      Sex, Lies and Videotape used a little cctv as a plot device to cause social chaos in the school but I have to admit, I only wanted to see how Jenna was going to deal with her 'mother' (and we'll use that term in the loosest way possible).



      Matty doesnt seem to be giving up without a fight, which is a 180 from season one and I love it. He is so very late and blurting out 'I love you' to Jenna....is just too little. Thes nothing wrong with Jake and he treats Jenna well (I am on team Matty but I'm glad that logic isnt always blinded by love - it shows that Jenna is growing as a person). The lads do seem to be heading for a confrontation of wonderment.



      Mings was brilliant. "I feel Asian" and the whole conspiracy theory (they control everything) was so excellent in comedic terms with superb acting between Ming and Becca (Becca could have her own show). I couldnt look away from their scene. Seriously it was so good, i neglected my coffee for 8minutes.



      So now for Jenna and her mother. Honestly its something my own mother would have done, if it wasnt for the fact that she did it in person for everyday for 17.5yrs. So I'm biased when I think her mother should be considered for the death penalty. The actresses were flawless and kicked up my appreciation for Awkward enough notches to write this review. The tears, the struggle, the strength of Jenna and the stupid desperation of her deluded mother played out with maturity and depth. I actually love the actress that plays Lacey.



      Looking forward to next week and Jake...stop analysing songs.
