It's the end of term and Will, Simon, Jay and Neil have the task of organising the School Prom. Change, though, can be a good thing. There's so much at stake and of course they do their best to make a mess of it. It pulls off the awesome trick of being cool whilst proudly boasting central characters who aren't cool. Similarly, the magic of Neil now an inconsequential, vaguely airhead-ish hippy played by Mark L. They're not always nice, even. The audience for the remake is clearly the uninitiated viewer.
He previously went to a private school, but since his dad walked out on his mum he's had to downgrade to the local comprehensive. A couple of mates with similar senses of humour got me into this during the second series and I have gone back and unearthed the first series. . Is the prom good enough to get Will the acceptance he deserves? This is hilarious because it represents a comedic image of how tragic most of our lives were as teenagers. It's Will's first day at his new sixth form college.
British comedy is alive and well in the cult shadows! Who voted that in, the association for the promotion of attention deficit disorder? Young has so far been lost in translation. And if his life already wasn't tough enough, Will hastily makes enemies out of his head of sixth form and the school psycho. Accusations of the remake's sentimentality are somewhat misfounded. In an effort to fit in, Will attaches himself to what he considers an average group of boys and tags along with them as they attempt to get served in a pub for the very first time. Okay, he was the only person who wanted the job, but he's still taking it seriously, and has roped Simon, Jay and Neil in to help set it up. Check this out and laugh your nuts off, whilst guiltily hiding the fact that you were either as lovable yet pathetic as the heroes or as cool, snide and, deep-down, insecure as the bullies. Not yet, at any rate.
Further details It's the end of term and Will has been voted the chairman of the Christmas prom committee. Its first episode — an amalgam of the first two instalments of the original — has imported its script almost wholesale, sliding the sarcasm and gross-out sex slang of four horny home counties sixth formers into the mouths of four horny Florida teens. Funny, yes, but also a bit unsettling. . . . .
