Phenomenal teen drama series you wouldn't want your kids to see
'TGIS', as they say, is the juvenile TV series that started it all: a group of something-teens belonging to above-average class families facing the challenges of growing up.
The original group composed of Red Sternberg, Angelu De Leon, Bobby Andrews, etc. was the most popular. The TV show reached the summit during their stay, and the plot and storyline fell apart after their departure. 'TGIS' was so popular, the enemy channel came up with their own teen show, but mostly the plot line and characterizations of that show were copied from this one. However, as time went along, cast members passed and so did the show's popularity. Eventually the 'TGIS' was replaced by another teen show, but it never came close to the phenomenon that is 'TGIS'.
The 'TGIS' storyline started from solving simple teenage problems to complex adolescent situations such as teenage pregnancy, premarital sex, etc. The show also usually dealt with teenage secrecy, and the misfortune comes when the kids on the show try to solve complex problems by themselves without adult supervision. Thank the heavens for the censorship board and they came up with the 'Parental Guidance' logo on the screen.
Saturday afternoons became the major teen TV spot for a couple of years, and we have 'TGIS' to thank for that.
