Mark and Jez are a couple of twenty-something roommates who have nothing in common - except for the fact that their lives are anything but normal. Mayhem ensues as the pair strive to cope with day-to-day life.
The exploits of four friends, who are socially only marginally above what one of them calls "the freaks", are presented as they grow from their late teen years into adults and as they go on their quest, usually unsuccessfully, for such grown up things as beer and sex. Simon Cooper, Jay Cartwright and Neil Sutherland have been friends for some time. Insecure Simon's main quest in life is to get long time friend, Carli D'Amato, to be his girlfriend.

The four main characters are in their mid-to-late teens, but when the first episode was broadcast in May 2008, the actors playing them varied in age from 20 (James Buckley) to 24 years of age (Joe Thomas). See more »

The Inbetweeners for me is a quality, witty, and funny situation comedy, that tackles teenager's issues ( such as relationships, friendships, sexuality, alcohol and drug abuse) in a very comic way. It's well scripted, and the choice of actors is good as well. The misfortunes that keep happening to the main four characters(Will, Jay, Simon and Neil) entertain us- the audience, and keep us laughing pretty much throughout the whole programme. Every new commissioning of the programme series is well accepted of the viewers. I think that a reason for this is that each one of us has once been a teenager, and engages themselves with the lives of these characters.
