I Asked My Mom To Describe My Favorite Teen Dramas — Can You Tell Which Ones She's Referring To?

I've made my mom watch a LOT of teen dramas with me in my day.

Hey everyone, meet my mom!

Margaret Marder

Yes, she's adorable. To clarify, that's her on the left.

I have always been obsessed with teen dramas, and my mom has often been roped into watching with me. So I decided to ask her to describe/review them for me! Can you figure out which teen drama she's talking about?

Fox
  1. "I love the clothes, but it's unrealistic and there's no way they're teenagers."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Gossip Girl

    I think my dad liked this one better, TBH.

    Via The CW
  2. "Basically the same as Gossip Girl but in California. Or, I guess not. Not as rich."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    90210

    Mostly she just remembers the original version.

    Via The CW
  3. "Oh a lot of people talk about that one and say it's bad and shouldn't be on."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    13 Reasons Why

    I don't think she's actually seen this one.

    Via Netflix
  4. "Isn't that the one where they go to school on the beach? Or am I thinking of Zoey 101?"

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The O.C.

    I'm pretty sure she actually was thinking of Zoey 101, but hey, she got it sort of right.

    Via Fox
  5. "Gothy, on the dark side but not evil. I always felt like it was nighttime, and they were in a back alley somewhere in a club."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Skins

    Mostly I watched this show after my mom went to bed, except once I showed my mom a single episode that I had pre-approved to be the least scandalous.

    Via E4
  6. "I loved the 'You're welcome' girl. This one was probably the most accurate portrayal of what it can be like in high school."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Awkward.

    I think my mom mostly knows this one, because I always use this GIF in the family group chat.

    Via MTV
  7. "Artsy adults pretending to be kids. Fun music, but I didn't think any of the relationships were real."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Glee

    Like the rest of us, my mom now pretends not to like Glee when she definitely watched a ton of episodes willingly.

    Via Fox
  8. "Hot vampires. I did like the love triangle."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The Vampire Diaries

    I think she just liked this one, because we both loved Ian Somerhalder.

    Via The CW
  9. "Ohh, similar but better. Love the bromance. The special effects with their powers were cooler than other shows."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Teen Wolf

    This one was my mom's favorite — she loved Stiles and Scott.

    Via MTV
  10. "That one had very sweet relationships and I like anything with sports teams and the music was good. That was one of my favorites."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    One Tree Hill

    This was my mom's second favorite.

    Via The CW
  11. *visibly shuddered* "That was ridiculous. She wasn't believable as a teen or a mother. Where even was the dad? It wasn't realistic."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    The Secret Life of the American Teenager

    She REALLY didn't like this one.

    Via ABC Family
  12. "Murder mystery. I really found them foolish. And they wasted a lot of time so then it got boring."

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Pretty Little Liars

    She's right, TBH.
