The highly acclaimed TV series - 'The Secret Life of the American Teenager' (2008-2013) - documents the evermore complicated yet heart warming life of Amy Juergens; a typical high-school student who is characterized by her ambition and musical talent. However, it is after one hormonal-driven night at Band Camp, that she is faced with a responsibility no 15-year-old wants to take; being a teen mom. The audience are taken on a journey with Amy as she confronts her problem and the father of her baby. Written by
I am 15, going on 16 in a few weeks. Being around the same age bracket/grade as most of the characters in this show, I can honestly say it is really, really off. Even the most genuine characters are phony. There are plot holes all over the place, and most things are never explained. Remember Rumer Willis? Who, what, where, when, wtf? Amy's dynamic with everyone just sucks, especially with Ben. According to them, they were in love after like two minutes. (A side note, the world love is tossed around excessively on this show, along with sex, funeral, baby, etc.) If they are so madly in love, why do they seem to hate each other? Another thing that bugs me is how nonchalant the parents are about their young children having "serious' relationships. Just because you are a high schooler does not mean the only thing you think about is sex/omg I need a boyfriend! The whole show is going nowhere, but it has found its place in my TV schedule as comic relief. I'm in too deep now, but if I were you, I would avoid Secret Life at all costs.
