Summary: After numerous attempts of trying to be popular two best friends decide to come out as lesbians, which launches them to instant celebrity status. Seduced by their newfound fame, Karma and Amy decide to keep up their romantic ruse.
The line between best friendship and a romantic relationship is sometimes thin, especially if one of the parties happens to be a little gay. On MTV's new comedy series Faking It, teens Karma (Katie Stevens) and Amy (Rita Volk) are so close that they call each other before school in the morning, and their mothers know who they're talking to without asking. Their current extracurricular actives include watching Netflix together in their pajamas, but outgoing Karma is looking for more excitement and she thinks she knows how she can find it: by pretending to be a lesbian. When at a school assembly, Lauren announces that Karma and Amy are mocking the gay rights movement, the pair kiss to prove their love is real. The kiss solidifies not only that they're willing to continue the mockery, but also that they don't mind becoming poster children in the process. If Karma can move past her narcissism and Amy can figure herself out without the spotlight on her faux relationship, then there might be a win in this. But if there are more trite jokes about gay women and highlighting the disrespectful Liam as a good guy because he's willing to be friends with a gay man and a feminist, there might not be much worth watching in the future.
