Surviving high school can seem like a nearly impossible task to anyone, but if you’re the new kid, you might as well scale Everest instead. Will Mackenzie certainly has his work cut out for him in MTV’s new scripted comedy series, “The Inbetweeners,” and if the trailer is any indication, his transition into an entirely different realm of student life could leave him scarred. Still, there’s always hope–even in the darkest places–and since we (barely) made it through the experience ourselves (and are SO adult now), we’ve decided to give Will a hand.
As movies and TV love a good starting-from-scratch story, we racked our brains for tales of how former onscreen new kids navigated big moves, the great switch from public to private education or even exiling at the demands of a witch’s council (the usual). Check out what Will could learn from five green prototypes, and make sure to offer your own tips if you’ve ever had to adjust to new places and faces.
