The reformed runaway and addict returns to high school as a freshman, where she tries to fit in and act hip with girls 1/3 her age.

Jerri's father Guy was killed off in the second season when creators ran out of ideas for the running gag of Guy never moving on camera. They described Guy as going from the easiest character to write for to the hardest one. See more »

Amy Sederis is brilliant as Jerri Blank amid a cast of other excellent comic writer/actors, including Paul Dinello and "The Daily Show's" Stephen Colbert. It had me consistently on the floor with it's inventiveness, audacity and vicious wit (i.e., the prayer at the Families of Alcoholics meeting: "Dear God, please give me the strength to blame those who did this to me, to accuse those who didn't, and the wisdom to know the difference.") It's long since disappeared from Comedy Central, but DVDs of Seasons One and Two are out, and a movie version by the same team is on its way for 2005. BTW, whoever suggested that the writers were "white supremists," I sincerely hope you are joking. It's called satire, in the vein of Swift and Voltaire.
