Watch The Inbetweeners

A remake of its British namesake, The Inbetweeners U.S. series is a coming-of-age comedy created by Brad Copeland and airing on MTV. It has twelve episodes in its inaugural season with no announcement of a second season. In the pilot episode former private school student and geeky overachiever Will McKenzie, portrayed by Joey Pollari, is transferred to a new high school due to bullying at his old. He resolves that things will be different here only to immediately find himself a subject of ridicule among his peers. Reluctantly, at the prompting of a school administrator, he makes friends with a trio of school pseudo misfits love sick Simon Cooper (Bubba Lewis), perverted liar Jay Cartwright (Zack Pearlman), and incredibly dense Neil Sutherland (Mark L. Young).

The boys become closer friends as they attempt desperate schemes and get into strange misadventures to earn popularity at their high school and get the attention of the girls they're in love with. They manage to engage in the worst of teenaged hi-jinks but rarely with the results they were trying for. From under aged drinking gone bad to a failed night of clubbing, from horrible first car to ruined attempts at romance the group continually fails at the rites of adolescence that others seem to practice so flawlessly. Recurring plot elements in the series include Will's run-ins with weird and sarcastic vice principal Mr. Gilbert (Brett Gelman), Simon's crush since childhood on neighbor Carli D'Amato (Alex Frnka), and Will's new friends' lust for his attractive mother. Other story lines cover Simon's ugly new car, Jay's constant over exaggerations and sex obsession, Will's quest to find a girlfriend, and questions of Neil's father's sexuality.

Despite their good intentions and delusions that they're not as nerdy as everyone believes, the boys often find themselves in hilarious and humiliating situations as they survive together through the awkward phase between childhood and maturity. The friends learn that even in the worst of times they'll always have each other.
