Your post is funny because I’ve been addicted to this show for the past three weekends. And I like it for exactly the same reasons you don’t like it! It’s so cheesy, some of the acting is horrible, some of the characters are annoying, and the storylines (sausage king marries a former call girl) are crazy–I love it. It’s my guilty pleasure. I feel bad that I don’t have cable to watch the upcoming new season.

I LOVE Molly Ringwald and the girl who plays Amy’s sister.

the worst part is the way the characters talk about sex and with whom they talk about sex.  First of all, when you were sixteen did you refer to it as “oral sex” when talking with your friends?  And secondly, who has conversations with their mother saying “I want to have sex!!” Just plain terrible

 

Edit: I too love shows geared towards teenagers and I grew up on 90210 (like literally, my mom loved that show and it started when I was 3).  You should try pretty little liars and the first season of vampire diaries!

Lol, this post made me laugh. I was bored on Netflix a few months ago and decided to watch it. After the first episode I was thinking, gosh, this show is so dumb why should I even watch this? I decided to watch a few more episodes just to see if it got any better, it didn’t and I made fun of it a ton while watching but decided to finish the first season…and the second…and all of what was on Netflix! I knew it was ridiculous but I just couldn’t stop watching! haha I totally got addicted 🙂

Oh, it’s cheesy to the max, but that doesn’t stop me from watching it! I think Amy’s sister and the way she interacts with their dad saves the show 🙂

@stbMohror: That’s exactly what happened with me. Thought it was cheesy, but kept watching and watching until I was staying up until 3 a.m. because I needed to know what happened next.

@Latoya

I know! I always stayed up late to watch it too haha…there’s just something about it!! I was sad once I watched it all too. Hopefully it won’t take long for Netflix to add the next season once it’s finished. My husband made fun of me the entire time but I didn’t care 🙂

It was pretty bad.  I finally realized I didn’t like it when I started wondering what was happening on Jersey Shore because Amy was crying…. AGAIN!!!  Geez, that girl is always crying.  I get why, but even though she is the pregnant teen, she’s not the most interesting character on the show.  My favorite character was her sister and the really slutty girl. Sad.

i used to watch some of this show, probably because it’s on before one i like, but i think it’s really dumb. the acting is really, really bad, the plots are boring…it just sucks. i can’t believe it’s going on like a 4th season. it should have been done after the first season.

I LOVE this show! LOVE! OBSESSED! haha..I honestly can’t wait for the new season to start. Yes, the acting is horrible – really, really bad at times. But I love teen angst, you just can’t stop watching.

So excited for next week! I’m so lame!

@janie-janie: i can’t remember if you don’t actually see the baby until the first episode of the 2nd season, or the last episode of the 1st season. the first season was the only season worth watching, honestly.
