Beautifully shot and set to a dreamy soundtrack composed by Blur's Graham Coxon, you'll be transported back to your teenage years and left yearning for a second series.Ruby Naldrett, The National Student, 16th January 2018
The housemates are on glorious form this week as various long-running storylines build nicely. It's one of the joys of Fresh Meat that it doesn't only do zinging comedy; it also makes us buy into series-long plotlines such as Josie's slow, sad disintegration (which takes a turn for the worse tonight: "She's on the last train to Smackville" is Vod's assessment).
Meanwhile, Oregon still hasn't levelled with Dylan about her previous affair with his dad, leading to a hilariously awkward lunch. But it's Oregon's musical talents that set the episode alight.
Heather enters Kingsley for a gig night where he can debut his prog dirge The Implodium Implodes (in fact written, the credits tell us, by Graham Coxon from Blur!) and Oregon offers to join him as vocalist. It turns out the girl can sing.David Butcher, Radio Times, 20th November 2012
