There's a cost to higher learning, and it's not just monetary. But dignity is overrated anyway on Hulu's new British comedy Fresh Meat, which debuts Sunday.
In the premiere, six Manchester Medlock University students who missed out on living in the dorms find themselves thrown together in a shared house off-campus.

"I've just got used to wearing trousers of the mind," he explains sheepishly.
