Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on August 30, 2012

The Inbetweeners is a British show recently remade in America, which resulted in some outrage on behalf of the fans of the original. That made me want to check out the original, and I don’t get it. It’s a pretty generic “edgy” high school comedy. A kid’s parents get divorced and they can no longer afford to send him to a fancy private school, so he has to go to regular school, and he struggles to fit in. Fake IDs are used, alcohol is purchased, girls are lusted after, and nothing particularly interesting happens. I gave it two episodes just to be sure, and didn’t come across any characters, jokes, or plot threads that made me want to watch any more.
