I LOVE AWKWARD. YOU’RE WELCOME.

Alright so I don’t usually blog much about television shows, since I watch wayyyy too many (thanks, Netflix), but MTV’s Awkward deserves a mention. The show’s third season started tonight, and I just had to talk about the show a little (mostly so I had an excuse to Google photos of Matty McKibben, but more on that later). The show follows sassy, blog-loving high school freshman Jenna through an awkward series of trials and tribulations that ensue following an accident involving a bathtub that ends up looking like a suicide attempt. Her family and friends are all convinced that she tried to kill herself (she didn’t) and it just unravels from there. The other half of this show follows Jenna’s relationship with heartthrob Matty McKibben, the cool and popular guy she hooked up with at summer camp. awkOne of the reasons this show is so great is honestly the dialogue. Whoever writes this show deserves a Nobel Prize in The Poetic Capturing of Teen Angst, for real. Anyway, the supporting characters on this show are fantastic and the things they say legit crack me up constantly. Besides Matty and Jenna, we have Tamara and Ming, our leading lady’s BFFs, super bully Sadie Saxton, crazy guidance counselor Val, and Jake Rosati, Matty’s best friend. The only way you can understand what this show is like is if i show you in gifs, so here goes. First we have the far too good looking Matty McKibben: matty matty3matty4 The brilliant uber-bitch Sadie Saxton, who usually follows her advice with a warm “you’re welcome”: sadie sadie2 sadie3 sadie4 sadie5 sadie6 And the beautiful Jenna/Tamara dynamic: tamara5 tamara3tamara6This show is really amazing. It’s one of those shows that makes me miss high school a little bit, honestly. Even though these actors look way too old to be playing sixteen year olds, I still can relate them to my actual high school experience, and I love them all the same. It’s gotten more relatable since I’ve gotten to college, which makes me love it more. The only downside is that Matty McKibben has raised my standards to an unreasonable level which really blows. The new season just started, but check it out Tuesdays at 10EST on MTV!! Are there any other Awkward-ers out there?? ……you’re welcome, xo Miranda
