You may have watched the UK version of The Inbetweeners and have made an oath on your television not to love another. But open your eyes kids because we’re telling you that you can love both series (hey, didn’t you love both UK and US versions of The Office? Yeah, we thought so). They both have the same loveable characters but with different flavours of humour. So if you haven’t watched the Pilot episode of The Inbetweeners on MUCH yet, here you go. And read this recap below too. Because they’re both here to stay (much like Simon’s declaration of his love for Carly D’Amato).
This is Will. He’s just starting public school after his parents split and his mother couldn’t afford to pay for his private school fees. He’s a bit too smart for his peers and has a general look of being above it all. But what he really needs is some friends. Enter these guys:
This is Simon and Jay. Simon is your average friend who has a deep burning love for his childhood friend, Carly D’Amato. Jay is one of those obtuse guys who keeps on bragging about all the girls he gets laid with and all the drugs he does (which, for the record, he is batting 0 for 0 on that one). Neil (who isn’t in the picture here) is a friendly guy too who doesn’t quite get the joke the first time (kinda slow on the uptake but has a heart of gold).
The guys are a bit apprehensive of letting Will into their group hang until they realize that his mom is hot. So they invite him to skip school the next day to chill.
While out doing nothing they realize they need booze and if they need booze that means that they need someone who looks old enough to buy it so they shove Will into a liquor store. He succeeds in getting two things of nasty vodka which the boys subsequently choke down. Simon gets the bright idea of professing his love for Carly by doing this:
Somehow this gets Simon an in to hang with Carly and so the boys amp him up by getting more and more drunk.
Yep. This is them. Drinking away. Kids, remember that when you drink, you tend to do stupid things.
Including puking on your crush … and her little brother.
After a successful(?) night out, Will thinks they’ve survived (and at least Simon and he are friends now).
Oh wait. Nope, that false hope of survival has been replaced by the fear that can only be instilled by parents.
And somehow though Will feels like a bad-ass with his new friends he’s still the high school pariah.
Of course, things could get worse.Tweet
