To provide perspective from the other side. As an American, I had never heard of The Inbetweeners until it came to MTV. So I saw the US version first and then sought out the UK version to compare.
Having said that, the US version and UK version are pretty much identical at this point. So while it's not bad, its just a complete waste of time and money. At first, I was pretty annoyed that they would be so completely unoriginal and just re-gift us an entire series, but the more I think about it, it makes sense. This isn't a show that would be successful on Showtime or HBO, due to their older demographics. And the original UK version would need to be edited to within an inch of its life on MTV (thanks, you religious, southern prudes). So it makes more sense now. With that said, I'll continue on with the UK version and give the US one a chance. If it doesn't find its own legs fast though, I'm done.
