Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyHasLotsOfSex: Pretty much every single character is incredibly sexually active and few, if any, act otherwise.


Added DiffLines:

* GraduationForEveryone: Averted; at the finale, Josie still has a year left for her degree, which, sadly, leaves her the only one left behind as [[TheFellowshipHasEnded everyone else moves on to the next stage of their lives.]] [[spoiler:Not that it's an instant happy ending for all: Howard received the highest marks, with most of the other group receiving realistic mediocre or poor marks due to mediocre academic habits.]]


Added DiffLines:

* AManIsNotAVirgin: When Kingsley admits to Josie that he's actually a virgin, she's shocked and tries to suggest ways for him to fix it, like it's a mistake. Though her surprise is at least somewhat understandable as [[TruthInTelevision the average age of losing virginity in the UK is about 15.]]

Howard lands an internship that requires him living in London, Vod and Oregon are off to teach in Laos, and JP and Kingsley are planning on living together, with the former planning on using his connections to get employment. Only Josie is left behind and alone to finish her degree, [[BittersweetEnding a prospect she isn't looking forward to.]]]]

* OfficialCouple: Though the series teases [[WillTheyOrWontThey Josie and Kingsley]] from the first episode, [[spoiler:but they end up not working out. Ultimately the OfficialCouple is Josie and JP, though the latter's graduation means that they'll be forced to try a long-distance relationship, with a dubious outlook.]]



** [[spoiler: In Series 3, they finally end up together... but Kingsley hasn't technically broken up with Heather, who is staying with family in Hong Kong for an indeterminate amount of time.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The group (sans Josie) ends their academic careers with varying degrees of success, though it's underscored by overall mediocrity, save for Howard. Still, they end on a (mostly) good note, save for Josie, who closes the series with a sweep of the now-empty house as she's clearly saddened by the prospect of a year alone as she finishes her degree.]]

* {{Jerkass}}: [[spoiler:Chris, Vod's mum is a ''big'' one. She nicknames Vod "Milly" (for millstone, which she sees Vod as), is TheAlcoholic, attempts to get off with JP even though he wants no part of it, tells Kingsley and Josie their relationship is doomed, and wishes Vod was aborted, voicing this out loud within earshot of Vod. Vod's attempt to call her out on it ("You're a shit mother." - she ''really'' is) results in Chris flying into a drunken rage and wrecking half the house. Who can blame Vod for burning everything that reminds her of her mum or her childhood afterwards?]]
