Holy goodness Eli is my favorite character! I mean, yeah, who doesn't love him? He's manipulative, sexy, insane, creepy, sexy, obsessive, sexy, sweet, sexy... Um, sorry. I got a bit carried away there. He's just really sexy.
Even when he's acting bat-shit crazy, he still has a good heart, like when he made Jake and Claire work out their problems. (Although by then, he wasn't acting bat shit crazy cuz he was on meds that actually worked...)
Hey! And yeah! Basically the show is a highschool soap/drama that follows all these different characters as they experience being a teenager in highschool. It covers a lot of different issues and topics that people our age can relate to, like as divorce, sex, drugs, bullying, and all sorts of other stuff!
And nah it's not TOO dramatic...well, it can be But it's a really great show (it got nominated for a Grammy!), and there is a character on it for everyone to love! I personally love Eli hahah!
