If you like Inbetweeners, you'll love it.... If you don't, tough!
25 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Plebs is an easy going, obvious, rude comedy.

Set in Ancient Rome, many have likened it to the Inbetweeners and it's easy to see why. If you like Inbetweeners, it's no bad thing, obviously. Plebs is a total giggle-fest if you like this type of humour.

Ryan Sampson plays Grumio, the slave. Quite simply he is the scene and show stealer - great lines, dead-pan face, an innocent arrogance but clearly quite sneakily clever. Baldrick like, yes, but somehow different.

Doon Mackichan is a star, perfectly cast as the perverted, prissy but oh!, so dirty, narcissistic Boss - she rocks this part.

Truthfully, the two other main characters could be played by anybody, they just seem to read their lines. Posh, gangly, excessive face pulling... pretty much journeymen.

You'll encounter dead hands to masturbate with, herpes riddled cats, porn jugs, sex cages, orgies, swearing, saucy fruit...

Yes, it is childish - immature - infantile - puerile! But that is what it is supposed to be. And it is darned funny to boot.
