* BannedEpisode: When the series was screened in Britain by ChannelFour, "Weekend" wasn't shown thanks to the subject matter being too mature for its 6pm time slot - and thanks to the series' only repeat being in an even ''earlier'' slot, it's never been shown on UK TV.



* CutShort: It received a season finale, but then it was canceled.
* DawsonCasting: Averted with Claire Danes as central character Angela and Devon Gummersall as her would-be love interest Brian. Averted (or at least ''mostly'' averted) with Lisa Wilhoit as Danielle, Angela's kid sister. But most of the "high school" cast were at least eighteen (and a few considerably older) when the series began shooting. Actually, Claire Danes was ''[[InvertedTrope thirteen]]'' [[InvertedTrope playing ]] ''[[InvertedTrope fifteen]]'' when shooting began. The DVDCommentary for the pilot episode includes a joke that the show is television's UrExample of inverted DawsonCasting.
** Jordan's DawsonCasting is justified in that Jordan is repeating sophomore year for ''at least'' the second time.
* ADayInTheLimelight: A few, but most clearly the episode ''Life of Brian.''
