DVD: The Inbetweeners Series 1-2, For retail, 4DVD

Booze, birds and the time of their lives – that’s just what the four lads in E4’s real-world answer to Skins aren’t having.

Jaw droppingly discomfiting and achingly truthful, the (all-too-brief) highs and (all-too-prolonged) lows of teen life are plumbed for comedy value in this excellent schoolbased show as briefcase-wielding nerd Will and his classmates relentlessly mock each other’s humiliations.

In other words, Schadenfreude of the highest order.
