  • The hilarious high school comedy POPULAR is sarcastic, self-conscious, and in on its own joke, just like the teens whose mundane and exquisite drama the series captures. Centering around the lives of stepsisters Brooke McQueen (Leslie Bibb) and Sam McPherson (Carly Pope), Popular finds a great deal of humor in the warring cliques of teen girls--and provides sly social commentary in the process. Blonde, wealthy, and sophisticated beyond her years Brooke heads up her high school's in-crowd, along with the vicious and also blonde Nicole (Tammy Lynn Michaels) and Mary Cherry (Leslie Grossman). The brunette Sam, though equally stunning, finds herself an outcast, along with hyper-activist Lily (Tamara Mello), geeky Harrison (Christopher Gorham), and the voluptuous Carmen (Sara Rue).

    As it dissects the perennial divide between the popular kids and everyone else, POPULAR comments on the inanity of cliques, with Brooke and Sam eventually growing close as sisters, but refusing to cross enemy lines at school. It also provides insight into the state of contemporary teenage angst, with teachers who literally attack their students, complicated family relationships in which kids play as large a part in the emotional dynamics as do their parents, and a chaotic social system where kids desperate to figure out their identity must fight the labels placed on them by their peers. This 6-volume box set includes the complete first season of the series.

    "Shameless, outlandish, just plain mean in its examination of the high school caste system....Yes, this was POPULAR, the anti-teen drama whose loyal following still rues its demise..."
