Review: Beaver Falls Series 2

It wasn't a good comedy or drama, but the three lead actors displayed enough charismatic to pull you through the show's unoriginal elements and a very confused tone. But did it really need to come back?

Beaver Falls actor Sam Robertson wants Corrie return

The Scottish actor has revealed that he would like to return to Corrie to show how much his acting has improved.

STV, 6th August 2012

Returning for a second series, this bawdy E4 comedy aims for "Inbetweeners Goes To Camp", but crucially lacks that programme's well-drawn characters and willingness to see more lewd elements through to extreme conclusions. Lothario-with-a-heart-of-gold Flynn and hapless pair Barry and A-Rab return to work at Beaver Falls for a second summer and immediately resume their attempts to philander their way through the encampment's female employees. Finn, though, makes a miscalculation in attempting to seduce the daughter of the oppressive camp leader. Far less risque than the way it so dearly wants to be perceived.

Gwilym Mumford, The Guardian, 5th August 2012

A return for the culture-clash comedy in which three hapless and hopeless Brits play havoc as counsellors at an elite American summer camp. There's a hint of The Inbetweeners here and it's often very funny when it isn't trying to be too coarse. In tonight's opener, the boys find the camp has a new owner and a fellow counsellor, PJ (Scarlett Alice Johnson), catches the eye of Flynn (Sam Robertson).

Simon Horsford, The Telegraph, 4th August 2012

The mix of sarky Brits and American girls - and jocks - in this culture clash comedy is a strange one. But as the series concludes, the archly named Beaver Falls has had its moments as the three personable British graduates, Flynn (Samuel Robertson) and the particularly likeable A-Rab (Arsher Ali) and Barry (John Dagleish), complete their season at the American summer camp. The premise also touches on the idea of Brits getting one over on the Yanks (and standing up for the little, or in this case, the fat guys) and that's something we can all cheer for.

Beaver Falls may be TV's American Pie but is that good?

Beaver Falls' third episode proved that the comedy is beginning to fall foul of the crude, gross-out stereotypes typical of so many American series.

Review: Beaver Falls (E4)

Beaver Falls is a pleasant enough way to spend a summer evening infront of the box, but it lets itself down for only providing modest chuckles and embracing so many clichés (the blonde bully's dating the fittest girl around, the bureaucratic boss has an unfaithful man-eating wife, fat nerds are given painful wedgies).

Dan Owen, Dan's Media Digest, 4th August 2011

Silly, lewd and juvenile - but at least it's got heart

Beaver Falls saw A-Rab, Barry and Flynn deal with mainly cannabis and women-focussed dilemmas, but it's hard not to like this gently amusing series.

Rachel Tarley, Metro, 4th August 2011

E4's abysmal ­Beaver Falls was compared to The ­Inbetweeners... presum­ably by someone who has never seen The Inbetweeners.

Leaving no cliché unturned, sex-mad UK students frolic with fat kids at a US summer camp. Pathetic.

Kevin O'Sullivan, The Mirror, 31st July 2011

You could get some idea of the level of humour from the title Beaver Falls, E4's new gross-out comedy drama about three gormless Brits who have blagged jobs as counsellors at an elite summer camp in California. Sure enough, it was a little bit Inbetweeners, a little bit Skins, even a little bit Glee. Here were babes and jocks and a hard-assed boss and his hot missus. Could our gormless trio - Flynn, Barry and A-Rab (yes, he is Asian) - square the circle of getting laid and/or stoned without getting fired or beaten up or grassed up by the angry, smart-mouthed fat kids sharing their hut and expecting to be entertained?

I'd hate to say my favourite bit was Barry finding fresh ejaculate in one of his flip-flops, so I'll go for the scene where A-Rab was trying to teach his American brats cricket. "How long does this game go on for?" moaned one.

"About five days."

How I laughed.
