Storyline

"Awkward" is about the specific incidents in our formative years that define us -sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst. The show centers around fifteen-year-old Jenna Hamilton, who, like many, feels invisible to her peers and desperately wants to find her place--which is hard to do in a day and age where fitting in means standing out. Unfortunately, Jenna's visibility comes on the heels of an accident that gives her a not-so-fun stigma. And while the stigma of her accident could be the curse of her life, Jenna's determined to make it her life's blessing. Written by Lauren Iungerich

Trivia

The "carefrontation" letter that Jenna receives and is so frequently mentioned on the show reads as follows: Jenna,

As you are now, you could disappear and no one would notice. Below is a list of suggestions that you should seriously consider:

Number 1: Stop being a p****

Number 2: Your instincts suck. Second guess them.

Number 3: The only people more pathetic than you are your friends. Drop the dead weight.

Number 4: When you're pretty, you're happy. And clearly you're not happy.

Number 5: Pull your head out of your a** and stand out.

Number 6: Nobody likes the pitiful. Stop being such a drag.

Number 7: You have to be cruel to be kind.

Number 8: Make amends.

Great show!
26 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, technically, I should be too old for this show. I'm at the point in my life when I should be over the shows about high school kids. And I am. Except for this show. I'm in my 20s (still a kid, I know, but certainly far removed from a sophomore in high school). This show is witty. It has me laughing out loud in every episode. I am usually patient about new episodes of my favorite shows. With this show, however, I yell at my TV with the episode ends. I wish it was an hour-long. I have never been more excited to hear about a show being renewed for another season. But I digress...

Jenna is quirky and smart. Yes, she's awkward, but in the most lovable of ways. She has impeccable taste in men, and I couldn't be more proud of the growth of her character in this show. I love watching ALL these characters grow. They are actually maturing, and I can't wait to see where the writers take them. Most of the characters are relatable. (We all knew "that girl" or "that guy" in high school). And they're lovable too. Or, you know, "love to hate"- every good show has one of those.

Anyway, give it a chance. It won't disappoint. Even if you're well past high school (like this quarter century old gal (plus or minus a few years...)).
