I am with Spider - not the greatest episode but still very amusing.

What I am begining to find is that its all the supporting cast that are the ones involved in the best scenes.

Last week, it was the kidney kid and Mr Gilbert. this week, it was Simons dad and wills mum (who is sooooo hot!)


The supporting cast have always been amazing though, it's just you notice it more when the central characters are so much less funny.

Jay's Dad is amazing! "You definetely take after your Mother in the cock size department"

Last nights was good up until the will overdose. His bit on the stage was a contrivance too far and just not funny! Other than that it was very amusing and i did enjoy the requisite gross out moment!

Have never seen anyone react like that to weed, all seemed a bit ridiculous.

Did like the conversation with the drug dealer though, also the conversation with the bully after he ripped open the teabag.

I didnt like what a nasty prick Simon seemed to be in the last ep. He was more cutting than usual.

I think the pacing in the new series is different as well. It seems to move very quickly. Perhaps too quickly.

I still love the show though and stand by it. Just a bit disappointed.

The writers could continue the show, if they really wanted to, but I guess they just don't and are saying the drift to uni for some characters and failure to get in for others makes continuation impossible.

Unless they don't have the imagination to develop their scenario, and simply set future series' in between uni terms, with the same characters reuniting.

Then you have the possibility of a series where various characters are expanding their horizons (and some not) between series' and during a series, the characters fall back into old ways and old types of scrapes. Some who aren't moving on and need the old stuff to feel okay making the uni characters feel responsibility to keep old friends feeling okay.

Then you've got the 'tension' and 'conflict' necessary to uinderpin the series, AND the underlying pathos that flows beneath most comedy ready and waiting to come to the surface to be the big emotional send off, when a few years down the line the curtain finally comes down.

So, it can go on, if the will is there. And by setting it in between term times, there is even a natural 'arriving back in town' and 'getting ready to leave again' beginning and ending structure to the series, with a time limit each time on what people are going to do/get into, all already in place.

I am really enjoying the series but not being blown away by it yet.

Some good moments last night.

Quite honestly i thought the giant was fit , think it would have added more to the show if he had started seeing her for a few episodes, with him liking her and his mates taking the piss out of him.

the series is stuttering along though i thought that episode was more similar to the previous series.

Doesn't really make sense though as Gary Glitter has never been accused of molesting boys has he?

Yes, that's exactly what I was implying, he's completely absolved on the grounds of being a one gender offender

It just seems like a wasted opportunity to slide in a Catholic priest joke. Now they are always funny

- Jay = Rik Mayall from Bottom
- Neil = Trigger/Adrian from Only Fools and Horses/Bottom
- Will = Any geek from an American movie
- Simon = f*ck knows

love the one liners buts thats about it!! "Frothing at the gash", "bumder" etc

Dunno about the Skins comparison - one of the recurring themes is that the lads do very little partying or getting wasted. And there's no attempt whatsoever to make them look cool.

I think this season has been a bit sub-par so far, but Monday's episode was the most consistently amusing yet in my opinion. I think my problem with this series is that the characters seem to have become slight caricatures of themselves. The first 2 series were quite heavily influenced by the creators real-life experiences, now it seems like they are running out of those and having to come up with completely original stories and losing the characters along the way.

The moment with Will mocking Jay for crying and everyone telling him that it was not a cool thing to say, really struck true to life. I like those little moments.

I agree.

Really liked how Will was trying to justify it ("after everything he says?!?")

Also liked Wills speech with Soimon as he was being thrown out ("its all about the blowjobs with you")

I'm new to the Inbetweeners. I only started watching it on 4oD after the first episode of series 3 aired. I watched the first two series in about 4 days and I can safely say that this series is just as good as the previous ones. Maybe not quite as good but still up there. There's certainly been no discernible drop in quality or change in direction. All three series could be watched back-to-back and you wouldn't notice the joins. I think maybe the people who think this series is disappointing are disappointed because they've been waiting  for it and the anticipation has built and they expected to be blown away.

Best episode of the series by a country mile.

I am sure I used to play those drinking games at uni 15 years ago! No pointing - 2 fingers!

I did feel it a little unbelievable at times though - would simon really have asked Jay for advice. And secondly, at that age, would he really have had problems getting it up so quickly.

Having said that, the comedy mined out of the situation was awesome.

Yep, definately the best episode this season so far.

I spent the best part of the episode hiding behind a cushion, it's just so embarassing to watch sometimes.

Simon's 'dirty talk' was the real highlight for me, even if his character seems to be going beyond awkward into full blown pyscho on occasion.

I think this is the only time in my life I had to look away from the screen in embarrassment, during the condom scene.  I laughed because I looked away, only to see my housemate intently studying a cushion. 

It was a good episode despite the ropey set up of them all going along.
