Luckily, I’ve managed to get a lot of my friends to become just as obsessed with these shows as I am. Here’s a list of 7 teen British shows that I wish everyone was watching. I've watched this show from its start, back in 2007.This show is all about teen debauchery in a way that a lot of American shows about teens just aren't.Sure, it's mostly a much raunchier version of Degrassi, but it also has great music and it is just straight up aesthetically pleasing.The entire cast changes every other season with a new crop of teens to go through ridiculous teen shenanigans, and while I liked some of them better than others--don't get me started on gen 2--this show is always going to be one of my favorites.I normally don't go for supernatural shows, but Misfits is an exception.Basically, a group of kids doing mandatory community service get struck by lightning and they get special powers.
However, I’m not gonna lie: I like a lot of things that come out of the UK.
Fresh Meat is basically about a bunch of different first year uni students who live together in really crappy housing.
Of course, because it's a comedy, ridiculousness ensues.
While this raunchy show ended a couple of years ago, it spawned a movie and an attempt to recreate the show in the states on MTV. She is just leaving a psychiatric facility after a 4 month stay and deals with hiding this secret from her friends on top of dealing with crushes and drama between her and her best friend.
Just like MTV's attempt to bring Skins to the states, the American version of The Inbetweeners didn't last long either, so do yourself a favor and find a way to watch the original. This show has made me laugh and it's made me cry, and any show that can do both of those things and also have a great 90s soundtrack is perfection OK, not technically a fictional show about teens but it's as fictional as reality TV gets.
