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?

I have to voice pretty much what a lot of folks are saying about this show. Actually, I'm surprised that AMAZON is allowing this to be show for kids??? AWKWARD is what I would say makes me feel in watching it, and as much as it may Appear Funny, it only deflects from the blatant disregard for morality.

SEX IS a Teen Sport in this show. And IF a parent is allowing their kids to watch this, then obviously you are allowing a TV show to teach your children lessons, that you have failed to do yourself. It's no wonder teen pregnancies are at an all time high, kids are in angst, no chance of any moral conditioning whatsoever.

I watched the first show, not exactly believing what I was seeing...and followed into the second...and still the same thing was going on? A person's character is based upon their having had sex with someone? Or the question as to whether the "girl" had it backwards...".Develop the relationship, then have sex?" Why should that have even been an issue?????

I can see how moral standards are disintegrated over the decades ... and tho' I may have thought that was something to be desired as a young teenage person - IT WAS ONLY A THOUGHT, back then. Those that did, were considered 'trashy' - or from families that didn't have any decent upbringing. (OK, who probably didn't try?)

Still - for those who knew better than to give into their raging hormones - we survived Teenhood and grew into adults who knew better.

But THIS is the state of the world as we see it - and personally...I don't get any feel good feelings about this movie, no matter how some comments may be funny. The Parents are morons, that no matter how much they might be trying to figure Parenthood out - People like this never should have had a Child.
