10 Things I Hate About You

Remember this?

I hate the way you talk to me,
and the way you cut your hair.
I hate the way you drive my car,
I hate it when you stare.
I hate your big dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind.
I hate you so much it makes me sick,
it even makes me rhyme.
I hate the way you’re always right,
I hate it when you lie.
I hate it when you make me laugh,
even worse when you make me cry.
I hate it when you’re not around,
and the fact that you didn’t call.
But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you,
not even close,
not even a little bit,
not even at all.

One of my favorite high school movies (way before I knew of treadmills) was 10 Things I Hate About You, mainly because Larisa Oleynik played Bianca, the younger sister. I was such a big fan of her that I’d watch The Secret World of Alex Mack religiously, and try to catch her one episode appearance in The Adventures of Pete and Pete. 10 Things was one of the movies that I don’t think I’d ever tire of watching even if it’s already how many years old.

And boy am I glad to know about this:


Yes, it’s a 10 Things I Hate About You TV series! I can see so many familiar faces in the series: Lindsey Shaw (from Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide — it’s Jennifer Moseley!) who plays Kat, the older Stratford sister; Meaghan Martin (from Camp Rock, Tess the Diva) plays Bianca, the younger sister;  and Nicholas Braun (from Minutemen and Sky High — he plays the glowing sidekick in the latter) as Cameron, the geek who crushes on Bianca. I’m kind of not used to Lindsey being not Moze, but I think it fits her.

The pilot airs on July 7, 2009 on ABC Family. Guess who’s definitely watching this show. :P

Here’s another sneak peek of the show:
