Though there's more sexual innuendo than necessary--the show would actually provide a better fit for the CW network--sharp writing and a charismatic cast make for a mostly successful movie-to-TV transition. Bonus features include bloopers, behind-the-scenes featurettes, the pilot of Make It or Break It, and audio commentaries with the cast and crew, including creator Carter Covington and producer Gil Junger, who directed the original film. --Kathleen C.

The film which is based on Shakespeare's play "The Taming of the Shrew" has a slightly different storyline with the TV series version. In the TV series of "10 Things I Hate About You", The Stratford family has just moved to a new city and their father Walter (played by Larry Miller) who is a doctor is overprotective about his two daughters Kat (an activist who is very serious about school) and Bianca (a teenager who wants to be popular and is not as serious about school). Bianca will only be able to date guys when Kat dates guys but Kat doesn't seem interested in dating anyone but focusing on school and getting into college.
During the first day of school, Kat (Lindsey Shaw) tries to park her car but the top high school cheerleader Chastity (Dana Davis) tries to beat her to it. Chastity who is rich tends to get her way but Kat doesn't let Chastity get the parking space and crashes into her car and tears off her fender without a care in the world. Needless to say, Kat is not on Chastity's good list. Kat learns from the principal that Chastity is the daughter of the school board president and everyone in school makes her happy. This infuriates Kat.Read more ›
This show is clever, has a good cast with chemistry, and pays homage to both the Shakespearean play and the film. Even without the special features, it's worth it to own because the rewatch-ability is high.
Sadly, as it says, this is only volume one, and only includes half of the season's episodes, and you have to purchase them separately. I wish they would combine them in a box set (but keep the price relatively the same) but I fear the show will be forgotten.
Just do yourself a favor and get season two along with this purchase.
I was pleasantly surprised. Although it starts out with the basic premise of the movie (Scary guy meets scary girl, so lil' sister can go out with the model). However, it focuses more on their first meetings and developes an almost alternate story.
I really liked the fact that the man who played the girls' dad in the movie returned for this. His dry worried sense of humor really helped make this show a success.
The only thing that would have made this better, is if they had included more episodes i.e. waited to release this until they had more episodes. Episodes are only 20-27 min. long and there are only ten of them. You just get started and you want it to go on.
