Trivia

Even though the central characters, of which she is one, are all 15-year old, Amber Lancaster (Jenny) was actually 29 when filming began - beating actresses of other 15-year old characters such as, for example, Charisma Carpenter at the beginning of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (age 27), and matching Gabrielle Carteris' age at the start of Beverly Hills, 90210 in 1990.

Sometimes Hilarious, Sometimes Creepy
17 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

R.J. Berger (Paul Iacono) is a teenage loser who is picked on but when a jock pull down his pants, a surprise is revealed. While Paul has the geeky look, he looks much older than 15.

Miles Jenner (Jareb Dauplaise) is RJ's best friend. He's pretty good as the big fat friend. Lily Miran (Kara Taitz) has a longterm crush on RJ. She does a funny creepy aggressive friend. Jenny Swanson (Amber Lancaster) is the cheerleader crush of RJ. She's kinda stiff.

This is an MTV show. There are a lot of sexually inappropriate story lines. Some of which are hilarious, while others are cringe worthy.... really really creepy.

It lasted 2 seasons or 24 episodes. There was a noticeable drop in the 2nd season, and I really wouldn't want a 3rd season.
