I will start by saying that I am a fan of the actors in the show, I liked fresh meat a lot it was great and I wish they had continued to make more of them with the same group of people who worked well together.
This on the other hand is somewhat poor, the humour's quite weak and just doesn't seem to hit the mark.
Other characteristics that annoy me about the show :-
1. All the male characters are shown to be complete idiots and are continuously being publicly humiliated while the female characters seem to be shown as "Strong and Stable" types. When I was in school it was the complete opposite so some elements of reality here would of been nice.
2. The gags seem to range from unfunny to bad to just wrong. At one stage on the second series the gags run out and they have to resort to attacking a mans genitalia for no reason to try and get a laugh. I'm sorry but that type of humor might work in the US but I would like to think here in Great Britain we are capable of coming up with something better than that.
The whole show really does seem to have a feminist vibe to it, which in all honesty is not surprising considering the way the BBC seem to have been lately. I will not be watching it anymore.
