As you can see, the second series owned the already massively popular first series. Plus they were talking about year 13 at the end of their series! Let's be optimistic about a third series!

I'm hoping for two more series, as they did two for first year of Sixth Form.

Every episode of the last series had more of a like definitive catch phrase or moment which was the best, but the first series had more of general "funny-ness" in each episode. I still loved it.

i just feel the second season catered to the masses so much more. there's only so many times i can hear 'clunge' or 'bus wankers' repeated over and over. it was funny in the first season but it's too much to repeat it over and over. when you resort to catchphrases in comedy you know you've lost it.

they should stick to the peepshow-esque voiceovers from will and keep it steeped in reality and comic observations with neil and jay being the 'surreal' ventures into slapstick. i cringed when will sticks a wig down his pants. that just wouldn't happen and they don't need to resort to that stupidity. the only time the 'surreal' worked on the show was the fish punching which was just incredibly well done, it seemed cathartic almost. whereas with the first season, i can safely say i've experienced a lot of those situations which is why the show felt so fucking good.
