    ★★★★ Watched 08 Sep, 2014

    watching The Inbetweeners chaperones me backwards through time to a state of pubescent britishness that can only be rivaled by drinking tesco value cider at a bus stop and calling random passersbys "dickeds", it's a feeling of perfectly nuanced disgruntled indifference from a country suffering from an eternal autumn of intricate is-it-gonna-rain-or-not cloud systems and rampant small-town syndrome alcoholism. though the series definitely benefits from the small scale lets-ditch-school-and-wonder-why-we-ditched-school plots as opposed to the typical needlessly intensified hollywood our-lives-are-on-the-line-in-an-unknown-wacky-country ones…

    I always manage to get incredibly anxious and wary over the prospect of rewatching the films that I love like children who went off to war.
