You might have liked your fictional high school dramas to play out in a world of beautiful people, in even more beautiful clothes. Or, maybe you wanted some fangs and fur in the mix. Or, perhaps a laugh track, because adolescence is hard and sometimes it needs a few jokes. Whatever high school show you can spend a whole weekend marathoning, the glue that held it together was the young love, the two 20-somethings playing 15-year-olds who gazed deeply into each other's eyes and said everything you wanted that guy in your bio class to say to you.
