Will, Simon, Jay and Neil aren't losers. They aren't popular either. Not yet. They exist somewhere in the middle. Just four friends plotting a course through the awkward and often humiliating journey of being a teenager. Finding strength in their shared shortcomings... mostly by mocking each other. Because that's what friends are for.
Based on the hit British series, The Inbetweeners is a show about the days you never forget. An authentic peek at a group of teenagers charging into adulthood the way we all do... by taking one step forward and three steps back.

UK version is good though Aug 04, 2013
By Shane Simpson
This Americanized series is lame and the actors are not very funny, especially Simon and Will. The original UK version is funny as hell though.

Copy of the UK program down to the sequence of the scripts! Sep 05, 2012
By Joseph Kohout Jr.
"The Art of War"
A surprising number of US programs emanate from the UK (I.E. Shameless, The Office, Being Human and 3's Company). Sometimes the basic framework of the UK series is "borrowed" and reinvented in the US and other times the US Series is a complete carbon copy of the UK series. The US version of The Inbetweeners is most definitely the latter. In fact I can't remember seeing a US version of a UK series where not only was the plot identical, but the same scripts were utilized in an exact sequence. I have to believe that the R&D budget for the US Inbetweeners was essentially nil!
If you watched the UK series, there will be nothing new here and depending on your memory, you can even forecast the major comedic moments. My other main issue is one that seems to be common to programs offered on MTV. Namely, the use of a bleep button. I suppose that I understand that basic cable in the US does not offer the same latitude as regular programming in the UK, though why repeatedly make use of dialogue that includes words that have to be bleeped out?
While personally, I found the production value to be better on the UK version, for those that have not viewed, The Inbetweeners US is worth a watch, as there are generally a few funny scenes per episode.

Lost in translation Sep 14, 2013
Same scripts but just highlights the difference between british and US humour. Watch the UK version as it is way funnier.
MTV censors intellect and crassness that makes this show work. Nov 19, 2013
By Sam F. Miller
Terrible. The UK version is hilarious. They keep the story lines from the UK version but dumb them down and censor both the intellect and crassness that makes show entertaining and more than a teeny bopper sitcom. Also the American Simon and Will are not terrible, but Jay and Neil are so bad it completely ruins the show. Especially Jay. In the UK version he's grubby but likeable. In the US version the actor that plays Jay is so terrible on so many levels. This show couldn't have translated if it was brought to HBO or Showtime. MTV is pretty much terrible. They tried to make something better but had to compromise for their audience, which kills the show.
The Inbetweeners Aug 24, 2013
By R. D. McDermott
Hope it comes back for a second season. Had seen the British version, and the scripts were almost identical. Amusing how they didn't have to Americanize it that much.
