* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Jermaine's character is douchebag of epic proportions. By all accounts, though, he's a totally nice guy in real life.


''Awkward'', known also as ''The Awkward Compilation'', is a self-proclaimed "love letter to pop culture" -- a video series about the trials and tribulations of an awkward group of Asian-Canadian university students trying to find their own happy endings and getting in each others' way in the process. Geeky humour, occasional randomness, and the odd spontaneous musical number ensue. Prepare to [[CrowningMomentOfFunny laugh until you pee a little]].

Lester and Alex are housemates and friends. One day Lester walks in on Alex [[ADateWithRosiePalms making time with his hand]] and a video of Lester on the toilet, and it becomes apparent that Alex's feelings for him are [[HoYay a little more than "friendly"]]. In fact, a little more like [[StalkerWithACrush "stalkerish and obsessive"]]. And by "a little" I mean "exactly". This makes things rough for everyone involved when Lester meets Steph...
