Enjoyable On Many Levels
16 March 2014 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Maybe it's because I cannot watch this at home (the local broadcasters won't even think about bringing this in as it is in blatant violation of broadcast rules here), but I enjoy this show immensely. University life in the UK is definitely different from what I experienced in Singapore and Australia.

I suppose the show isn't supposed to be a general view of undergraduate life in the UK, but this particular group of undergraduates are interesting enough to watch over 3 seasons now.

Kingsley and JP are the 2 protagonists of the series. The latter has a seemingly lasseiz-faire attitude to life yet displays an endearing vulnerability at times. Kingsley initially appears to be a homeboy stepping out into the world for the first time, but in time becomes a man of his own.

The other characters support the series well enough. There is the studious know-it-all who tries not to look down on everyone (Oregon), the insecure one who occasionally manages to break through the stereotype (Howard), the hippie-wannabe (Vod) and the girlfriend (sorry, that's the way I keep seeing her - Josie).

I enjoy following the characters around their simple-on-the-outside-but- complex-on-the-inside lives, the interactions between the housemates, the witty banter, the music and the score. Even the rough language is enjoyable most of the time.

Most of the stories are interesting enough, although, as can be expected from any recurring series, there are some dud episodes. But all in all, it still entertains, though I do sometimes wonder if British undergraduates really do behave in this way.
