Despite their friendship, Bryson rejects her offer to go to the prom and makes Liz want to forget.
But in the Season 1 finale, Bryson finally confesses his feelings to Liz.
The Los Angeles Times asserts that the show "is quasi-reality -- real people, in their real environment, leading lives that are being in some way dramatized" and that the show "flirts with documentary but intersperses scenes of high-school hallway conversations".
Liz herself has confirmed that there are multiple scenes that are 'planned', citing the scene in 'Liz's Got Talent (Part 1)' where Liz dresses as a superhero and in 'Summer of Suck' where Taylor Terry is shown in front of a black screen, but the events and relationships are true.
My Life as Liz is a mockumentary-style American comedy television series that centers on the life of Liz Lee, a misfit high-school senior living in a small town in Texas. My Life as Liz uses the camera-work and editing typical of reality television.
The series was not renewed for a third season, and the series finale aired on May 3, 2011.
Season one shows Liz's journey through her senior year in high school, and her struggles with her enemy Cori Cooper.
Season two is set in New York with Liz adjusting to old and new friends.
Their friendship gradually gets stronger as he gives Liz support during her high school talent show, even playing guitar alongside Liz to make her less nervous when performing.
The Texas city Liz lives in is a rapidly growing city of over 35,000 residents.
The show targets isolated scenes repeatedly to hide this truth and leaves something to be desired in the lack of diversity.
It was in New York when she met Louis, a possible boyfriend when Bryson was dishonest with her in "The Morning After".
Colin "Sully" Sullivan Liz's sidekick and best friend.
It's revealed in "The ABC's of Friendship" that he secretly likes Liz but will not take the chance of asking her out; he fears it might jeopardize their great friendship.
