The BBC seemed to think the same as everyone else. That half of the cast of The Inbetweeners need a job other than insurance voiceovers for one......or signing on for the other

"Jay" and "Simon" return as 80's version of their roles of their CH4 show except their roles are selling double glazing in the era of buying your council house. That's slightly exaggerating it...but not by much.

However, I simply don't care. Together, they star with Jude Law impersonator Ed Westwick as a team of not entire fictitious double glazing salesman, if Rouge Traders is anything to go buy.

Vulgar, rude, sweary, and a lead role from Ed (breaking the 4th wall), who ultimately isn't as clever as he thinks makes for what I think is a fantastic show. Growing up with 80's music helps. A brilliant soundtrack adds a Life On Mars feel to it.

Not sure about terrestrial broadcasting, but the whole lot is on the BBC iPlayer.

Yep finished watching this a couple of days ago and found it very enjoyable. The awards episode was particularly funny I thought, loved the awkwardness towards the end.

Plus Sam is very fit :)

I'd perform that act Vincent said others would do at that awards ceremony! Well not quite but close.

Not sure how this will play out without Vincent. TBO I wasn’t sure we’d ever get a series 2. Hopefully Jay and Simon can carry keep it going.

Ah not been keeping up on Ed’s news. when James Buckley was on Sunday Brunch they showed a clip of their new boss and not a word was mentioned about Ed so assumed he wasn’t in it.

It seems they stopped filming White Gold series 2 midway.

When the charges against Westwick were dropped, they resumed filming.

It looks like the producers stuck by him.

Quite right too. You should’nt be able to ruin somebody’s career on just an accusation. Different entirely if he’s been proven guilty of something.

All done one. I really enjoyed it despite the two inbetweeners being unable to play anything other than inbetweeners!

Yeah I think they all have huge issues with that. Trouble is even if they play a different roll, your just waiting for them to burst into they old character and offend anyone in hearing distance. At least I am. I don’t want to, I want them to move on, but until they go complete off the beaten track and even just look older for God’s sake, then it’s going to be hard for the
