Buckley's (AKA Ladbrokes/Jay/The Cockney Bloighter One) career is apparently doing well enough to keep him in decent straits. He shows up a bunch in Rooster Teeth (a Video Game Internet Show for anyone sane and normal) videos and talks about stuff he's doing, so he seems to be alright. He has a sizeable internet following too.

James Buckley's also been on a (absolutely terrible) show since September 2018 on NBC called I Feel Bad, which I must reiterate once again, is god awful, but still, its a prime time US sitcom!



I bet he gets payed more than he got for the Inbetweeners

The dopey one was in that BBC Jeremy Thorpe drama and played a completely different character - and he was pretty good. I think I've seen him in something else, too. He's going to be OK.

And the posh short one has been in loads of stuff, and he's always great.

So - you know, don't be daft. You might be a bunch of mean-spirited cunts here but wishing these lads hard times doesn't translate to anything much, you know. They're probably doing OK.

Yeah I thought he was good in that Jeremy Thorpe thing. He popped up in a rather shit Agatha Christie 'The Truth of Murder' dramatisation of when she went missing, playing another sort of spiv character but was again quite good.

So good for him.

I pretty much hated the second film, too. The ending of the first was a really nice way to leave it. But it made so much money that a sequel pretty much had to happen, even if there was no great creative idea behind it

It was a very strange film. Weird decisions like Simon's girlfriend becoming a stalking, cheating nightmare, even though she was perfectly reasonable and lovely in the first film. Jay's dream. The swimming pool scene, which felt like it'd belong better in the Kevin and Perry film. And did

It was prize plops, and I pretend it doesn't exist

Yeah, that was a bit bizarre. But having said that, I have heard of relationships that started off well and ended up being a nightmare. A mate of mine had one in which his girlfriend basically tried to cut him off from almost everyone, including the person who had introduced them. Her cousin.

For some reason she thought I was ok but it got to the situation where half the times we had arranged to meet he had to cancel at short notice because she had decided that he wasn't allowed to go out. So it can happen.

Anyway, I still really enjoyed the film though. So there.

What annoyed me about that is that Simon has always been shown to be the needy, full-on, stalker type - and they went back to that in The Festival, which was basically a film about Simon graduating uni. But for some reason in The Inbetweeners 2 they decided to make him a normal blahddy lad's lad, bantering about how awful his girlfriend is.

Joe Thomas is really funny as that pathetic needy character, too. My biggest laugh in The Festival was him on stage at graduation trying to talk to Hannah Tointon.

Also there's a bit in The Inbetweeners 2 where Jay tells some men that Simon is a paedophile, so they try to drown him, which, haha? Apart from that and the pool bit I love it though.

It's not good is it. Very interesting that it has been heavily advertised on 4 but with no indication that it would be an awkward Jimmy Carr fronted affair. Looks like they haven't even been bothered to disguise the 8 out of 10 cats studio.

I'd say it deserves a lot better, but I never got the sense that the 4 of them are particularly good friends (fwends!! Hahahaha!!) so the whole reunion angle never actually appealed. A documentary or talking heads thing like they had for Father Ted or that recent Partridge one would have been my preference. Jimmy Carr is so shit in this sort of thing, he's in proper "going through the motions corporate appearance" mode.

Christ, that reminds me that i havent seen the partridge chat show yet.

It baffles me why Morris fans would like this inbetweeners rubbish

I think there was enough of his original character in it though. The needy stalker type can soon find out that actually having a girlfriend isn't all they thought it was. Er...so I've heard.

Is Joe Thomas actually playing Simon in The Festival? Or is the character just so similar that you sort of pretend it is Simon?

He's not, it is a separate thing where he's a different character - but I always call him Simon in it because the film really feels like it started as an Inbetweeners 3, picking up with Simon graduating.

He's pretty good in White Gold. But he is playing the same character again

I could see a third film working if it was based around one of them getting married. Imagine the hilarious hi-jinks the now 45 year old lads would get up to!

No. He plays the same character every fucking time, basically ( which you could argue was all that Rik Mayall and Adrian Edmonson ever did, to be fair ).

Feel bad for Buckley there.

Just realised though, is the Inbetweeners carrying on the legacy of the lad humour of the early 90s?

As much as I liked the first series of The Inbetweeners, and as much as it definitely mocks lad culture; like the pub landlord Al Murray character i'd hazard a guess that the main audience for it are the people and culture it subtly mocks. Although maybe replace lad with bants for the modern age.

Maybe i'm thinking too much about a daft sitcom with four weird kids. I don't know.

Anyway, seems it was Jimmy Carr being a cunt so nae bother James.

That's unlistenable. They could at least have turned the mics on before recording it.

I liked him really ripping into LAD Bible. Seems like a cool guy, just a very sensitive soul. Too hard on himself, too easy on Jimmy Carr.

Thought the same. JC does have a massive bank of comebacks but he's never struck me as being overly quick off-the-cuff or a naturally funny person.

Like James Buckley a lot after seeing that. I think deep down I always suspected he as my favourite of the four.

Was pleased how shit he thought the Simon-in-a-suitcase bit was.
