Very Entertaining and Very Real
26 January 2000 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The aptly titled "Get Real" is just that. A very true reality of the average family today. Okay, maybe not 100% average, but close enough.

When I first started watching mid-season, I was extremely drawn to the relationship between siblings in this show. They get along amazingly, but in a strangely believable way, and every time I watch this show I find myself longing for the same relationship with my own sister. The Green kids mix just the right amount of friendship with fighting, and I love the writers for displaying their rapport with one another so well.

For those of you who have never seen "Get Real", I find it to be very similar to "My So-Called Life", but with many more points of view since this is very much an ensemble cast -- there is truly not any one or two true "main" characters, there's just the whole group of them. And unlike so many other television shows today, "Get Real" has not succumbed to including the token gay best friend or the teen pregnancy that we are all so used to. When they introduce issues into their shows, they do it without calling attention to them. It is already apparent that Kenny's newfound deaf girlfriend will simply be Kenny's girlfriend by the next episode. The writers don't dwell on these things like so many other shows feel the need to do.

All I can say is, this show deserves a long run. Anyone can find themselves in these characters, and I hope that the writing stays at this level for a very long time.
