Opposite Sex

Show Summary

Jed, Phil, and Cary are the only boys at Evergreen Academy, creating a lot of awkward moments and sexist remarks.

Miranda is the girl of Jed's dreams, but there's a problem, she is a junior, and she has a boyfriend.

Kate is interested in Jed, but he must decide between Miranda and her...

Phil is the smartest, he always has a plan, but they just never work.

Cary is the ladies' man, the reason why he and Stella don't get along, she's a feminist, and she would do anything possible to make him go away.

  • An original idea, unfortunately short-lived

    8.5
    It has been a very long time since i've heard a thing about this show, let alone seen it. Re-runs aren't even played, and that's very unfortunate.



    The plot is original: Three high school guys transfer into an all-girls school as "pioneers" (in an attempt to make the school co-ed)



    All three of the characters are caught up in much highschool drama, including sex, academics and all the other good and bad things we all remember from highschool. That is definitely one of the show's intrigues, is the fact that anyone from fourteen up can relate to whatever is going on the episode. We all know that some of the weirdest things in life happen in high school.



    What's also great is the fact that this show was one of Milo Ventimiglia's (of "Heroes" fame) first big roles (save a couple of movie credits dating back to the late 90s). It's great if you want to see where the main character of one of the best current shows came from (acting-wise).



    It sure is a pity that this show met an unfortunately quick demise, for it was filled with humour, gorgeous women and often-great plotlines.



    If you get a chance, don't skip it!moreless
  • How did this get cancelled so quickly?!

    9.5
    I found all the episodes on Youtube and, seeing Milo AND Chris Evans were in it i watched the first one and got hooked right away! I don't understand how this show got canceled so quickly. Milo and Chris do such an amazing job despite the fact neither are 15 (seriously Milo, did you age at all?) and it only had 8 episodes!!! I After every episode I immediately wanted more and was sad after I found there was only 8 episodes it made me so mad because it didn't end on a good note. I really wish this show had had more episodes, even though if there had been, Milo maybe wouldn't have been in Gilmore Girls, which really would've sucked.moreless
  • A comedy about 3 guys that transfer to a newly integrated all-girls school. It has an interesting premise and was entertaining, but was cancelled quickly.

    7.3
    I remember watching this when it first started. I found the premise entertaining and was somewhat jealous of the guys (3 guys at an all girls school, gotta love those odds). It set up an interesting love triangle early on between one of the main guys and a gorgeous upper-classman (which he wanted) and a friend of his (which wanted him). I didn't know which one I was pulling for.



    The show featured some actors that would soon go on to bigger and better things: Milo Ventimiglia ('Gilmore Girls'; 'Heroes'), Allison Mack ('Smallville'), and Chris Evans ('Fantastic Four'). It also proved to be decently funny but Fox quickly cancelled it with (at that time, I didn't pay too much attention to ratings and TV news) no known reason to me.



    I think the show coud have managed to be entertaining for a while but didn't have much staying power in the long run. I would have enjoyed it for a few seasons maybe and then been ready for it to end. At least I still get to see some of these actors on better shows, though I wish I could have seen just a little more of 'Opposite Sex' before it ended.moreless
  • The main character (Jed), Phil and Cary are the only boys on an previously all-female school. Being the only boys in school they have some disadvantages like in later episodes starting to behave like girls as well as advantages.moreless

    Although in total there were only eight episodes produced, Opposite Sex is still an amazing TV-Show that everybody should watch. You probably wonder what makes it that amazing? Well, it's so good because in my opinion it is more realistic than other shows, but obviously some scenes aren't which in fact isn't a bad thing at all, because sometimes one just wants to dream and to go off a little. In fact I, personally, prefer it to shows that are either too realistic or too unrealistic as in my opinion most of the time they go over the top and either make the show boring or just too screwed up. If you are still not sure if the show is worth watching, then I can just give you this last piece of advice: just watch the first episode and then decide if it is your type of show. If it is I can promise you will not regret watching it.moreless
