Awkward Season 3 Review “The Campaign Fail”

Words have always been important on Awkward and, now that Jenna has finally acknowledged her rock bottom last week, she has to realise that actions don’t always speak the loudest. ‘The Campaign Fail’ was about two things – Tamara and Jake’s previously stable relationship imploding and Jenna making amends for her actions over the past few weeks – and thank god for that sweet ending. This show used to be a comedy and, while I’m not complaining about the new things it’s been trying this year, some levity would be welcome.

Starting with Tamara and Jake, it’s a shame that their lack of communication has torn them apart so soon. As soon as Jenna and Matty split up, it was only a matter of time before their friends followed suit, and what I really want now is for Jake to get a bit more to do outside of a relationship. He was introduced as a relatively viable romantic option for Jenna in the first season, and then we were all surprised by how well he and Tamara worked together, so the next stage must surely be about establishing him as a character on his own.
