Why did Jenna think unprivating her blog and sending it to the whole school would make Jake forgive her? Why didn’t she send it to him privately? Why expose everyone’s business(And I honestly don’t blame Matty for not reading it)

Is it just me or was Luke and Jenna relationship weird…like I don’t see why a college Sophomore or Junior would date a 17 year old at the time senior

Sadie/Matty plot hole

Rewatching season 1/2 and Sadie has a crush on Matty and they kiss on NYE. But in the later seasons, Sadie and Matty have more of a brother/sister relationship and they both act grossed out at the thought of being romantic together?? Did they just forget that they already kissed and had a one-sided crush thing going on??

I noticed a handful of plot holes like this from season 1, like Lacey calling Lissa’s mom a “big boozer” when later in the show she’s super strict and religious. It’s just funny that it seems like the writers either forget or just didn’t care at all to stay consistent with the things they set up in season 1 LOL

Awkward…Parenting?

I’d love to see a Jenna/Mattie spin off of them parenting kids aged 5+? Maybe we can watch as Sadie struggles getting pregnant… Jake and Tamara are definitely on baby number 2. Would you guys watch?

Matty trying to stay with Jenna even after she cheated

So after my recent rewatch of Awkward (I hadn’t watched the show since it came out), I came to notice that maybe the reason Matty wanted to stay with Jenna after her infidelity was because his parents were going through their divorce at the same time. I never paid attention to the timeline of events during the show, but maybe Matty was projecting what he wanted his parents to do onto his own relationship. Or it could’ve been that he needed some sort of stability through that.

Fluke ..i mean Luke

I liked him at first but when he came around the 2nd time i was so confused why he seemed so uptight. It's as if he kept trying to manipulate situations & say it was for her best interest. Ex. keeping the relationship a secret, setting up the interview for scu, and even the party with scu admin which seemed so boring!! Also lost count of how many times he would get pissy, leave & come back to say i'm sorry.

Also kinda like :/ b/c they left the show on a cliffhanger 😭 i guess it's okay versus a concrete ending but i was waiting for another episode after it went off tbh. I forgot it ended like that😮

Just me?

So I remember vividly when Awkward was premiering around season 4 when it premiered and Ming had left (which is something i'll never get over) MTV ran a little promo type of video after the episode and gave a website link to watch the video of the person who leaked the student rankings and i can't but help but wonder if anyone else remembers that and if anyone knows who it ended up being? i thought it was Ming (maybe an opening to her coming back??) because of the hat the faceless person wore. idk anyone remember this?

Brett Davern's Age

Anyone else weirded out that Brett was 28 in season 1 and pretending he was 20?

(In real life I mean, not that Jake was 20)

S3 Jenna is awful and character analysis

Hello, this is my first time posting to this sub and rewatching this season. I watched the quiet on set, and while I was looking at the IMDB, I saw that Chrissy Stratton was a producer and wrote three episodes.

Anyway, I know that many main characters are the most hated in many different movies and TV shows, like Twilight and Harry Potter. Insert references here.

Jenna is self-sabotaging; she lacks personality and morphs into anyone she is dating. I hate her in this season. Yes, Collin is hot, but how Jenna handled everything could have been better. Matty was an asshole in the first season, but so far in season 3, he has blossomed into a good guy.

Teenagers are assholes and cheat and turn on their friends, and this is like her Spider-Man 3, bad Peter moment. She seems like she would be a serial cheater. She gets bored in relationships and only thinks about herself.

Also, Jenna's writing is an ass; she is like everything embodied about what people joke about hipsters.

Tamara: I like her, but she isn't my fav. I was a teenager when this show was coming out; no one I ever knew talked like her. It's that kind of thing where it's like a 50-year-old writing a character in the way they think teenagers are. Like Disney showwriters.

Val: Valerie is my favorite character. She is inappropriate at times. However, her stand for Jenna when her blog went public with her mom was admirable and relatable. Also, I love her and Lacey's friendship. It's like they have half a brain cell when they are together.

Ming: I love Ming, I don't really understand the Asian Mafia segment, if it was just written for comedy or if its actually real. I love her and Matty's moments.

Matty: S3 Matty deserves so much better, i hate that he wanted to get back together with Jenna and she was so cold. It seemed like she didn't want to get back together because she couldn't forgive herself, but then she showed that she was just being completely self-involved.

Jake: S1 and S2 Jake and Jenna were my total OTP; he wasn't only the safe choice but also the best choice. However, I wouldn't say I liked how he treated her after Sadie told him about Jenna and Matty hooking up. He repeatedly told her he didn't want to know, and then he hated her for not telling him. And it was a little ick that he didn't like she had sex before him, but then i gave a break because he was a virgin.

Sadie: I love Sadie; from the start, she was a raging skitch and didn't oppose it, and she has a deep character development.

Lissa: I love her and her being so dense, also she is Kelsey Grammer's daughter, I never knew that, lol.

Ally: I love her, and I like her even more when you see her with Sadie. You get to see Sadie get talked back to, but it also seems that Ally likes Sadie because she is such a bitch.

Kevin: He is hot... and I didn't like that he left after finding out Lacey wrote the letter; not only did he walk out on Lacey, but he walked out on Jenna. It would have been better if he kicked Lacey out to show that he was on Jenna's side.

Lacey: Lacey is a second favorite of mine; when you get to see why she wrote the letter, my heart breaks for her. She loves Jenna so much, and yes she is worried about labels and looks and a weird parent, but she brings a lightness to the show

Jenna is the WORST

I saw a similar post on here from 4 years ago. I’m rewatching the show now. Ive always loved this show it’s so funny and honestly relatable from high school lol. But my God Jenna is insufferable. She’s so self involved! Potential Spoiler for anyone who is watching this for the first time: When Matty finds out he’s adopted and he’s confused and struggling to cope with that information and he and Jenna hook up again post break up and then he “ghosts” her and Jenna is begging Matty to talk to her and not drop her post hook up and demanding that something is wrong and he’s mad at her etc. Matty tells Jenna “Not everything is about you Jenna” and Jenna blurts out “IT IS ALL ABOUT ME!” EW!! It really is how she feels. Everything is about her! She’s a bad friend to Tamara. She kissed Ricky and Jake when Tamara was with them! Gross!! I’m a Sadie stan! Sadie is so intelligent and quick witted and her commentary towards Jenna is so perfect. Hamilturd for the win. Every guy Jenna dated deserved better. Skitch!

Thoughts on Eva...

She would say strange phrases that didn't fit her character: "what's up bee-yatches" or "i'll cut u"

Since we find out she's crazy, it's finally making sense that something seemed off...

Least liked to most liked character?

My least liked character was Lissa. I found her whole shtick annoying and her voice grates on my nerves.

My most liked was Matty. Yes he did some questionable things in the beginning of their fling but he was honestly a good guy to Jenna through it all. Very mature.

Am I the only person who thinks Val is a creep?

She is supposed to be a role model as an adult and she crosses the line many times. Making sexual comments and rewatching this as an adult im extremely uncomfortable with her behavior. She seems like she might just be clueless, but nowadays if a guidance counselor behaved like her they would be in danger of being fired if not jail time. Maybe they had her like that as a joke but idk it just bugged me.

Ironic creative writing major

Does anyone else find it ironic that Jenna was a creative writer major but she could only wrote about her ex boyfriends? Im a writer and I can't imagine solely writing about my partners 💀

Where to watch?

Hi guys, I’ve been meaning to rewatch this show for so many years but I can no longer find it anywhere!!!! There is no Paramount Plus in my country and the MTV website tells me it’s not available in my location.

I’m losing all hope :(

Sadie

While Sadie's struggle with her weight are relatable it's hard watching as an adult because Sadie isn't even fat??? She might be plus sized but I would consider her fat???

r/AWKWARD, the subreddit for the tv show, is back.

Hi.

I don’t know if there still is any fan of the tv show left. Partly because it ended years ago, but mainly because many seemed to misunderstand what this subreddit was/is about. I just took over as a moderator, and cleaned up. Removed so many irrelevant posts about whatever people thought was awkward, as they didn’t discuss the tv show. Added a rule to keep it relevant as well.

As the subreddit used to be unmoderated, it was automatically set to ”restricted” after a while, so no one could post for years. But I opened it up to the public again, so anyone can post and comment.

I really used to like Awkward though. Would be nice if there are other fans still around, who wanna talk about it.

Rewatching awkward

I feel like Jenna started off great but as the show has progressed she struggles way too hard with telling people how she feels and that makes me dislike her character. I love Tamara and Val.
