Sadie J is a CBBC television series. The titular protagonist is a 12-year-old girl, sharing a household with male relatives and their closest friends. As the show often reminds you, Sadie Jenkins is the only girl in a boy's world.

Started in 2011 and ended in 2013. Much of the charm of the series is the three plots going on at once and the occasional references to Sadie's Missing Mom.

Tropes:

  • Celebrity Star: There's a plot to meet Pixie Lott in one episode.
  • Cosmetic Catastrophe: Sadie deliberately inflicts one on herself in order to submit a review thrashing her father's fiancee's beauty salon.
  • Married to the Job: Steve. He was Happily Married, but then... Deconstructed, in a way. He's so obsessed with business, he constantly tries to get everything done the same day, leading to some desperate situations for him and Keith.

  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Sadie to Kit.
  • Older than They Look: Lampshaded with Keith in Partylicious. He had trouble getting into a 15-rated movie for that reason, causing his girlfriend to storm off.
  • Unmanly Secret: Kit tries to hide his fashion interests from cousin Lollo (Welsh, pronounced Yoh-low) by pretending to enjoy rugby. Lollo then says that he'd like him anyway when he accidentally (but inevitably) finds out.
