I love this show! It's so different. Also, I totally love that there is finally a show where (pretty young) teenagers are having sex and the characters are reacting (or not reacting) the same way real-life people would be. There's no panic and no weird fixation on it.

Did you see the latest episode? I was so shocked that she wrote the letter. My mouth literally dropped.

It's like the mainstreamy lamer My So-Called Life. It entertains me!

I really like this show. It's fun and well-written and I watch it without shame. But my boyfriend has to leave the room because he can't handle all the teen slang.

I was shocked too! It was a great twist after all the mystery around what happened that night.

When I saw the title I was hoping somebody had made a TV show of Ariel Schrag's comics. Alas. :(

I don't understand why Jenna wasn't more upset by her writing the letter. I liked the gesture of her ripping it up and realizing it didn't have control over her, but if my friend wrote me something like that I would never be able to look at them again.

Maybe because she knew there were good intentions behind it? I'm assuming there were good intentions behind it. Maybe.

I don't like how little we see of Jenna's other friend. I like her so much better.

Check out this Awkward webisode: how to make friendsThat guidance counselor is certainly something special.

Ouch. That was a bit harsh to say to Matty (sp?).

Oh, man. I was so worried that it would be the mother. I thought it in one episode, but had dismissed it by now. Her face when she realized! Poor Jenna.

Fictional character? What do you mean "fictional character"?

I had to bump this to say I just watched this show and I love it, I hope it gets another season and soon.

When Sadie talks I think of Laurie from Cougar Town and Penny from Happy Endings and sometimes Jenna looks like Rory from Gilmore Girls. Also, I love that Tamara is the "duhhhh" girl from Community.

So, who's been watching S2? I'm not loving it as much as S1 but it's still a lot of fun.

It took me forever to figure out who Jenna's mum's old bf/crush was, he was Henry in Ringer.

He was also the dad on Life Unexpected, which starred Cassie from the Secret Circle.

I like Season 2, but I don't want to see Jake get hurt, so I'm fearful.

Me neither, I feel like she will end up with Matty. Jake looked pretty hurt at the wedding. Poor Jake :(

ETA: I will look up Life Unexpected

I'm so team Jake, he's just an all around fantastic guy, where as Matty has a lot of growing up to do, which is reasonable since he is a kid still, but Jake is a better boyfriend right now.

Its good! But I am feeling too old to watch it. Just because some of the stuff they can get away with on tv now freaks me out. I do double takes all the time. Like, did I just hear them work masterbation into the mix without blinking an eye? Yes I did! Wow!

Although Sadie really gets on my nerves. Her neck thing she does is the most annoying thing ever! Give it up already, we get it. You don't have to do it every time you have a line.

Soooooo, who's been watching since it came back? I hate New Jenna even more than I hated Old Jenna, which was a lot since she's always been pretty much the worst. Colin is terrible. I miss Matty, but let's be real, he deserves better. Tamara and Sadie are hands down my favorite characters.

Oh, and Jenna's dad? Still bringing the hotness.
