Awkward Season 3 Review “Taking Sides”

Team Matty or Team Jenna? I don’t know about you but, after this episode of Awkward, ‘Taking Sides’, exposed Jenna for the devolving teenage cliché we’ve always suspected she was, I’d say the choice is pretty clear. It’s really brave of the show to make its protagonist such an unlikeable character in the middle of a season – and she’s not an antihero, she’s just plain odious – and I’m looking forward to seeing how the second half of the season deals with the fallout from her mass friend deletion.

The episode even opened in an unexpected way, with Jenna and Colin going for it on the couch with no guilty looks or hesitation. She’s getting over Matty before he even knows what’s hit him, and the most upsetting scene of the episode was when Jenna told her boyfriend-of-five-minutes-ago that they were broken up and she was starting a new chapter in her life. You’d think he was the one who screwed things up, but Jenna is finally embracing the brat that has been within her since season one.
