Very relatable
10 August 2020 | by briancham1994See all my reviews

I watched this TV show when I was in high school in New Zealand and it was like a mirror to everything that was happening! It was so authentic rather than a glossy Hollywood production. There were people like these characters in all our school and that made it even funnier. They are all outrageous but are not one-dimensional as they are explored and developed throughout the series.
