. Will Don, or won't Don? My only complaint and its a very minor one, is that I hope series 3 shows less of Mrs Treacher and more of Eddie. Her character, although at times hysterically funny, is often superfluous.

If you like the Inbetweeners, the Young Ones, 15 Stories High, you will love How not to live your life.
