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.

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.

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!

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

Accidentally got hooked during a marathon of this show on MTV2. Only caught the last two seasons though. When husband came home from work, I figured I'd turn it off, because he wouldn't be into it (I'm in my 30's and he's in his 40's, so we aren't exactly the prime demographic for the show). He got caught up in it too, because It. Is. Hilarious. Also, the pacing for each episode and each season is good. Always something happening, but issues don't stay unresolved long enough to become frustrating. Turns out my best friend loves it too. One minor complaint, but I can't be 100% sure it isn't related to our hardware/connection: some scenes run a little slow--it's a weird visual glitch that makes everything look kind of like a dream or flashback, and it's really annoying. Restarting the scene doesn't help; nothing we can think of helps. But it's not so bad as to be unwatchable, and it only lasts for one scene once every few episodes. The show itself is clever and funnier than almost any comedy on tv currently.

Whoa! Where did this come from??? Simply by accident (and thanks to Amazon Prime), I decided to watch the Pilot. I was hooked within the first minute. And I'm in the 40+ category. This is some great stuff. The acting is genuine and exact. You are drawn into the show and you don't even know it. It's just a lot of fun to watch and the main character is perfect for the role. There are five seasons to watch and I'm on the Pilot of the first season. I have a lot of watching to do and thanks to PRIME, it will be fun. Amazon takes the cake on this one (and MTV). THANKS!

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.
