When I first saw Strangers with Candy back in 1999, I was appalled. First of all I could hardly look at the character of Jerri Blank without wanting to vomit. But after finally giving it a chance I fell in love with the show. It's genius! Drugs, eating disorders, death of a parent, peer pressure, premarital sex...SWC is like Beverly Hills 90210 on acid (fashioning itself off of cheesy afterschool specials). The cast was great, the writing flawless. It sucks that this show was so underrated while it was on the air.
