One of the best shows on TV right now
7 April 2013 | by QuoidSee all my reviews

This show is fantastic through and through. I was really pleased when BBC decided to air it in the states and so glad I stumbled across it.

Like many, Joe Thomas drew me to this show. Liked him in the inbetweeners and figured I would in this and I was certainly correct.

This show hits it on the head on every single level. Firstly the production value is super high in this show. The music/audio is great; awesome theme song and equally good incidental music throughout the episodes. The cinematography set and production design is also superb. Long story short; phenomenal production.

This leads us to the actors. Once again, freakin amazing. I was worried Joe Thomas would play the same role as he did in the inbetweeners but the character is unique enough to realize it is not a clone of his old character. He is quite funny in this.

The other actors in the show also do an incredible job. Kimberley Nixon is my new favorite actress. She absolutely kills it in the series (as does her co stars). I really can't speak highly enough about the acting in the show, just give it a watch and see.

The writing is also amazing. Even though I'm an American I can recall so many similar personalities from my time in college here in the states. The posh rich guy, the eccentric girl who dresses completely over the top (Oregon) and the reclusive nerdy guy (mr. Howard maccullum) to name a few.

So in closing I will say that this show is absolutely brilliant in every level. As an American writing this I think I am proof positive it has much international appeal. It is one of the best shows on TV right now and in my opinion the best damn comedy I've seen in years.

It's like a lunar eclipse. Every few years or so everything lines up to create this remarkable event. That event is Fresh Meat.
