I tried to keep the TV off today (so I could get my bonus/huge sense of accomplishment), but my monkey brain wanted something to entertain itself in the background while I was paying bills & reading emails and I was curious to know what the kids on the “Secret Life of the American Teenager” were up to. It’s such a strange little show on AMC Family. The general themes are teenage pregnancy, teenage sex, relationships of teenagers with each other and with their parents. It is all wrapped up in a”Disney” type, politically correct/liberal family show with some very corny comedy mixed in. Everyone (teenagers and adults) are wiser and more open than anyone on planet earth. They do stupid stuff , but they also seem to know why they are doing it and how to fix it and then they all analyze it and talk about it excessively. I think the point is to show parents and kids talking about sex and their relationships like it is no big deal so real life people will start talking more and stop making stupid mistakes….but those girls do keep getting pregnant. The characters really are more endearing than I have suggested, which is why they are in my TV family, but it has been relegated to a Tier 2 show. So I don’t get my bonus this week but I did get to “half watch” Amy and her friends go to some bar in NYC called Pajamas (in their Pajamas and it looked more like a Disney set than a bar), Ricky sleep with some random teenager (we don’t see the sex, just a little bit of kissing in bed. The rest is implied) and then text a picture of his baby to his baby mother who was at the bar called Pajamas, and Grace’s new guy try to get in to her pants by suggesting a “dance your pants off party”. (Side note, Grace’s mom – not shown above – always looks quite stylish).
