Viewers do not know what to make of My Life As Liz when they stumble upon the MTV show. The show looks like a documentary about an unconventional 17 year old girl trying to survive high school in Texas. The storyline and dialogue make it seem like a scripted comedy. However the look and feel of the show has a reality TV vibe. My Life As Liz almost falls into the growing group of shows classified as mockumentaries. The mockumentary format depicts fictional events in a documentary style. However, My Life As Liz is an original concept because it is a true blend of fiction and reality. My Life As Liz stars Liz Lee as she embarks on her senior year of high school in a small town. The cameras do follow her as she attends classes and interacts with others making parts of the show true reality television. Other events are planned or edited to provide the structure and humor that a scripted program provides. Most reality TV is assumed to be at least somewhat fictional. My Life As Liz is different because it is open about the process. Viewers can speculate about what about is true and false in every episode. Liz appeals to any person who is a bit of a misfit. Liz is an exuberant oddball who does not hide her differences while living in a small, conservative Texas town. She is happy to be a geek and enjoy life with her friends. The show focuses on Liz and her interactions with the popular clique at school. The happy outcast often clashes with the conceited queen bee Cori Cooper. The two were good friends until high school drama interfered and left them on opposite sides of the social world. Many people are attracted to the rebellious protagonist as the series continues. The relationships in the show are said to be real but follow a structure similar to most TV love triangles. Bryson Gilreath is a friend who Liz has a crush on. They appear to share an attraction but he has a girlfriend. Liz pines over Bryson while not realizing that her best friend Colin Sullivan has feelings for her. Anyone can relate to the relationships and challenges that Liz faces. Blurring the lines between fact and fiction creates an intriguing series. Whether the show is real or not, fans enjoy rooting for Liz as she overcomes high school.
