For many of us, it’s summer. It’s humid, hot, and bright. The sun’s longer hours make the days seem endless but at the same time, time goes by so fast. So what better way to spend the time away than with a fun distraction like a summer fling?

Normally, the term is used when talking about short term relationships but I’ve always said television is my boyfriend anyway so for this summer, I’ve chosen Faking It as my summer fling! Or one of them at least. ;)


REC ME FRIDAY: THE SUMMER FLING


FAKING IT | Season 1
Network:  MTV, Tuesdays 10:30PM EST
Starring: Rita Volk, Katie Stevens, Gregg Sulkin, Michael J. Willett
Written by: Carter Covington (hey, that’s an actual character on Hart of Dixie!)
Premise: Most of the official summaries for the show don’t do it any favors because the idea of faking homosexuality as a way to climb the social ladder? Yeah, that sounds terrible on paper. The show starts off on that awful idea but by the end of the pilot, the show moves toward something much more interesting.

Faking It is about two best friends, Amy and Karma. At their supposedly extremely liberal school at Austin, Kara realizes that being a lesbian will increased her popularity level as well as her chance to hook up with the school’s hottest boy, Liam. Amy is much less concerned about her social status but loves her best friend and goes along with it. After a kiss to ‘prove’ their homosexuality, Amy realizes she may be genuinely attracted to her best friend.
