Welcome to Weemawee High School, where being in the right clique can make one's years in school memorable. Enter Patty Greene and Lauren Hutchinson, two freshman who tried hard to be accepted into these cliques. The only problem was they stood out like sore thumbs. Patty was brainy and wore glasses, and Lauren was overweight and had braces. Thankfully, two other "square pegs" accepted them. They came in the form of aspiring comedian Marshall Blechtman and New Wave rocker Johnny Ulasewicz (aka Johnny Slash). Still, Lauren and Patty wanted to be in with the cool kids who came in the form of Jennifer DeNuccio, a wanna-be Valley Girl; LaDonna Fredericks, the hippest black girl in Weemawee High; Jennifer's boyfriend Vinnie Pasetta, a John Travolta carbon copy; and Muffy Tepperman, who joined anything from JV pep squad to science fair organizer.Written by

You know the feeling. The awkwardness, the tender times, the silly moments of being fourteen and not quite sure you've got what it takes to be popular. That's what Square Pegs is all about. Join Patty and Lauren in the sights, sounds and songs of growing up in the 80's.
With so many old TV shows putting out full-season or complete series DVD sets, I would go out of my way for Square Pegs: The Complete Series if they ever produced it! All 20 episodes in one collection, and for extras they can do recent interviews with the cast and crew as well as a tribute to Merritt Butrick (Johnny Slash), who died of AIDS in 1989. Hey, if MY BIG FAT Greek LIFE can do a "complete series" DVD, why not SQUARE PEGS? The original distributor of the show was Embassy Television (who also distributed THE FACTS OF LIFE and WHO'S THE BOSS?), but they went out of business, so I don't know who to Email about getting a SQUARE PEGS collection together.
