Fresh Meat Series 3

Can’t wait for the new series of Fresh Meat. It’s one of my top favorite British comedies. I think one of the reasons I truly love it is it’s one of the few shows that’s truly pulled off what it’s like to be in college albeit in Britain. I like to watch it and imagine what college would have been like if I’d gone in England. Clearly I should have gone to school in England instead of Fitchburg State University.

I think this my be my favorite scene from series 2:

I genuinely love all the characters, every single one. However I have very special love for Howard, who is an odd duck and a bit of an underdog. He’s also Scottish 🙂

Here are some pictures of the new series:

And of course I can’t seem to find a video of the trailer that is watchable, for me at least. I will share once I find it.

Dates

Just started watching Dates and surprise surprise we love it. However, I think we might be watching it in the wrong order even though we are watching them by episode 1, 2, 3 so I’m not sure if I just am confused by the future episodes that are coming. It’s hard to explain, I’ll know when we’re done though I guess.

One thing I really love about British shows is that they aren’t afraid to take chances because their programming isn’t entirely built around pleasing tv executives and the audience. Brits are ok with making quality tv that is different and requires the audience to be challenged. Tv in England can get away with a show that from episode to episode tells different stories with different characters. Other shows that have done this are Accused and Run. The shows don’t rely on you bonding with the characters as much as you are supposed to be sucked into each individual plot.

If you are wondering where you know some of the actors from I can help you out as I always look people up with every new show I watch.

Mia – you know from Game of Thrones as John Snow’s wife, I’ll leave at that so I don’t spoil it for anyone.

Stephen – you probably know him from The Truth About Cats & Dogs and if that was the last place you saw him, like myself, he’s aged a bit. That movie came out in 1996, I feel so old.

Erica – she’s from Fresh Meat.

Callum – Fresh Meat.

Jenny – I know her from Accused and Gavin & Stacey

Also the creator of the show is Bryan Elsley who we all know and love from Skins.

Get Your Brits Via Hulu

So we all know there are loads of British series on Netflix, but there are also plenty on hulu as well. So here are a list of some of the better ones:

Misfits

Misfits – this is the big one and it’s not on Netflix so you have to mosey on over to Hulu to watch this fantastic series.

Fresh Meat – this was just recently added to Hulu and it’s a fantastic show. There aren’t nearly enough shows about being in college and on top of that this is British!
