Sugar: Ugh. Now are you sure this is a proper champagne? 'Cause it is dry as fuck.
Kim: It's supposed to be. It's prized for its dryness. It's an acquired taste.
Sugar: Nah, they probably got some sugar for this.
Kim: You can't put sugar in champagne!

EXCELLENT! finally a true portrayal of English teens.
16 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this series is amazing!! It is truly one of the best shows i have ever seen. the characters are relateable and funny. sugar and Kim are both beautiful and not stereo typed at all. They both convey emotions realistically and are extremely talented in there own way. the shows main brilliance is the fact that is deals with English teen culture in a true(slightly OTT but it is television)way, as a teenager i found most of the story lines very realteable and saw many of the characters in my friends. The only episode i found unrealistic was the last episode... but it is also oddly my favourite. Although it is over the top is develops the characters and Lenora Crichlow is amazing as sugar in that episode. shocking, different, emotional, realistic, relateable, strong, sexual. all words i would use to describe sugar rush one of my favourite shows on T.V.
