On the surface, this TV series is the story of a girl who deals with an unrequited high school crush on a boy from the other side of the academic track. Underneath, it's an uproarious comedy that's smart, slapstick, and deep all at once. The acting won't win any Academy Awards, but the direction and timing of the episodes is impeccable. This type of romantic comedy seems have become lost in mainstream USA TV viewing. It took over 1 year to film this series, and it shows in the quality and depth of the writing and direction. My Latino wife almost bust her sides watching these episodes - this is really great viewing for the entire family, no matter your cultural background.
