The Inbetweeners follows the misadventures of four suburban teenagers intent on having a good time, bunking off school, and trying to get into the underwear of their much savvier female peers.
Teenage pregnancy, gun crime and drug abuse are just tabloid headlines, the real stories are about trying to get served in pubs, passing your driving test or doing work experience.
It’s about growing up, going to school and all these embarrassing moments you are either experiencing right now or that you recall quite vividly for the rest of your life.
