Darkly comic coming-of-age story that follows 16 year old Bethan as she deals with the anxieties and insecurities of teenage life, along with the stark reality of a home life that is far removed from what she projects to her friends.
Its very difficult to do teen-orientated shows well. Inexperienced actors/actresses often either seem wooden or they don't have the experience to get into the depth of the character. Plots often are adapted to suite the needs of the inexperienced cast, which deteriorates from the narrative. This is why Get Even is very good, is because despite it being a teen show, it has none of the above failings.
Not only is it written in a very believable manner, the casting is magnificent. The character interactions are very true to form and seem natural, although sometimes a little cliche. The pace is perfect and keeps you watching.
For this genre, UK television is miles ahead of anything out of the US. This is a teen drama done right, and lots of networks can learn from this.
