One of my personal favorites for summer viewing is U.K. import "The In-Betweeners," which airs Stateside on BBC America. It has some of the trying-to-fit-in spirit of "Freaks and Geeks," though the characters are old enough that, as my wife pointed out, a strong dose of "Porky's" comes into play as well. And you'll lose count trying to track how many words are bleeped out for the sensitive ears of basic cable viewers. Nevertheless, amid the crudity is a lot of charm and humor.

A new season of the series has already been in production overseas, but for now, BBC America rebroadcasts the 12 episodes that have already been made. You can catch the first two tonight at 11 and 11:30 p.m.
