Still, we've got rid of Kris Marshall, I suppose.
The flat. What student
owns and is renting rooms in a fucking flat like that?! It's ridiculous! What the hell possessed the ad men in question to let that through?

It's like Skins Goes To Uni - bollocks.
And not to mention the obvious geek. In fact, each one of them fits a particular stereotype so well - the nerdy gamer geek (gamers are ALL socialy unpopular geeks), the pretty hipster girl he fancies but will never fancy him back because she only goes out with dumn guys who wear deck shoes and angular haircuts and pretend to like poetry to impress her (which works), and the better-looking guy who is popular, doesn't work too hard and gets good grades without trying and so atracts all the girls -including the geek's hipster girl.
Wait and see. It's so obvious how this will pan out, do they honestly think the 18-25 group they are aiming at are that stupid?
