This series portrays life at Rawley Summer Academy, an elite school in Connecticut where boys with a bright Ivy League future spend the summer industriously in classes and rowing training on the lake. It's mainly told from the viewpoint of Will Krudski, a gifted, genuinely inquisitive student and future writer, who feels guilty having cheated at the entry exams. His roommate, Scout Calhoun, is a school legacy who makes an effort to become friendly with some underprivileged local kids and falls in love with the daughter of a garage owner who turns out to be family. Most of his classmates are golden spoon boys, but still have their problems, among each-other, at home and sometimes with the locals. Actually Jacqueline 'Jake' Pratt is a girl pretending to be a boy as the only way to get in, causing great confusion for Hamilton, the school dean's son, who begins to fall for her. Written by
I may not be in your generation, but i can definitely sympathize. I watched that show religiously every week all summer long and fell in love with Ian Somerhalder who I had only seen in magazines before. I was absolutely crushed when in the fall the WB did not continue the show, and doubly so when the following summer they did not resume it.
I do not think you are crazy for watching it, it was a very well done show with well-casted characters; I just think The WB was extremely dumb to not have continued it.
I mean, 'Buffy' was originally just a "fill-in" show not supposed to go more than 12 episodes or so, and now here it is just NOW ending after like 7 or 8 seasons. I'll never understand television producers and their reasoning.
