Thoroughly Enjoyed it
10 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Watched it and thought new comedy so I'll give it a shot. It included James Buckley (Jay, Inbetweeners) which is another reason I gave it a shot. I thought it was a cringworthy laughter but also a feel good sitcom. I definitely would recommend this if you enjoyed American Pie or the Inbetweeners. Hopefully the show will remain the same and not go downhill from here like other BBC Three comedies do so. It is also available to watch on BBC HD channel which should be pretty awesome. I watched it with a friend of mine so it made the show a lil better by being in the m00d to laugh but overall 9/10. Very well thought out comedy and I thoroughly enjoyed every second.
