Video Killed the Radio

I'll be the first to admit, I enjoy trashy teen-drama television shows. My nasty little habit all began with the ORIGINAL 90210 and Melrose Place.

When I eventually became a teenager I was an avid Dawson's Creek fanatic. Don't you just here the music playing...
I don't want to wait for our lives to be over, will it be yes or will it be sorry?
Oh, the teen angst of being rich and living in Cape Cod, MA. Dawson, Joey, Pacey, and the rest of the white privileged "underprivileged" characters. Makes me wanna shed a tear. But like everyone else I grew up moved to college and realized that Hofstra did not harbor half these f-ing people. $hit, not even close.

But between then and now, I've picked up that dirty little habit again by anticipating the CW's Monday night line up. Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill.

Lawd, Jesus, save me now!!!!

What can I say, I'm a sucker for teen smut.

Now I could sit and blog a $hit load of jokes for days about Gossip Girl and the fact that viewers clearly watch this damn show to listen to Chuck Bass's perverted a$$. Or I could $hit on how every new character that's been introduced on One Tree Hill just resembles a different version of the main characters. No really they do, it's absurd.

For example why does Lucas and Peyton's ex boyfriend look exactly alike. I mean, what point are you trying drive home to the f-ing viewer that while Peyton was off trying to sell her a$$ in Cali that she shacked up with someone who reminded her of Lucas. God dammit, could the producers be anymore original.

Or the annoying fact that Nathaniel and the rest of the Tree Hillers needs to stop obsessing over 'Q' so much in this damn seasons storyline. If y'all wanted the Negro on the show, why the fu*k did y'all kill him off in the first place. $hit, he's like in every friggin' episode.

And as for Nate's son, I just about had it with his damn Jerry Maguire, Jonathan Lipnicki, a$$. I'm so damn cute and smart, and love my bunny wabbit.... makes me wanna puke.

Perhaps, this is what test screening results have shown, that these plots, twists and turns are what the audience wants to see. I'm not going to lie, it's definitely keeping me glued to next weeks shenanigans.
