Reviews: As Told By Ginger
Bland with a capital B
It by no means is a horrible show, but As Told By Ginger is just one of those shows where you watch it and you go: ".....What else is there to watch?". You have cookie cutter characters everywhere: from the main character, to her less popular band of friends, to the resident Alpha Bitch and her clique, to the annoying little brother, to the snobby rich kid. They all do what you expect during their days in school. They all just walk around and either angst, fight over a boy/girl, play pranks on each other or a combination of the three. No interesting plots or any new twist with the story lines that do crop up in this series. It's just them being bland, with bland personalities, bland conflict, and a overriding sense of generic bland blandness. Now, this was my opinion as a kid. Now that I grew up into a young adult that understands what the characters go through as their junior-high days roll on...... Yeah, still bland. I can appreciate the people behind it trying to bring attention to the conflicts that people will recognize going through their preteen years. That being said, it's bland, cookie cutter and watching it, I just didn't care. At all.
