Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Series Info

Fringe students cope with life at a Michigan high school in 1980 in this critical favorite. Stories focused on sophomore Lindsay, who discards her straight-A image to hang with the burnout crowd; and her freshman brother Sam, who's tormented by bullies but gets moral support from his nerdy pals. The series may have been too painfully realistic, as it failed to find anything beyond a cult audience. In fall 2000, Fox Family aired several first-run episodes that NBC had shelved.
