Editorial Reviews

Roles become reversed and the lines between the popular and those who aren't become blurred as Brooke, Sam, Nicole, Mary Cherry, and the hilariously over-the-top chemistry teacher, Bobbi Glass, return for the second season of POPULAR. When a star football player arrives at Kennedy High, chaos ensues within the school's social pecking order. Backstabbing, lies, betrayal, and blackmail become the order of the day in the search for the Holy Grail of high school: popularity. Now you can be a part of the POPULAR crowd, the show that blends outrageous humor with relevant issues facing high school students. Experience all 21 episodes of the show's second and final season and relive your high school days again (and again and again...).

I watched POPULAR when I was in high school, back in 2000-2001. It holds a special place in my heart and watching it really brings back memories. It was really one of the finest shows the WB ever produced. I'm a few years older now, but it's funny because life doesn't really change much. We are all still looking for popularity, love, friendship, family strength, confidence, and success. These were the major themes in the show, and rarely does a show present such intelligent and mature views of relationships. It was much, much more than a teen soap opera. It was a commentary on society in general, and our need to belong.

I really related to the characters in POPULAR. Sure, real life in high school during this time was never as glamorous or as fabulous as presented in this show--but I think we all wished it was, and POPULAR gave us dreams. I wasn't the only person who watched the show--a few of my friends also did, and we were all so surprised by its cancellation. We all secretly hoped it would return for another season, and waited, but that never happened.

I think that was because we were all so attached to the characters--and each of the actors was a star in their own right. Carly Pope branched off and did a very fine film called "Trapped in a Purple Haze," in which she had a very tragic role. Sara Rue, who played Carmen, did an incredible movie called "Gypsy 83." Thinking back, 2000-2001 was a great time for movies. Just think how many wonderful movies came out then, such as Moulin Rouge or Pay it Forward or AI. There were many pop culture references made in POPULAR, from vintage stars like Joan Crawford and Lauren Bacall to frequent references to Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna. The character Nicole Julian was basically a combination of Sharon Stone and Madonna.

We all remember our days in high school. The moments that built our characters and the friends that defined who we were. So what crowd were you "in"? What clique established you? These questions might strike an emotional note with you, but not with the students of Kennedy High. Sam, Brooke, Josh, Sugar Daddy and the rest of the gang are back in the second season of the hit WB show, Popular.

The show centers around the life of two polar opposite high school girls: Sam, the outcast and Brooke, the teen queen. The world through their eyes is drastically different but they share one common demoninator. Their family. In the first season of the groundbreaking series, Brooke and Sam saw their single parents move in together and their worlds collide inside and outside of their high school walls. Their respected cliques began to blend and the barriers between what was cool and who was popular slowly fell apart. In the second, and final season, of the series the lead heroines begin to take on their battles not against, but standing next to each other.

The season, which relies heavily on its comedic side, introduces new characters (such as Equisite Woo, who has an acute and entertaining relationship with Popular favorite Mary Cherry) and delves into the darker side of the returning ones. The dynamic of the show is once again its satire on the cliche high school experience. The majority of the plots revolve around outlandish events that could, most obviously, never happen but always prove to be both enlightening and hilarious.

Throughout the 21 episodes, we are also introduced to the more dramatic side of the situations and characters we love. One has a life-threatening sickness and another will do anything to get revenge on the ones who have done her wrong.

First, to E. Babcock, Harrison did choose Brooke, she ran off because Sam had started to cry. At tvtome.com/Popular/ , on the last page of the episode guide, there is all the information about season three that had been written prior to WB pulling the plug (as provided by series creator/writer/producer Ryan Murphy). I think it is difficult to compare season one to season two as season one was under much tighter constrictions for wackiness, but season two went all out (even though it definitely had more dramatic drama). I think by the end of season two, these characters have been fleshed out enough that a season three would have been extremely sour.

Gripes about the DVD:

Only two commentaries...one with Bryce, Leslie (Bibb), and Chris...the second one with just Bryce and Leslie, and Bryce leaves about twenty minutes into it. I cannot believe Ryan Murphy didn't lend his own thought to a commentary or two. Not to mention, the commentaries aren't even on big plot-filled episodes (the Leslie-only one is on "The Brain Game"...the lowest rated episode of first-run Popular ever). I mean, I would have loved a commentary on "Fag" and on "Promblems". Also, this DVD had much better cases (to hold the disks in place), yet in mine, two of the sleeves were with prongs, but one was like the first season ones.

The future:

I would love to see these sets rereleased...
