    The audience for this show is way to specific. The characters and the plot are flat, unoriginal and boring. And it is getting worse every episode. Starting with a promising pilot it turned into classical "MTV" very quickly.

    This show is really stupid and boring I wish they wouldn't have any more seasons of this. The plot and dialogue are horrible and the characters and boring and very non memorable. This show has no real plot and should have no real place on tv.

    A series about a high-school girl that's neither maudlin nor alarming nor conceived with intent to preach or to shock. It's further distinguished by its focus on entirely recognizable teenage pains, as endured by an entirely recognizable teenager, Jenna. Its other distinction: strong echoes of an older kind of storytelling, the sort whose characters grow and acquire depth.

    Not only are high school horrors pretty universal, even if the specifics change, but I can find a way to fit "Awkward" into a tradition of hyper-literal high school comedies like "Pretty in Pink" or "Heathers" or "Mean Girls" or "Juno" or "The In-Betweeners" (if your taste runs to British TV). It's not as good as any of those, but it's not as bad as "Jawbreaker," which is in the same tradition.

    The life of an everyday American high school girl has rarely been rendered with such sly and funny precision as it is in MTV's aptly named Awkward.
