Blending super-sharp humour with emotional sincerity, Awkward certainly does seem to take its lead from those seminal teen romcoms of the 1980s. The result is a show about adolescents that can be enjoyed by all ages.
Jenna's buoyancy in a life of constant land mines keeps "Awkward" fun and refreshing.
New Jenna, as she calls herself, seems strikingly more together than the Jenna I loved last year, and I kind of miss her klutzy chaos. She even looks a bit too polished. Go ahead, girl -- grow up. Get it together. But keep it real.
Resolution has two meanings: one implies closure, and the other involves a plan for the future. It succeeds in providing both, offering an epilogue to season one and a prologue to season two without losing any momentum in the process.
The dialogue is still quotable and catchy, but the unique voice and rhythm is reduced, if not altogether gone.
High school horrors are pretty universal-even for people well past that age like me-and Awkward's writing is sharp enough to keep even those viewers who refuse to go to their reunions laughing.
