Secret Life of the American Teenager


Did anyone else watch this last night? After seeing the previews for weeks, I was excited about this show. Now that I have watched it, I have mixed feelings. I am curious to know what you all think? Was I the only one who watched it?

Did not watch it, but I have that shirt MOlly Ringwald is wearing! Mine is in green.

I meant to watch this and completely forgot that it came on last night! Hopefully they will rerun it. If so, I'll tell you what I thought.
Hope you are doing well!

Didn't see it because I thought it would freak me out!!!! What was it like?

Mrs. - its probably a good thing you didn't watch it. It freaked me out! It was just weird and I would like to think that not all high school kids are consumed with sex.

I didn't see it but I saw previews for it and I don't understand why teen pregnancy is being so hyped up and glorified all of a sudden! I don't get it!

Gosh darn it, I wanted to watch this but didn't check to DVR because I thought it started next week! That's terrifying though, I wonder what high school will be like when my (future) kids are that age!

I so wanted to see this, and didn't get to! I hope they show it again this week before next week! I love Molly Ringwald!

As a mom with a couple of teens. I totally trust her judgement.

Someday you'll be there.

I saw it. I have to admit I don't think I will tune in again.
Perhaps I am so far removed from the situation that that is what caused me not to care for it.

I DVR'd it, but haven't watched it yet - will let you know my thoughts once I do.

I don't usually watch stuff like that, but I like Mark Derwin from the days when he was a soap star. You have to remember that I'm old.

And not all teenagers are having sex, but who would want to watch a tv show about nice kids?

I saw it and thought it was cute but it is very teeny-bopper. I was surprised that Molly Ringwald was not a better actor and that she was not in but a few tiny scenes.

I'm not sure I would go as far to say the show glorified teen pregnancy though. I think it more shows how the "good girl" can be the girl in a hard situation in life too. That it is not always the "bad kid" who gets into trouble. Or that was my take on it anyway.

I think I was very shelterd though because I didn't know of any teen pregs when I was in high school. I went to a private and religious school and a student would have been asked to leave if they were preggers.
