My new favourite show [The Paper – Race for Editor-in-Chief]

Oh my god, you guys: I have a new favourite show ever.

I’ve been reading a lot about a new MTV reality series called The Paper, so I thought I’d see what all the fuss is about. Best decision ever: this show is fantastic, showcasing the passion that a gaggle of smart , articulate high-schoolers have for their amazing school newspaper. (Do all American schools have papers like this?)

Episode one follows the young journos as they battle for the coveted job of editor-in-chief, a position eventually awarded to the vibrant, socially goofy, Tracy Flick-ish Amanda (who I adore, partly because she knew that “cross-dresser” is hyphenated without having to look it up). Pissed off, the other writers immediately start plotting against her. It’s sooo high school, and sooo addictive.

You can watch the series online via its official site. Do so now – it’s like Laguna Beach, but about kids who actually have brains.
