About This Quiz

Art, even popular art like television programming, is a mirror we hold up to ourselves. In its distortions and exaggerations, we see ourselves from a new perspective, allowing introspection by proxy, seeing ourselves in a story, and examining ourselves in the context of our actions in that story. The nature of sitcom is that each character should be so distinct from the others that upon reading a line of dialog, any audience member should be able to say which character would have read that line. The more a show accomplishes this feat, the more we feel we "are" one of the cast.

Ever since "The Inbetweeners" hit the airwaves in 2008, we have suffered with the titular group, seen them grow, and regress, and suffer, and grow again. "The Inbetweeners" is distinct among sitcoms in that its characters are both incredibly different from each other, and recognizable as people we might know. Their struggles may seem absurd, their mistakes may be epic, but they all feel very real and call to mind similar stories we have about times with our friends. The relatability of the characters, protagonists, and otherwise, is one of the reasons the show went on to make several feature films after being canceled. Which character are you?
