Six London school kids are best friends. Gorgeous Alex is academically gifted, comes from a good home, has the fine taste of a classy gay boy and proves able to date good catches, including a cop who could have been the love of his life if he hadn't lied about being a minor. Jamie Collier is the clown of the pack, a hopeless optimist, bragger and unreliable, but he means well and tries hard to please. Robert 'Rob' Conway is the most serious one, coming from a broken home with an abusive father, and has to work as a waiter in the gang's favorite pub. Finally there are three neurotic girls they hang out with: pushy Nicki Sutton, hippie rebel Suzanne 'Sooz' Lee and spoiled Sasha Williams, as well as a long list of boy- and girlfriends who come and go, although some have definite long-term potential, such as Alex's gay cop friend Dan Parker who sadly can't risk being find out legally 'raping' a willing minor.Written by

[thinking that Al and Jeff had a date]
So, you and Al hit it off last night then?
[Thinking that he's talking about their night of drinking and darts]
Yeah, his wrist action is a bit dodgy though. Needs a bit more oomph. His aim's really good. That's no use if the bloody thing keeps popping out.

one of my favorite series
it is not easy to say why. for characters, for script, for memories from high school, for the humor, adventures, interrogations, arguments, for realistic image of friends group, for the rhythm of episodes, for the crisis of Sooz, for Callum Blue as Mark, for Paul Chequer as perfect Jamie. it is a film about teenagers but it represents more than a chain of stories. its virtue - the fresh air. not sentimental cages, not lessons about life, not ambitions to be unique. only slices from every day life, in humor sauce but not far by experiences of many viewers. that is all. a nice series. or, maybe, good support for memories. as in my case.
