TV Show: Fresh Meat

28 Nov

Don’t lie, you’ve done it too. That lazy morning or afternoon in which you sit in front of the TV and watch a whole series of something. This weekend I had my morning of lying in bed with coffee. Muffins and Fresh Meat.

I had seen the first two episodes of Fresh Meat and I did really like it but this weekend after watching the rest of it I can wholeheartedly say that it is brilliant. The humour is pitch perfect and the drama is just right.

Fresh Meat follows a group of university students at Manchester in their first year. In particular, we see a group of people sharing a house with a real mix of characters.

Stand up comedian Jack Whitehall stars in his acting debut as the posh, Stowe leaves JP. Not only is the writing for this character superb, it’s acted very well by Whitehall who is really believable. Joe Thomas (The Inbetweeners) is in his next big role and he’s good but it’s almost as if he’s playing the same character. Imagine Simon going to university, which can’t be a bad character. Kimberly Nixon plays Josie as the sweet girl, and Nixon delivers lines so confidently that you’ll laugh and react as necessary. Oregon is favourite character. She’s the one who is anxious to appear cool but is really quite sweet.

Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain are most famous for their show Peep Show, which I liked but I really like this one. This is so well-written and just generally well created. Their’s a great energy that surges throughout this show and is the perfect ‘dramedy’. It’s really, really funny and will keep you entertained. For those that live in the UK, go on to http://www.4od.com to watch the whole series. I love this show!

      Haha, yeah it is. To match the show! I really like this one and am annoyed that I have to wait for September 2012 for a new series.
