Lily's Profile >

Smart, sympathetic and pretty much adorable from the get-go. Lots of laughs, but the use of Waltz #2 by Elliott Smith at the end near breaks your heart. What an opener

Julia Raeside The Guardian

Assured and has wonderfully sympathetic characters

Jane Simon Daily Mirror

Very funny. But what really holds the thing together is an underlying sympathy

Tom Sutcliffe The Independent

Played it refreshingly straight, with a confident cast led by Inbetweener Joe Thomas staying just the right side of stereotype as cocky Kingsley.


The most painful comedy about social awkwardness that our gulping, stammering land has yet produced

Michael Deacon The Telegraph

Well-cast, frequently funny and painfully accurate

Gabriel Tate Time Out

Sweet at heart, it should be applauded for generally eschewing the puerility, moralising and self-conscious "edge" which usually blights this genre

Paul Whitelaw The Scotsman

Fresh Meat adds drama to the comedy, with well-drawn characters... and a brilliant script... plenty of laughs

Joe Clay The Times

The script is sharp, the lead character Kingsley a sympathetic figure... and the Gap Yah public schoolboy is rather amusing

Daily Telegraph

We used to dream throughout the Thatcher years – dream I tell you – of a sitcom as sharp as Fresh Meat to nail our neuroses.

Stuart Jefferies The Guardian
