After watching every episode of this series in one day, I can justly confirm that this series was one of the most hilariously original ones I've ever seen. The premise, putting teenage clones of historical figures in a high school drama parody, is bizarre and fun, and adds character development for the clones never feeling like they can amount to their original counterparts.
The series was a well done parody as well, mercilessly mocking the ridiculously angst filled high school dramas you can find basically everywhere, adding a creative twist, and still making us care about what's going on while proving that the show itself cares. The problem with most parodies is that they're mean spirited, but this one uses it setting as an advantage to draw us in to the absurd drama that we shouldn't care about due to seeing it a million times before, but we do. I do at least. The main controversy is that the clones (or more specifically Ghandi) are nothing like the original figures they're based off of, and borderline insulting, but you've got to remember that they cracked under the pressure of living up to the expectations that have been set for them.
Unfortunately, this series is one of the saddest examples of being Cut Short
that I've seen to this day. The purpose for building a clone army and Scudworth's plan to create "Cloney Island" were just starting to be explored, and the Love Quadrulogy
or whatever it escalated to was never resolved, as the principle characters were frozen in the middle of their love confessions. My heart sank at the end of the finale, with the questionable promise of "To Be Continued... ?!" Never being fulfilled. Still though, you'll love the show as it lasts, and it's one of the best I've seen.
Also the music was fantastic, and the theme pretty much summed up the atmosphere that the show created for itself.
