1. THE SUMMARY
Red Band Society is at one moment a heartbreaker, and at the next, a laugh factory. Yes, you could criticize the story for having cliché high school characters (mean cheerleader, profound child, teen charmer, nerdy girl, emo dude, etc.), our society obviously finds something fascinating about that period in human growth. This show gives the audience what they want to see, but at the same time shows audiences a reality that is often too hard to watch: children in hospitals.
