Did anyone check this out?

I watched it over the weekend. It is completely awkward having 30 year olds play 13... but I think they pulled it off? The first few episodes are a little rocky, but there are some really good ones towards the end.

Maya looks the part but Anna looks too old when they do close ups. It was pretty funny. It sort of reminded me of Square Pegs.

Weird title name. If you look at the title, at first it looks like it says "PENIS" and not "PEN15".

Never heard of the Pen club?

It has 14 members, you're the 15th.

Let me write it on your hand - "PEN15"

Classic 90's middle school joke.

^I had a friend named Denis. It was an ongoing gag to add a line under the D where he had written his name, to change it to Penis.

That's good stuff.

This is venturing into college now, but we had a (very dumb) online system where if you forgot your password, you needed to go to human resources and have them reset it for you. One time we found our buddy's password and logged into the system and changed his username to "1Penis" and then changed his password. We told him of the username change and refused to tell him the password until he eventually had to go to human resources to reset it. The first question the little old lady that works there asks is "what's your username?".

Penis jokes will never get old.

Anna is so weird and awkard looking it almost works as just an awkard looking teen. But yes, the close ups are bad because of wrinkles.

A lot of cluelessness in this thread. Them looking old is the shtick of the show.
