Awkward Season 3 Review “A Very Special Episode of Awkward” & “Less Than Hero”

Oh dear. We may finally have reached Jenna’s rock bottom on Awkward’s hour-long special, ‘A Very Special Episode of Awkward’ and ‘Less Than Hero’, but it’s taken us a lot of strife and turmoil to get there. The first half of the hour was about showing how far she’s drifted away from her friends and family, while the second half let her dig her own grave. Was it good? Yes. But was it pleasant to watch? Not exactly.

I really liked the idea of creating an After School Special (or A.S.S.) for Jenna, since it brought back the much-missed meta aspect of the show and did a good job of re-establishing the fact that Awkwardwas never going to tread the familiar path with this storyline. What other show has their protagonist become the villain of the series – the cheatee rather than the cheater – all while pushing the warped perspective of the antagonist, in this case Sadie, into the spotlight? Her interpretation of Jenna was hilariously accurate.
