MTV’s ‘Awkward’ season 3, episode 5 review: Jenna and Matty’s living situation

AwkwardWhen you are in high school, it can be hard enough to find “me time” (or time with your friends) when you have a boyfriend that is almost constantly around. If you add to this the fact that your boyfriend happens to be living with you, it can be best summed up with one word: Suffocating.

On Tuesday night’s new episode of “Awkward” season 3, we had a chance to find out just what happened in the aftermath of Matty moving out after a massive fight with his parents. They were hardly caring, and he was left to fend for himself. At first, he genuinely thought that living with his girlfriend would be paradise, but then things very quickly started to go completely haywire.

Jenna was starting to freak out over not getting any time to herself, and the story was handled in a pretty realistic way. The two both loved each other, and were trying to find a way to make this arrangement work. However, they were also both embarrassed and self-conscious, and hoping thus to find a way to keep some sort of romance alive.

In the end, the only way that they may have been able to do this (after an attempt at watching the worst “Harry Potter” “adaptation” ever) was for him to try and find a way to move back home, and in doing so, it at least feels almost like their romance has been restored again … for now. We still sense trouble, especially with a certain creative writing classmate of Jenna’s.

Also entertaining this week was the opportunity to see a pretty hysterical story involving Tamara and Sadie, as they had the world’s most prideful fight over who would be the first one to break down via a sleepover. These two characters are in some ways alike, which is what makes their interactions all the more ridiculous. We don’t think either party really gained anything from this, but that may be besides the point.
