Is Gordo the Wisest Teen Ever?

Gordo has always been a fan favorite. We loved watching him, Lizzie, and Miranda navigate the choppy waters of adolescence during the show’s heyday but at the time, we did not fully appreciate Gordo for the genius he was. Re-watching the show as our older, more seasoned selves, it’s clear: Gordo might be the wisest teen ever. Honestly.
