This one snuck up on me last summer. It debuted right when I was in the middle of a pre-Comic-Con/press tour screener binge, so I skipped it. But reviews from other critics I trust (like Fienberg) and a strong press tour panel inspired me to finally pop in the DVDs, and I really liked creator Lauren Iungerich's smart, empathic comic take on high school, as well as Ashley Rickards' lead performance. I'm long out of MTV's target demographic, but every now and then they do a show that speaks to their audience, but not exclusively.
