Now that the world has discovered the awesomeness of American Horror Story, then it is about time that we rediscover Popular, the Ryan Murphy creation for the WB network. It is the campiest, most over-the-top high school dramedy ever put to film. Watch Mr. Murphy speed through storylines involving Christmas angels, cancer, serial killers, giant trees, seal-clubbing, mental retardation, cheerleading, sabotage, prom, and lesbianism like his brain was farting out ideas faster like a supercomputer. A supercomputer that farts out ideas.

Like AHS, or Glee, or Nip Tuck, this show is sometimes transcendent, and sometimes excruciating. But that is what you get from a Ryan Murphy production. Every episode is a crapshoot. Just watch out for that Mary Cherry. You meet her once, and you will be quoting her for the rest of your life.
