After being in therapy for his father's unexpected suicide, otherwise model teenager Johnny moves with his flirtatious ma to Palm Springs, hoping for a new start. That proves confusing as Jonny strikes up friendship with local youths, and discovers at least some of them may be involved in the suicide of Eddie, the previous occupant of his new room. Key among them is slick Cliff, a great friend and/or dangerous adversary. And their mothers' love-lives further complicate the equation. Written by KGF Vissers

My favorite show: Needs some appreciation!
19 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

I recently discovered Hidden Palms and I instantly have become enthralled. Don't be fooled by the cheesy romance and sometimes cringey acting, because beneath the guise of a cliche teen drama show is a beautifully written and engaging plot that instantly hooks you. Kevin Williamson is quite an esteemed writer, and his effort shows here. Honestly, I don't really think the show needs any more episodes. It is a great story within 8 episodes, that didn't have to suffer through extensive and tiresome sequels or subsequent seasons like many other CW shows. (The newer 90210 series is a good example) This show deserves some recognition however, for the story and the characters are more 3-dimensional rather than cliche. Michael Cassidy's performance as Cliff is pure gold, and he is easily the most interesting character in the show. Valerie Cruz's performance as Maria Nolan and Tessa Thompson's performance as Nikki Barnes are also worth noting. Overall, a great show with perfect pacing, plot, characters, and light humor. While some scenes such as the drag queen show are at times cringe to watch, it is a great show that deserves some appreciation. It also needs to find an outlet or platform to be found on. Your only options to watch the show are either on Youtube (often taken down due to copyright infringement) or a foreign dvd release that may not even work with standard US dvd players. I understand that it was once on netflix, so I am urging the CW to find a good place to allow people to view it. Possibly on CW seed or the CW app for mobile devices?
