    A brilliant episode, lots of ridiculous moments, but always containing that element of truth that makes the show so funny. In particular, Simon driving his car for the first time and getting stuck at a junction would probably ring true for a lot people. Also, with other teenage shows, when the action moves to a different location it's often to a more glamorous venue for a few days of drinking and debauchery - but organising a day trip to a theme park is much more of reality for the average sixth former. Maybe not the carrying a car door round Thorpe Park though… Overall, Will has some classic lines that make this a very funny episode.moreless

    I love this show, the characters are absolutely great and the acting is very good. I thought the story was fun and the whole car and road trip story was really funny. I could really feel Simons frustration trying to be careful in traffic with his mates pushing him to go faster / overtake other cars etc. That would drive me mad, and the guilt about what happened and the anxiety about telling your parents. The car itself though was great, the look on Simons face when he saw it, haha. And the comment he makes to his dad just before stepping into the car... fabulous!moreless
