Simon Bird and Joe Thomas, who of course star in The Inbetweeners, have revealed that the success of the show, and its spin-off movie, is a “double-edged sword” since they now fear anything else they do may not be as successful.
And specifically, Simon and Joe were referring to their new roles in ‘Chickens’, a comedy they co-wrote with Jonny Sweet, the pilot episode of which airs this Friday.
Speaking to What’s On TV, Simon said, “The Inbetweeners has opened a lot of doors for us.
“But at the same time, it is a double-edged sword because [Chickens] is obviously going to be judged in relation to the Inbetweeners – which is unfortunate because we want it to be judged on its own merits.” Read more & comment »

However, the paper quotes a reviewer for Greek national paper Patris as saying, “The filming did not take place in Greece but in Mallorca and other Spanish locations, but the film no doubt constitutes advertising for our country.
“It presents Greece as an ideal place for summer holidays.” Read more & comment »
