The Inbetweeners series 3

Recommended Posts

I'm finding this season all a bit meh, it just doesn't seem as funny and as sharp as the past two seasons, even though it's now more popular than ever.

Maybe I'm easily pleased, but my favourite bit was 'Get her to put it on with her mouth.....or her arse'.

"...went in too quick, broke his knob in half"...bwahahhahahahahahahaha.

Okay, probably the best of the series, but still not that good. A few lines that were unreal on their own...but in general, it's quite painful to watch. :/

It's sort of went the way The Mighty Boosh went, but much worse. The Boosh was "funny but wacky" whereas now it puts being "wacky" above being "funny". The Inbetweeners now seems to put being "cringey" above being "funny". And whilst the 3rd series of the Boosh was generally saved by the awesome banter between Barratt and Fielding (and the odd AMAZING episode - "Crack Fox"), the banter between the cast of The Inbetweeners has really tailed off this series (because it's basically; Jay lies -> Neil believes it -> Simon twists his face -> Will makes a sarcastic quip in a girl voice -> someone tells someone else to fuck off). It's basically become a more vulgar version of BBC3's horrendous "Coming Of Age"...but somehow more painful to watch. :/ I have to stop myself fast forwarding through certain parts.

Not trying to be elitist here (I am being though), but I think part of the problem this season is that so many people watch it now. The other seasons it was a hidden gem with some good comedy, and whilst I genuinely didn't enjoy that episode, the others have been fine. Problem being that now everybody watches it, you don't even get to school/work without people mercilessly quoting it and ruining any of the punch it has. Seriously, almost every single one of my British friends has joined an Inbetweeners group on Facebook that's just a fucking quote from the show. Before the show had even finished I had eight people quoting it in their damn statuses.

I live in a massive bubble in this regard. I heard much more commotion last series. I don't have a facebook anymore, nobody I live with likes it, university has literally just restarted, my work doesn't really lead to me being in contact with many people and without wanting to sound like a prick, my mates and I tend to have enough jokes and shit ourselves so don't resort to quoting or generally talking about tele we watch (besides "Shooting Stars" :shifty:). Honestly, I've talked about The Inbetweeners to one person, and I was the one who brought it up, and it was basically; Been watching Inbetweeners? Yeah. Bit shit aint it? Yeah. So overexposure is definitely not the problem for me.

Plus, this last episode really summed it up. They really need to 'win' every once in a while. I don't necessarily mean a full on "Kevin & Perry Go Large" ending, but for kids in the 'middle ground' they are the biggest fucking losers in the world.

Agreed on the needing to win, it'd would've been brilliant if Simon had gotten laid, he could've spent the entire rest of the season shoving it in Jay's face. And I find it ahrd to believe that he's that thick or gullible to jsut assume Jay's right on the ridiculous sex advice. Definitely getting too cringey over genuinely funny for me with that episode. I've enjoyed the rest of the series thoguh, so I'm not too concerned.

They're probably saving some of the success stories for the movie. I'd assume they will, anyway. :)

Not as great as the rest, but when he kicked the door into the old woman's face, I was pissing myself. That was definitely the gem this week.

Better than last weeks for sure. I loved Jay mocking the daffodils "Oooh, I come out early and I'm all yellow". And of course "golf bat".

Yeah that wasn't great. The only part I laughed at was him kicking the door into the old lady.

I actually really enjoyed last night's episode, but that may be because a couple of the things that happened in the episode link to inside jokes with me and some of my friends. But him kicking the door into the old woman had me in stiches.

The episode where they went to Uni was good, apart from that though none have been as good as the other series. I'll still watch it and hope it improves though haha.

PS check out Him and Her on BBC3 hilarious

Last night's was the only one I've not enjoyed so far. It was just boring, which is a shame because the idea had a lot of potential.

Worst of the series so far. Just not very good. Some good moments but wasn't as consistently funny as the others.

My favourite episode of the series - really realistic, I could relate in some way to nearly every stupid thing they did! It was back on form for me, this series has been awful up to now. Which is why I find it funny that a lot of people who have praised this series are now slating this episode :lol: Ah well.

Will kicking the door in the old ladies face was definitely the best bit, I have to agree there. Oh, and pussy patrol was a particular highlight as well.

Had a real-life Inbetweeners moment in the car with my sister today, when a squirel wouldn't pussy out.

Didn't reverse back on it but it was suggested.

Did its eyes look sad?

Thought exactly the same.

Altogether it was a decent episode, but it could have been so much more, much like the last couple. A camping trip, Will having an empty, and going to Uni were all really good ideas with bags of potential that didn't really deliver. It was nice, but it could have been so much better.

Favourite part of the episode was Simon finally losing it when his car goes in the lake. And not in a 'I found it the funniest part' way. Also Simon's chat with his dad whilst hungover and throwing up talking about kiddie fiddling was great too.

I liked it. It was a little disapointing, but I have a feeling they're saving a lot of the big gags or storylines for the movie. That'll be the true finale, so I'll reserve my judgement 'till then.

There was some nice moments in this episode, but it wasn't anywhere near as good as the 1st or 4th, in my opinion.

Not a bad episode, but the puke gag totally ruined it for me.

Spot on.

The only episode I've actually remotely liked, and even then it wasn't 'that funny', but was happily watchable.

Anyone seen that "The Phone Shop" or whatever? Jesus Christ...that's absolutely fucking atrocious. So many fucking terrible sitcoms this year. I liked "Rev" and I've only seen an episode and a bit, but that "Him And Her" is alright too, but they're both quite 'understated'.

And if the annoying, unfunny fuckers on the god awful "School Of Comedy" are the future of comedy, I weep.
