Funny, Quirky and not for everyone but really well done
14 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

You definitely have to watch more than one episode. I like how the teenages actually swear, how they make fun of highschool television and how out there they went with it. Even made references to Glee haha. I think anyone who is a TV Buff should definitely just try it. The acting is fairly good too. I liked it cause it made something so unoriginal (highschool TV) original in the way it was made. Yeah it has stereotypes eg. beautiful girls unpopular, uncool kids cool and what not but thats the whole point of it. Using the typical aspects and doing something different with them eg. lesbian theme, irony and swearing.
