The Weirdest Teen Shows On TV
Your teenage niece is enjoying some super confusing television.
"The Secret Life of The American Teenager"
WTF Moment: Religious high schooler Grace finally decides to lose her virginity, only to learn as she was angering god with her sexcapades her father was hurtling to his death on a plane crash.
WTF Moment: Michelle, thinking, she's grabbing a hair spray can backstage during The Nutcracker, accidently maces all the dancers in the face, then herself. This raises a number of questions. Why was she spraying hair spray directly at their faces? Why was her first instinct when she heard their cries of pain to spray it directly into her face? Wouldn't carrying a can of hair spray and a can of mace be a little cumbersome?
"Switched at Birth"
WFT Moment: Bay decides to enter a program that allows hearing kids with deaf parents or siblings (or biological daughters of adoptive parents?) to attend an all deaf high school. The hearing kids are bullied and ostracized, and to combat the hate Bay creates a sign saying "We hear and we're here."
"The Lying Game"
WTF moment: So Sutton's adoptive father, is really Sutton and Emma's biological father, and their biological mother went to school with Sutton's adoptive mother, who's name is Annie but now goes by Rebecca.
WTF Moment: Since it is a fantasy show things like scaly mutant monsters of rage have to be accepted, but there's still plenty of crazy in Scott's high school existence, like a bunch of teenagers casually going to a rave on a school night.
"The Carrie Diaries"
The WTF moment: High school junior Carrie takes a boring internship in NYC and almost immediately meets up with a magazine editor who simply must photograph her bag, invites her to a swanky party, and gives her a stylish dress to wear. Anyone who's seen "The Devil Wears Prada" knows this is nuts.
