Strong performances all round make this a hugely enjoyable new series
Comparisons to The Inbetweeners are inevitable, as the series follows four sixth-formers who talk about sex a fair bit, and one of them's a bit simple. However, it keeps the grossest of its humour (which doesn't hit anything near the worst of the Rudge Park boys' adventures) contained in the dialogue, and really the funniest moments are pure character. Brilliant performances from all four leads make it hard to pick a favourite. Whenever a joke might lag, the girls stay utterly committed and keep the entertainment levels high. Supporting actors are strong too as well, with Colin Salmon, Dolly Wells and Jassa Ahluwalia all giving memorable turns. Hopefully everyone will be back for the second series.
