A most obscure - non Firefly realted - blog entry

It must be REALLY slow today ( Dec 26th ), because I have no other explanation for this post. Last night, while mindlessly channel surfing , I caught this clearly made for TV movie on Lifetime or some such, called Odd Girl Out It was some teeny bop drama ( redundant, I know ) about popularity and one girls struggle to 'fit in'. Ok, never mind the story, here's the kicker....I thought I was watching some early Lindsay Lohan movie. Seems all she did, after The Parent Trap and before Herbie was the same tired story over and girl at school, naive to the laws of survival of the fittest , the importance of being popular, cliques, jealousy, backstabbing princesses, etc.. gets hurt, then comes back to show the world that she's prettier, smarter and a better human being than all the 'mean' girls put together.

But this wasn't Lindsay Lohan. Despite that it looked like a young LL, it was actually the girl from Spy Kids - Alexa Vega. She had changed her hair color and was ,yep....a red head. The resemblence between Alexa and a younger LL is uncanny, at least imo.

Why did I waste time on this? I have no idea.

I've seen this on lifetime and thought it was really well done. School just seems to be getting harder and harder for the kiddies. It's sad that these little princess types thinks it's cool to tear others down because really, they hate themselves and making others hurt makes them feel big. How ugly are they. Doesn't matter if you look pretty, no one will want to spend the rest of their lives with these little divas cause it's to much to deal with. If teenagers really want to be unique, be a good person. There are so few any more.

**Typical Hollywood, remaking things to death. How could they think to improve on "Mean Girls"?

Well, not to give the entire plot away, this little gem was considerably darker than 'Mean Girls'. ( a suicide is attempted ) It had that 'After School Special ' feel to it. And the ages involved were a bit younger... 14 - 15ish, but the looks of things. None of the characters had drivers licenses yet.
