    It is such a clever idea and great entertainment to say the least
    Although, if I were one of the kids, I think i would go absolutely mental when I found out that my parents had been watching me! :P

    I only saw the last bit of one and didnt get the idea of it, so they had the young people be young people i.e drink and be loud, then their parents saying how PROUD they were of them for being that way.

    Or did I miss something? Or were they just saying they were proud as they werent causing trouble or getting too drunk?

    It was more that they were proud of them not getting raped in a backalley, tbh.

    I know some guys who are in one of the later episodes. Looks like a laugh :lol:

    This sounds cringeworthy but hilarious at the same time.

    Didn't watch it tonight, but the other night they didn't go as crazy as I would have liked them too. The girls especially were a bit boring and tame.

    Pretty uneventful and boring... What actually happened? They didn't didn't do anything crazy. It's just a standard holiday... I was expecting some crazy partying drug-induced orgies (the girls didn't even go out much). Or, I wanted something probing and interesting; it was none of the two. BBC Three always churn out these banal documentaries aimed at naive teenagers... they get watched simply because there aren't many teenage documentaries like that... poor TV all in all.

    I'd much rather hit the + channel button on my sky remote to BBC Four, and watch something about jazz, science or modern art; there are plenty of those kind of documentaries on BBC Four, and they're generally much better made.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for the occasional mind-numbing entertainment, but when a documentary like that one treads the fine line between trashy TV and insightful, current documentary it falls into that perilous trap of not being able to make its mind up; therefore, it was, unfortunately a failure.
