A shock to the funny-bone - at first, but then...
20 January 2013 | by (Seattle, United States) – See all my reviews

Upon watching a first season episode, not the first episode either, I didn't think I'd like the show or even really understand it. See, I'm from the U.S., which I'm told is a bit of a lengthy walk from the U.K. and can be different with words and meaning and accents etc., but I discovered that I most definitely get the humor and the characters after watching a number of episodes; I decided to start from the beginning after my initial intro to the show. I fell in love with Fresh Meat over time, but it was Kimberley Nixon whom I quickly fell for and was the biggest reason why I stuck with the show. I'm following season 2 now on Hulu and I hope that another season or two is on the horizon, because I just can't get enough of it. It's brash and brazen, sometimes shockingly so, and it makes me laugh my head off, something I don't get from American shows. If you like vulgar British humor, give this one a go!

Update 03/03/13: I just finished watching the last episode of season 2 and I wouldn't be surprised if there wasn't any plans for a 3rd. The 2nd started off strong, but quickly faltered, becoming stale and humorless with pointless plots and uninteresting story lines. I got the sense about halfway through the season that they knew there would be no more, so they put less effort into it. The last episode of season 2 is somewhat of a return to the show's roots, but by then the damage was done and I was glad to have it over with. I give the 1st season 8 stars and the 2nd season 5 stars for an average of 6 stars.
