Storyline

Six London school kids are best friends. Gorgeous Alex is academically gifted, comes from a good home, has the fine taste of a classy gay boy and proves able to date good catches, including a cop who could have been the love of his life if he hadn't lied about being a minor. Jamie Collier is the clown of the pack, a hopeless optimist, bragger and unreliable, but he means well and tries hard to please. Robert 'Rob' Conway is the most serious one, coming from a broken home with an abusive father, and has to work as a waiter in the gang's favorite pub. Finally there are three neurotic girls they hang out with: pushy Nicki Sutton, hippie rebel Suzanne 'Sooz' Lee and spoiled Sasha Williams, as well as a long list of boy- and girlfriends who come and go, although some have definite long-term potential, such as Alex's gay cop friend Dan Parker who sadly can't risk being find out legally 'raping' a willing minor.

Great London Programme
12 April 2001 | by minnie_mieSee all my reviews

'As If' is about the lives (mostly love lives) of six 18-19 year olds living in London. Shot in a quirky but fun way, the programme shows the ups and downs of relationships between the "friends". Although a bit of an exaggeration on the London scenery (bright colours, lovely weather) it's altogether a great programme and the music is funky. It's the teen programme UK television has been waiting for.
