Welcome to Weemawee High School, where being in the right clique can make one's years in school memorable. Enter Patty Greene and Lauren Hutchinson, two freshman who tried hard to be accepted into these cliques. The only problem was they stood out like sore thumbs. Patty was brainy and wore glasses, and Lauren was overweight and had braces. Thankfully, two other "square pegs" accepted them. They came in the form of aspiring comedian Marshall Blechtman and New Wave rocker Johnny Ulasewicz (aka Johnny Slash). Still, Lauren and Patty wanted to be in with the cool kids who came in the form of Jennifer DeNuccio, a wanna-be Valley Girl; LaDonna Fredericks, the hippest black girl in Weemawee High; Jennifer's boyfriend Vinnie Pasetta, a John Travolta carbon copy; and Muffy Tepperman, a Jewish princess who joined anything from JV pep squad to science fair organizer.

You know the feeling. The awkwardness, the tender times, the silly moments of being fourteen and not quite sure you've got what it takes to be popular. That's what Square Pegs is all about. Join Patty and Lauren in the sights, sounds and songs of growing up in the 80's.
This show is great! I bought the DVD of the show about a few months ago and it has seldom left my DVD player since. I really could watch every episode about ten times in a row, and I have a giant crush on Johnny. He's just so great. In fact, every single lead character, with the exception of Marshall, because he sucks, is fantastic! The Devo episode is particularly great because they sing my favorite song of theirs, and the episode basically focuses around Muffy, who is probably my favorite character. This show is fantastic, and if you really think it's terrible, I just don't understand you. Plus, it has inspired me to bring my Waitresses tape out of retirement.
