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.

Funny show and should continue
3 March 2012 | by yengstaSee all my reviews

This is one of the funniest shows that I have every watched. Everything about it is funny, but the story writer to this TV show kind of sucks. I'm not going to spoil it for you but the show kind of went out of its purpose for viewers in the second season. They should at least make the kid RJ still chase his dream, or if not slowly go back to his dream. Even though he stopped chasing his dream, the show still makes me curious of the next episode.

I am going to definitely miss this show. This is a show that every teen would love because it is straight forward to a high school teens life. I guarantee that if this show was on non cable channel like ABC, Fox, or CBS, it would be one of the most famous shows because every teen will like it.
