These MTV tv Shows

For some reason I haven't been able to stop watching mini marathons of these two TV shows, day after day, until finally I have now caught up.  And now I'm despairing over having to wait a whole week to see the next episode, with nothing left to do in my now empty life.  What can I say?  I'm obsessed.  These shows are so filled with romance, laughter, heartbreak and buckets full of drama. 

You know, I'd always thought these TV shows with the high school drama and the bad acting that's really addictive were stupid.  Well, I certainly got the addictive part right.


Let's start with the first of the two, Awkward.  I first saw it at a friend's house while some episode in season 4 was playing, and I couldn't take my eyes off the screen.  That was it.  I needed to know what had happened before.  So I went home, sat through the extremely awkward and inappropriate first episode, and after that I loved it.

Awkward is amazing, let me tell you that.  Jenna Hamilton, the main character is invisible, and she's a blogger that types out her deepest feelings, just like a lot of us bloggers like to think we do.  Her parents are freakin awesome, with her mum having had her as a teen, and her dad being disturbingly hot.  She also has a dramatic best friend named Tamara, who is obsessed with popularity.  And then there's Matty Mckibben, hottest guy in school, and his reputation certainly doesn't disappoint.  He really is hot.


Matty and Jenna literally have the best relationship.  I mean, maybe not at the start, but throughout the seasons they just need to be together.  And they do succeed, but every relationship goes through ups and downs, which means they go on and off, and yeah... it's complicated.  But I'm not kidding.  They're super cute, and they're good friends at the moment.  Matty's best friend, Jake is also pretty cool.  He's such a nice guy.


The thing about Awkward is that it's not stereotypical.  The kind of "head cheerleader mean girl" is overweight and has some major issues.  Then there's a Jesus obsessed girl, and these two make the "popular" girls.  Val, the school counsellor, is so quirky and makes an amazing friend, funnily enough.  There's also an Asian friend who gets swept into the Asian Mafia which is literally the funniest thing because Asians know all :')


And if Awkward isn't stereotypical, Faking It is even less so.  It's basically about two best friends who pretend to be lesbian to be popular in a very alternative school.  The only problem is, one of the best friends actually turns out to be a lesbian, in love with her best friend, and the other is really only doing this to get the "hottest" guy in school.

Amy's the actual lesbian best friend, and she's from a Southern kind of family.  Her mum's a weather woman into girly pageants and manners and stuff, and her step dad is like her mother. The interesting part though is her step sister, who's tiny, blonde and a bitch.  The thing is, she's actually got this huge secret that's so unpredictable when it comes out.  I actually want to spoil so bad, but I won't.


And then Karma, the straight best friend, comes from a hippy family.  Her parents are so funny and do drugs and stuff and yeah, they're hilarious, and totally in support of anything lesbian.  Karma may seem really annoying and a stupid character at first, but trust me, she gets better.


What I'm really interested in is Liam Booker, the "hottest" guy.  Man, he's perfect.  You may remember him as Mason from Wizards of Waverley Place.  He's an artist with a super funny gay best friend whom I love and is actually a whole character of his own, not just a sidekick, Shane.  He's also really good-looking and rich, which you'll find the details of later.  The only problem is he's a playboy, but don't worry, Karma tames him.


Now please don't judge me for explaining these TV shows I've been obsessing over.  I get that they may sound outrageous and stupid, but just you wait.  Once you watch a few of these episodes, you'll be converted too.  But if you don't, just know I'm not that insane.

Ugh.  Everyone has their guilty pleasures.  But I'm not alone.  I have quite a few friends that like these shows too, even though I may have been the one to introduce them.

Just try a few episodes, for me?

Love,
M

    1. Yes! Someone understands! Thank you Kathie! Jenna and Matty just belong together right? <3 And you should try Faking It. At first I didn't think it was as good, but soon I was addicted all the same.

    1. Oh! I think I watched that too! Is that the one with the girl who pretends to be an adult and gets an internship at some fashion place? Or is that the one with the British lady who gives girls confidence and blind dates with their crushes?

    1. That is so true about Faking It! At first I thought it was a little weird and as much as I wanted to like Karma, I just couldn't. But now I love Karma and I love the show! I haven't heard of Camilla, but seeing as my life has ended with no TV shows, I think I'm gonna go look it up ;)

    1. Haha yeah. It's become an obsession and a serious time consumer this past year. I swear I've spent at least a month of my life just on TV. You should definitely check these shows out to waste more time :)

    1. Just google 'Awkward season 1 episode 1' online and it should come up with some online websites. The one that seems to work really well is called 'Coke and Popcorn', but the links on watchseries should work too, and all of season 1 is still on Megashare.
