Strangers with Candy

Show Summary

"Hello, I'm Jerri Blank and I'm a 46-year-old high school freshman. For 32 years I was a teenage runaway. I was a boozer, a user, and a loser. My friends were dealers, cons, and 18 karat pimps. But now I'm out of jail, picking up my life exactly where I left off. I'm back in high school, living at home, and discovering all sorts of things about my body. I'm finding out that though the faces have changed, the hassles are just the same."

  • The comedic traits of a teen and a 47 year-old high-school dropout.

    The first episode I saw was "who wants cake?" and from there on out I was hooked. All the characters Jerri Noblet Jellyneck and Blackman were what made the show a work of art! Some of my favorate lines... Blackman: Nothing brings me to life like dead salt! Or when derik calls her "Troll" thats funny and mean at the same time. Or noblet hes the reason I got turned on to the show."Wait a minute you can't dismiss my class!" abd that little line got him pepper sprayed in the eyes Lol. Jellyneck: "When I want to do something origanal the first thing I do is get out my tracing paper." Stranger with candy is a work of art!moreless
  • A great show! I didn’t like it after the first few episodes, but then it got better, and better. I love those jokes, and characters.

    I would recommend this show to anyone 12 and older. I didn’t like the first few episodes, but after I continued watching, it got better and better. The jokes are hilarious! (I’ll post my favorite one here):

    Colt lady: we think you’re beautiful, Jerry. (Hugs Jerry, Jerry looks into mirror at her beat up self)

    Jerry: I’m sorry... No...

    Colt lady: Well, if that is how you feel.

    Jerry: Here! You can have this picture of me. (Hands the colt lady the mirror)

    Colt lady: thank you Jerry. (Climbs out of the window)

    This probably wasn’t so funny the way I wrote it down. I guess you had to see it... anyway, I like the art teacher for all his great jokes, and how he and the history teacher, have weird arguments in front of the students, and even principle Blackman has good jokes. It really is a great show, and I think I’m gonna watch it a second time.moreless
  • 'Strangers' is sattirical genius compared to the series that are offered today. It is the most original show to ever meet tv and It almost has a cartoon quality to its presentation. The characters all seem dynamic in some way and have their own stories.moreless

    The reality is that this show is smart in such a dumb way that smart people catch the humor ,but its sometimes wasted and dumb people catch just the end bits and end up not really enjoying it. This is a special show and can only be appreciated by someone who has the best of both spectrums. The crude aspect is enjoyed mildly by the masses and the irony, oxy morons, and dry wit can be seen by those who are able to dig deeper while watching. You have to be paying attention, its not like everything other series where all the jokes are out there in the open. Its modeled after the classic after-school specials and parodies the somcial norms and our society and thats another aspect I see that people either love or hate. There are no inbetweens and if you start out hating you probably won\'t ever learn to like it ,but once you like it there is no turning back.moreless
  • not that funny

    5.6
    when i first heard about this show i thought it was going to be really funny. and the first couple of episodes got a chuckle or two out of me and that was about it. i have heard that somebody signed off on making this into a motion picture. i really do not understand why on earth anyone would think that this is a good idea.
  • The after-hours after school special. Jerri Blank is a 46 year old highschool dropin, after 32 years as a teenage runaway she is reliving her highschool years, learning the wrong lessons, the right way. Joined by her ambiguously gay teachers, oppresivemoreless

    The best piece of media ever created. My favorite show ever created bar-none. It is truly a satisfyingly just guide to highschool and life in their most brutally honest forms. The least digniffied representation of adolescent against ever created, yet the most accurate, although exaggerated. It is a travesty this show was cancelled after only just 30 episodes (31 if you count the unaired pilot).
