YMMV: Awkward.

The web series:

  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The 'Miss Brighteyes' musical number at the end of Awkward 3. It could be removed entirely without impacting the rest of the series... but it is fucking hilarious.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Lester and Alex making up and Alex standing up to Jermaine in Awkward 6. Awwwww.
  • Moment Of Awesome: Awkward 6: Alex standing up to Jermaine and Kevin showing up out of nowhere so they and Lester can "take out the trash".
  • Moe: Kevin is dangerously close. The Dogged Nice Guy thing helps.
  • Narm Charm: Lester's M&Ms speech and Kevin's 'I like weird' bit edge into corny, but they're all the sweeter for it.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Alex's unnamed blind date, who threatens him in Korean and beats the snot out of him.
  • Squick:
    • Alex claims to have seasoned Lester's popcorn with his own semen. He claims to be joking, but with Alex it's hard to tell...
    • The second season trailer reveals Kevin is squicked by sex with zombies, while Lester and Alex are squicked by sex with someone covered in leeches.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Alex is only interested in another guy because he snapped and isn't right in the head. A lot better when you realize it's not a matter of gender so much as proximity; Lester is just conveniently close.

The MTV series:

  • Awesome Moments: S1 finale when Val, having had enough of Sadie's shit, dumps a bowl of punch all over her, then delivers an Ironic Echo of something Sadie said a minute earlier.
    • Ming gets two in S 3 E 9 - first, she punches Becca in the face after her crossing the line with getting Fred Wu in trouble at school, and then later having the rest of the "Asian Mafia" actually bow to her for what she did.
  • Base Breaker: Season 2 finale. Jenna's choice and the Pair the Spares move.
  • Cliché Storm: While some may say that the show is better than it sounds, others see it as just another crappy teen show. YMMV on this for sure.
  • Crack Pairing: "Once Upon A Blog" features several AU's where these exist, mainly Matty/Jake and Matty/Ming.
  • Ho Yay: Matty and Jake have this at such power that the show itself Lampshaded it no less than three times.
  • Hollywood Homely: Jenna and Tamara somehow have had difficulty attracting guys.
  • Hollywood Pudgy: Fan reaction to Ashley Rickards' weight gain between seasons 1 and 2.
  • Tear Jerker: When Jenna sees Matty kissing another girl in the hot tub. Then one season later when Jake sees Jenna and Matty kissing in her bed. The look on their faces in both scenarios gets you.
    • Jenna singing the lullaby to her mom can definitely count as one of the (if not the) biggest tearjerking moments in the series thus far.
  • The Woobie: Jenna, and to a certain degree, Lissa.
    • It's hard not to feel bad for Lacey after the whole school reads Jenna's blog and starts to call her nonstop with hostile words.. Could be Jerkass Woobie for some, especially considering she really should have known better than to make it open for the public to read and just assume that nobody from her school would ever come across it.
