Kat and Bianca Straford may be sisters but all comparisons end there. Kat is an outspoken, independent feminist. Bianca is a social butterfly who wants nothing more to be popular, even if it means bowing to the whims of people like the demanding, Chastity Church. The series highlights the Stratford sisters as they experience the highs and lows of high schools, deal with their overprotective father and find love.

When I first heard that there would be a TV series based on one of my favorite films, I thought, "Why are they trying to ruin it?" I was certain that I would be disappointed but upon watching the first episode I was more than happy to admit that I was wrong. The writers take a refreshing turn with the characters while retaining some of their qualities that remain faithful to the movie. Lindsey Shaw's portrayal of Kat Stratford is definitely the best part of the show as she shines in playing both the cynical and human sides of the character. The storyline is also very enjoyable and keeps you on your toes so much that I've often been scouring the web for spoilers. Watch it and you'll find yourself wishing it were longer than half an hour.
