The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.
I postponed this for weeks thinking I might not enjoy it. I don’t enjoy watching ‘teen’ series anymore because I think they’re just whiny, but my friend gave this to me to watch (because of Nicolas Hoult) so I gave it a shot. Surprisingly, it was good. Good character sketches, good acting. It was only the unrealistic situations the characters had to deal with that I didn’t like.
I planned to see the first season only but when I was done with it, I asked my friend for her copy of the next season. We’ll see if I’d still go for more.
