A fabulous series, based on a fabulous book, you don't have to be gay or even a teenager to be able to relate to the issues raised throughout the two series. The messages about love, growing up, relationships and confusion have universal potency, and are portrayed particularly well here.
And if you do happen to be young and queer then you actually have to watch this, it's been hailed the English equivilent of the L Word for a reason!
The only tiny annoying point is that the soundtrack on the DVD isn't half as great as the iconic soundtrack on the series itself, being different in pretty much all cases, but c'est la vie.
The two series in one boxed set is (slightly) better value for money, but is well worth it! Season 2 is just as funny, just as touching, and just as brilliant as Season 1.
