PICK WEEK OF THE WED­NES­DAY

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

IF you set your new com­edy in a stu­dent house share, you’re ask­ing for it to be com­pared to The Young Ones. And there’s not many TV shows that can live up to that pres­sure.

But there are two very good rea­sons why new Chan­nel 4 com­edy drama Fresh Meat might just make it.

The first is it’s writ­ten by the blokes who gave us Peep Show, and the sec­ond is it stars the very fit Emma Rigby (right). It’s pretty bloody good too.

A group of stu­dents move in to­gether in a grotty stu­dent house and go on to get drunk to­gether, have sex to­gether, throw up to­gether and gen­er­ally just in­dulge in the gen­eral f*ck­wit­tery that comes from liv­ing away from home for the first time.

Like Peep Show, it holds a mir­ror up to ev­ery day sit­u­a­tions in all their ex­cru­ci­at­ing and embarrassing de­tail.

And, like Peep Show, it’ll have you piss­ing pants.
