he's the british michael cera, he's now typecast to play awkward teenage/young lads for the next 5 years.

I thought Joe Thomas's character was a little to like his Inbetweeners character.

Really? because I've met so many people like that at university.

That's the point, it's a bit too unrealistically obvious and contrived.
Anyways I watched both episodes this afternoon and thought it was good but not great. It might become great as the series goes on, however currently it's better than the last few series of Skins but worse than Skins series 1+2 and The Inbetweeners.
This being said they have nailed some aspects of Uni, the rah character is perfect, Oregon is exactly like so many people when they first start uni, the whole awkwardness of the first few days is definitely true. The insulting a girl you like + turning away when she looks back, yup definitely remember that from weird relationships as a teenager. The strange hygienically challenged layabout, yup. About the only stereotype they don't have yet is a hipster who hates everything mainstream and fails to realise that what they like has become mainstream.
The only thing that came across as really cliche was the over possessive aggressive boyfriend that hadn't been previously mentioned. That's been used so many times on tv.
I'd probably give it a B- at the moment but it's got potential.
