TV Review: University 'inbetweeners' is sweet – in its own rude way

Jack the lad: Whitehall in Fresh Meat

John Boland

The third season of Fresh Meat (Channel 4), a 45-minute sitcom about college students in Manchester, got under way with posh twit JP (Jack Whitehall) putting up a sign on the railings that designated his lodgings as 'Pussy Haven'.

Jack, like his male flatmates, is an idiot, but then Fresh Meat comes across as a university version of The Inbetweeners, all puerile antics and knob jokes. And the women flatmates are no loftier in their aspirations.

If you're in the mood, though, and you don't worry overmuch about such things as storylines, it's often very funny – and quite sweet, too, in its own rude way.
