I stumbled across a trailer I thought to have been a fake titled “The Inbetweeners (2012 TV Series) – Series Trailer”. Now I originally thought this would have been a piss take for the UK version of the Inbetweeners but actually this trailer is showing a new upcoming series of the Inbetweeners US version. Like Skins US the show looks as though it’s following the same storyline as the British version but set out a little differently. Skins US followed our British Skins season one but ended up not being renewed because there simply wasn’t enough viewers and not a lot of people liked the show. It just goes to show that the original British version wins.
By watching this trailer I’m not 100% satisfied about what they are doing with this US version. The characters themselves look like idiots and it will take a long time to get used to. I’m a massive fan of the British version, I have all three seasons on DVD alongside with the movie, but watching an American version I don’t think I can relate to these new characters and form a new connection with an American version. Don’t get me wrong I love American television shows but when they remake our British shows into their hands, it just never seems to go down very well. I will be giving this American version a try but I will probably just not continue to watch the series after the first episode. I have to say that I did love the first season of Skins US and I was quite shocked to see it not get renewed because I myself, personally believe that the show would shine if it had a second series. This show will premiere August 20th of this month on MTV, so I will have to check it out. Below is the trailer so be sure to check it out.
