    Several of their 'teen' characters are portrayed by those in their mid-20's.

    It has struggled with its ratings.

    Many fans and critics felt its second season had a major drop in quality and realism.

    It tackles many relevant and controversial teen topics such as racism, alcoholism, teen sex and parent-child tension.
    It allows its actors to improvise their movements and the delivery of their lines.
    Many critics included it on their 'Best TV Series' lists after the first season.
    Its pilot won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Directing for a Drama Series.
    It is shot around actual locations in Texas and casts several locals as extras.
    It has a strong cult following.
    Connie Britton and Brad Leland, who appeared in the film version, were brought back to portray similar roles on the series.
