23rd Oct: It's time for the second TV Tropes Halloween Avatar Contest, theme: cute monsters! Details and voting here.
What happens when an arrogant sports-fanatic, a socially-clueless but intelligent dork, an anti-social, sarcastic emo and a food-obsessed average kid find themselves lost together in a world where no one knows who they are? Worse, that world is their own hometown, but everything is just slightly different, including the fact that there's no record they exist?That's Nowhere Boys, a show about what happens when four schoolkids with nothing in common are thrown together, after an accident on a school excursion in the Australian bush. When Jake, Andy, Felix and Sam find their way back into town, they are forced to solve the weird mystery about their seeming erasure from existence. Like a fun version of The Breakfast Club with a distinct sci-fi flavour, it is a show distinguished by great character development and clever dialogue pulled-off by strong young actors.
