Summary: "Awkward" is about the specific incidents in our formative years that define us -sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst. The show centers around fifteen-year-old Jenna Hamilton, who, like many, feels invisible to her peers and desperately wants to find her place--which is hard to do in a day and age where fitting in means standing out. Unfortunately, Jenna's visibility comes on the heels of an accident that gives her a not-so-fun stigma. And while the stigma of her accident could be the curse of her life, Jenna's determined to make it her life's blessing.
The show can occasionally be funny, even poignant at times. Despite its one-note theme, it has its moments. The characters, stereotypical as they are, are sharply drawn and competently realized. But if Jenna walked up to me and said, "So, honestly, Do you think Awkward. is a good show? You know, for teens to watch?" I'd have to, not wanting to hurt her feelings too much, hem and haw and buy for time, pondering exactly how I'd tell her the honest, painful truth.
