Fresh Meat Series 3 Episode 1 (Channel 4) Review

They’re back! After pretty much a full year away, the Fresh Meat gang are back for their second year in Manchester, and there’s change afoot. Josie has stayed true to her promise of attending Southampton University, leaving room for a brand new resident in the newly Christened “Pussy Haven”. As you may remember from series two’s finale, JP has bought the student house and has big plans for how to use it. Enter a hot tub party; in Manchester; in October.

We begin with an over the top declaration of how much sex JP, Kingsley and Howard (maybe not Howard) are going to get now that they’re second years, and this entry into the show is a familiar one for any fans that have stuck with it for three years. We always start with JP being overconfident, brash and abusing his friendships but, inevitably, he’s humanised over the course of the eight episodes. This recycled arc hasn’t become familiar enough to irritate quite yet – but this might be the year.
