However, both the girls and their two cliques slowly grow together and become an unlikely group of friends with both typical and not so typical high school and young adult problems. Brooke McQueen is the captain of Glamazons, the school's cheerleading squad. She's considered smart, beautiful and perfect.

Trivia

Creator Ryan Murphy said in the episode commentaries (and other interviews) that Harrison did choose Brooke over Sam, and she fled the scene because Sam was so hurt. Also, Sam would have become a lesbian in season 3, and Brooke would wake up a brunette after her coma. Also, Josh would get a gambling problem, leading Lily to move in with Josh, and Nicole would walk after lying about Mike sexually assaulting her, leading her to drink and drive and accidentally hit Brooke.

Quotes

Samantha 'Sam' McPherson: I miss you so much Dad. I ache over it. I don't like the person I've become. I know you know I'm in a henious living situation now. In my heart I know you want my mom to be happy and she's trying so hard but I keep screwing it up. I feel like I never had the chance to say good-bye to you.

The Popular Vs The Unpopular
28 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Popular is a really great teen sitcom about the popular and unpopular kids at Kennedy High. A mix and match of a cast here too with Leslie Bibb playing the most popular girl and the likes of Carly Pope and Tamara Mello playing the unpopular girls. I'm not to keen on that Ms. Glass though. The show always keeps you interested all the time. So, catch it if you can. It's really good.
