Editorial Reviews

Narrated in the first-person voice of Jenna's blog posts, AWKWARD. captures the humor within the struggles and experiences everyone can relate to from their formative years. The series picks up in the aftermath of the accident as she must deal with a new not-so-fun stigma, while at the same time managing the other daily drama that comes with being a teenager. From a secret relationship with a popular guy, to being undermined by a mean girl, and parents who just don't get it-Jenna's misfortune will eventually serve as the catalyst for amazing change, but it's not without some missteps and mishaps along the way.
Includes all 12 episodes, plus special features.

Format:DVD
One of the most pleasant surprises of the television season came courtesy of MTV with the clever comedy "Awkward." In truth, I didn't expect much more than a retread of typical high school cliches served up by super stylized and self-aware characters. Yes, "Awkward" does adhere to many classic elements that we've seen in countless other productions, but here they seem fresh, updated, and quite smart. "Sixteen Candles" and "Heathers" are two high school films with strong female protagonists that I really connected with many years ago. I'd be proud to say that "Awkward" sticks closely to the successful formula of the past and modernizes it for contemporary audiences. Combining the sweet awkwardness (for lack of a better word) of "Sixteen Candles" with the brutal ruthlessness of "Heathers," this show is an expert blend of black comedy, romance, and outright slapstick. And it's terrifically entertaining with savvy and quotable dialogue.

Ashley Rickards plays the central character of Jenna, a normal teen experiencing the expected angst of growing up today. Jenna is sort of an every girl character--grounded and relatable, smart without being overly precious. She's not particular popular, but has had a clandestine affair with the boy of her dreams over the summer. She receives a biting and critical letter anonymously that savages her very existence. Before she has time to process it, though, she has a mishap that everyone believes is a suicide attempt. Suddenly, Jenna is thrust into the limelight for all the wrong reasons. Season One consists of twelve episodes that show Jenna gaining in confidence as she adapts to her newfound fame, attempts to unlock the mystery of the letter, and tries to woo her secret lover into a public relationship when his best friend is also smitten with her.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are you BLEEPING kidding me? February 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While I enjoy the show, I found it highly annoying that, even on the DVD, they BLEEPED OUT even the minor cuss words. The least they could do was give viewers the OPTION of whether or not the version they watched was censored.

4.0 out of 5 stars R.J. Berger 1.5-"0 "(as opposed to 2.0) February 27, 2012
Format:DVD
I watched the entire series in one seating. Where R.J. Berger was more laugh out loud in your face funny, Awkward was more subtle in its approach, choosing to build over time. I was also annoyed by the bleeping out of words, though not enough to impact my review.

Jenna (played by Ashley Richards) is faced with numerous "teen challenges" subsequent to kicking the season off with her first sexual encounter and then having everyone think she attempted suicide, as a result of a comedy of errors, including having found a mysterious note with hard core life advice. Without totally recapping the plot, starting her sophomore year with her right arm inverted upwards in a cast and the rumors of her attempted suicide attempt, sets the tone for the year while also getting her "deflowerer" to DTR (AKA define their relationship). She has a hot (albeit enhanced) mom who had her while in her teens, 2-solid friends, an overweight cheerleader as a protagonist and another guy that really likes her (though is dating a hot blonde who made a chastity pledge).

IMHO, what makes this work is that Ashley Richards is/was only 19-20 herself (and apparently graduated HS @ 15 and is a member of Mensa).

On a personal note, having a pre-teen daughter myself, I can only hope (and prepare) that this will not be a precursor to endless worry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cast and writing June 21, 2012

It has sex, lies, puberty, betrayal; Awkward reflects the drama of the human experience and isn't that the essence of art?

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising November 3, 2013
By R. Wark
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I had heard good things about Awkward, and tried it on Prime. I can see it skewing to a (younger) MTV crowd, but found it very enjoyable. A bit soapy (but a lot of shows are), Ashley Rickards as Jenna is immensely appealing and relate able. Her problems are universal (how can I be popular/cool, which boy should I be with, why does she hate me, why is my Mom such a spazz?) and have changed little over the years. The show is also realistic about sex, treating it as natural, messy, and fraught with emotion (even if you're not "serious" yet). I've started on season two, which develops personalities nicely, sophomore year is different, after all. Some unoriginal stereotypes, the ditzy boy crazy BFF, the Asian pal with the overbearing parents, but the characters aren't to blame for that and still manage to be fun. A big thumbs up......

4.0 out of 5 stars My So Called Life updated September 21, 2013
By Jessie
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This show is MTV revisiting the success of My So Called Life, but with a new generation. Don't remember that show? Then Awkward is perfect for you. The characters are well rounded and the dialog is great, it really made me remember how wonderful and horrible high school was. The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is because there is a bunch of stuff that all together is unrealistic and I have difficulty suspending my disbelief that much.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can relate to being awkward......... October 19, 2011
Format:DVD
Loved the self comentary by the main character and love her friends comments and quick wit. The self consious but strong Jenna meets the guy of her dreams (Matty) and it turns out he is into her. But, Matty doesn't want to go public until his best friend (Jake) becomes interested in her. Matty makes good and poor decisions about his relationship with Jenna. When he realizes he is going to lose her, that's when he goes into action. But is he too late?

Jenna's quirky friends have great dialogue in high school's everyday ups and downs. I love how they deal with complicated situations without being too serious. Lots of social learning along the way.

It was funnier than I expected it to be. The show definitely had some cringe-worthy moments that live up to its title of Awkward.

Why censored all of a sudden....
I wish they would stop censoring it. It's really annoying to hear that beep or see the screen blurred because someone's giving the finger.
