Customer Reviews

Okay, seriously...enough already!

Whether or not it was their intention, the writers are leading audiences to believe that teenagers are stupid, selfish, and mindless young people with a complete inability to think for themselves. They have no lives, no interests, no direction to speak of, and the adults are even more of a joke. It's one thing if you're an adult who views this show as a guilty pleasure and has enough intelligence to laugh about the situations presented, but what about the teens who are watching this? It just makes me sad that producers like Brenda Hampton believe that this is the best television they can provide for today's young people. The idea that this is a "cautionary tale" for teenagers is just plain BS, because the characters have been making the exact same mistakes over and over since the pilot episode, and they show no interest in changing. If you're trying to set an example for kids, the first step is, well, setting an example, rather than writing in circles around fictional characters who essentially have no redeeming qualities and are nothing short of a train wreck. At first, I was appalled at this series, but then I thought, well, maybe it's not supposed to be taken seriously. Maybe I just need to take a chill pill and treat it as the satire that it clearly is. But now that the show has reached a fifth season and shows no signs of slowing down, I'm just sickened. It's not funny anymore and should have been cancelled LONG ago. Maybe it's just me, but our media needs producers/screenwriters who respect teenagers as people and are at least willing to portray them as honest, true-to-life individuals. I'm not saying that they should be painted as perfect, but come on--how long are we going to keep glorifying teen sex and pregnancy? Give our teenagers something to watch that has a real storyline, relatable characters, and hey, maybe even a cast that knows how to act. That never hurts.

Best Show

i really liked the first episode here. Amy and RIcky FINALLY got married. i have always wanted them together and they finally did and now they are married. this is my favorite show ever although i could do with them taking about gay people less.

best show

I love this show I have watched it since season 1 and i love how some of the characters have grown (ricky). I believe this teen show is unlike any other. As someone stated below they said they are "glorifying teen sex and pregnancy" and they need to give a "real storyline". I am not a teen or a parent. I am 22. And I love my adult tv shows but still love my kid and teen shows as well. And this BY FAR the most realistic show I have seen on teenagers. I dont know how much more real it could get. Other teen shows like Icarly and victorious , to name a few, have a few real situations but most situations are unrealistic or childish or random and made just for entertainment. Which I like these shows but The Secret Life gives you something completely different from the overplayed teen shows. This show is realistic and talks about subjects that many teen shows are too scared to bring up and talk about such as pregnancy, sexual orientation and much much more. It also doesn't show the cliche perfect parents but parents with real faults getting caught in lies, cheating, divorce etc. Amy the main character is constantly complaining about her life as a teen mom and ben and adrian lose there child and you see how difficult it is for them as well. I could go on and on with examples so I dont see how that is considered glorifying teen pregnancy. I want to give the writers and big thank you for making a show that shows all kinds of trouble teens and adults go through and not being scared of talking about issues. Me as a teen and many many other teens have gone through these same troubles so we can all relate one way or another.
