YESSSss okay this show is called NOWHERE BOYS, the asian boy = andrew lau played by Joel Lok (twitter/instagram) (he was born in 1994 so it’s FINE) (that is what i keep telling myself)
THE PLOT is that four MISMATCHED TEENS (goth, science boy, skateboarder, sports kid) get lost in the woods on a school trip and when they make it back they discover that their families don’t remember them and they apparently never existed. They hole up together in a wooden shack, scavenge for food, get into various kinds of teenage-boy trouble, and try to work out what’s going on - mass hysteria? wormholes? magic?? aliens??? UNFORTUNATELY FOR ME, I LOVE IT
FROM LEFT TO RIGHT WE HAVE:
SAM: the skateboarder. eats whole chickens. super popular & cool in their own world but not in the new one
FELIX: the goth. listens to/writes dreadful metal. into MAGIC!
JAKE: champion athlete with deadbeat dad. most angst!
ANDY: science nerd & Bear Grylls obsessive. THE CHARMINGEST.
(warning that the show does fall into stereotyping a bit with andy’s family - obviously he’s the science nerd character, plus his grandmother runs a chinese restaurant & speaks fairly broken english)
it is a kids show, so it’s a series of 13 x 25 minute episodes; it aired last year in australia and is currently halfway through in the UK. there is another series in the works so this is nOT THE END im afraid
