I think I am starting to get too old to really enjoy them, but for years I was a huge fan of high school TV shows…until I had long past my teens.
Here are some of my favourites…
I cannot believe this series didn’t last longer than it did. It was simply awesome, and not just because it starred Carly Pope. It had some of the best writing I have ever seen on any high school series.
Beverly Hills 90210
When I was at school this was the TV show to watch. It really was the first of its kind. Although it looks a little dated now
This series is my guilty pleasure. I watched all seasons (but the final one) faithfully. Loved all the characters, loved all the drama especially the never-ending relationship problems. Great soundtrack too.
This Australian high school series was so different than all the other American series at the time. More realistic, as in the boys and girls actually had sex and did drugs and got up to no good, without the moralizing tone telling us how to behave.
