However, on the plus side, the Soap Opera format lets it go much deeper and more long-term than the average show about teens (no solving problems in twenty minutes, and most of the kids have gone through real Character Development). The show is one of the few exceptions to Dawson Casting; the teenage characters are almost all played by actual teenagers, and they're very good actors, lately coming to the series with years of experience in other TV productions, often alongside each other.
And despite the famed Anvilicious-ness of the show, some of the lessons taught by the show are important for the teenage audience.
