Any Fresh Meat fans out there?

DH and I LOVE this. Is scarily brilliantly accurate. Watched the first episode whilst expressing last year, now can watch the second series with wine and fingers crossed sleeping babies and it's even better.

No-one else?

This is a cracking episode so far grin

Howling at the arm.
Cringing at the careers fair. I was not a grown up at 19, sooo many wasted opportunites...

I just hope Josie doesn't lose Vod's job for her....

Love it. 'You've eaten 65 pillow chocolates in the last 2 days!' grin

wasn't sure about the josie mucking around on the job storyline given she's been portrayed as a flossing/anti bacterial mouthwash kind of girl. vod and the oil under the dress was excellent!

I haven't watched the second series yet but Vod is just fabulous. Remember her presentation on Salman Rushdie last series? Genius.

Love the way she calls Kingsley pussy man. She has all the best lines.

DP did industrial design at Uni. JPs phonerazor is not a million miles away from DP's first year project, the "Superzoomer" - a set of clippers-come-hairdryer that sucked instead of blowed. The similarities are astounding, including the oh so refined insulation tape... This evening, he's thoroughly enjoyed me resurrecting one of my favourite past times from the early days of our relationship, that being Let's All Take The Piss Out Of The Superzoomer.

LMAO Vivipru.

Who was the actor that played the BP man who fancied Vod? Looked familiar but I couldn't place him.

ViviPru Wed 24-Oct-12 10:12:53

Yes I thought that too, Tunip. Vod looked AMAZING. I feel a girl crush coming on.....

MrsBucketxx Wed 24-Oct-12 10:20:39

i didnt know her name was violet either, its been a really funny series, the sperm ice cubes had me howling.

pictish Wed 24-Oct-12 10:28:21

Oh Vod is a creature to behold!

Was the BP man in The Office?

MrsMymble Thu 25-Oct-12 20:35:06

Vod is my new girl crush grin

The BP man was Dr Fogarty in Hunderby and he's on some jobsite advert too (can't remember which one)

DH and I love it. Series one was great but this one is even better.

ViviPru Thu 25-Oct-12 20:43:21

It's like the actress that plays Vod said when she was interviewed on Nemone, everyone has come together at the top of their game, the set designers, the writers, the actors, it's one of those doesn't-come-along-very-often triumphs....

TunipTheHollowVegemalLantern Tue 30-Oct-12 22:03:20

Just starting....

nipersvest Wed 31-Oct-12 14:45:28

omg! howard and sabine, jumanji grin

TunipTheHollowVegemalLantern Wed 31-Oct-12 14:47:59

I used to have a flatmate like Sabine.
She changed GPs because the one near our college didn't give out free condoms. I said 'Is it really worth it, they're not that expensive!' and she said completely deadpan 'But you see, I use a lot.'

maxmillie Wed 31-Oct-12 22:29:15

love JP and Vod, one of the few programs that makes me laugh out loud at the moment.

ViviPru Wed 31-Oct-12 22:58:36

Tunip grin

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 08-Nov-12 20:15:47

Just watched this week's episode - sooo brilliant. I love Vod so much - what was the song playing when her and the handyman got down to it?

SleepyLittleSunshineGirl Thu 15-Nov-12 11:37:01

I have been crying with laughter at this week's episode. The bit with Dan Dan the Geology man telling Howard he'd got him a Shell placement, as JP and Kingsley arsed around in the background made me do a little wee!

TheSmallPrint Thu 15-Nov-12 13:41:26

I love Fresh Meat but have to watch it away from DH. He just doesn't get programmes like this which is a bit unfortunate as I love them!

getagoldtoof Thu 15-Nov-12 22:35:20

My DH doesn't get it either. Weird - it is so funny!

maxmillie Fri 16-Nov-12 00:16:07

How!! It's the first properly hilarious British show I've seen in ages!!

Also that other one with JP in, bad education.

JP is just so sharply observed, it's hilarious, in a bitter sweet way like the best comedies.
