So, I saw the pilot. Some friends and I watched it during lunch today. it was good -- I can see the Juno and MSCL elements -- but it seemed to lack the depth or grounded reality of those. It's definitely a 1/2 hour comedy and not an hour drama. A few laugh-out-loud moments. Other than the name of the school, and maybe the depiction of the mom, don't see a lot based on the community so far. Surprised to see it was filmed at a school with enclosed hallways, definitely the exception rather than the norm in Southern California.

Update: the show was renamed Awkward. It's pretty cute. Waiting to see the "Knick Knackers" one.
