Hillside follows the students of fictional Hillside School and dealt with a variety of issues including dating, divorce, alcohol abuse, and friendship. The show played heavily into stereotypes, including two characters named Dylan and Chris, who wore leather jackets to show off their toughness, but which could not completely disguise their inner selves.

Gerald is as wrong as Mitch
2 November 2000 | by (Whitehorse, Yukon) – See all my reviews

Fifteen was THE premier teen angst show of our generation! I don't know what Gerald was smoking, but Fifteen's candid look at the problems facing today's youth was enlightening and original. It made it possible for Saved by the Bell to deal with pot smoking and Kids Incorporated to eventually tackle teen pregnancy!! Without this show, we would still be watching shows where all they do is play practical jokes on Ms. Bliss. In fact, even 90210 didn't tackle these serious issues until Fifteen forged the path ahead of them. On a personal note, when I had to go to detox when I was 16, the show's episodes on Matt's drinking problems really spoke to me and helped me through that tough time. I realized my friends were just trying to help me. Thank you, Fifteen! I unfortunately have never gotten over my intense crush on Ashley though. As I am getting married later this month, I hope that my passion for her will not be a hindrance in my marriage.
