Last watched early 2015
Due to their late applications for University housing, Vod, Oregon, Josie, Kingsley, JP and Howard have to live off campus in a share-house. The series traverses what you would expect it to in this sort of University set up; financial troubles, alcohol and drug use, pressure relating to study and grades, difficulty in relationships and sex.
It’s a very watchable, fairly fluffy comedy that effectively traverses some darker aspects of the limbo years of University.
Pros: A decent depiction of a person of colour, well rounded women characters, self aware depictions of (the upper) class and gentle punching-up,
Cons: iffy jokes about consent, some ‘no homo’ plot lines (that are fairly self-aware)
Genre: British comedy
Approach carefully if: you struggle with infidelity plot lines, dying parents, drug abuse
