Anyone remember this WB show from 1999 that only lasted two seasons?

I do and just started to rent them on Netflix. I forgot how much I love the show, and my bf is super into it now.

The premise is lame and so overdone. A high school dramady about two groups of kids the popular and the not-so-popular.

You have Brooke, the popular blond cheerleader at school who gets great grades and tries to be good, her best friend, Nicole, who is a totaly bitch, Marie Cherrie, the new girl who is rich and popular and a little crazy (my personal fav on the show), Josh, the quarterback who is dating Brooke, and Sugar Daddy, Josh's fat best friend who is part of cool crew.

The not-so-popular bunch is Sam, the pretty girl who hates Brooke and ends up having to deal with her in and out of school, Lilly, the activist, Carmen, the overweight girl who dreams of being a cheerleader and Harrison, their friend who has had a crush on Brooke for years.

I know it sounds SO corny, but the writing is really fresh and there are tons of really funny moments. Some episodes are hit or miss, but I promise that you will get hooked if you give it a try.

I think she got skinnier in season two. In the first season she talked about being at fat camp and her food issues.

I loved that show. The second season got even campier and more outrageous than the first. Mary Cherry is the best. And how great are the names Poppy Fresh and April Tuna? Isn't the actrees that played Nicole dating Melissa Etheridge?
