Fresh Meat

Series 2 - Episode 8

Radio Times
Review by:
David Butcher

I won’t hear a word against this series of Fresh Meat. It has blended rich performances with fizzing scripts so that even the odd slow patch (that episode at JP’s country house?) has parts to treasure. It has, in short, been a blast, and it ends tonight with a suitably nuts swansong.

The house-share is splitting apart. JP is fighting to prevent it, buying giant TVs and hot tubs, but it’s a losing battle. Howard is still lovelorn over Sabine in his own strange way, and Vod is flogging literary titbits to Shales. But it’s Oregon who is in the worst mess (Dylan still doesn’t know about her and his dad), a mess that explodes brilliantly over a literary garden party.

About this programme

8/8. The end of the academic year is fast approaching and the housemates face some big decisions. With her secret now out, Josie must consider her future, and Kingsley accidentally moves into a one-bedroom flat with Heather. Meanwhile, Sabine's news shocks Howard, Oregon's relationship with Dylan comes to a head and Vod resolves to turn her life around. Last in the series.
