Kids Today: Same old, Same old

Greetings! The thing we've been waiting for has finally arrived: the second season of 16 and Pregnant started...and I missed it! Where have I been? I've been a devout watcher of Teen Mom, and I was really looking forward to the new season of 16 and Pregnant, and then I just completely forgot about it until I was channel surfing last night after LOST and happened upon some back-to-back rerun episodes of the new season. There have already been two new episodes. I feel like such a bad television viewer.

I tried to watch one episode last night, and I found my interest quickly waning. The girls seemed the same as last season, the boyfriends were still total douche bags, and the parents were...less than supportive. Maybe I was just mentally tired after watching LOST and couldn't get into it. Or maybe...if you've seen one season of 16 and Pregnant, you've seen them all.

I'm not ready to give up on this show yet. I'm going to watch some on Saturday morning while I eat my breakfast and get ready to start my day. The series really seems appropriate for a Saturday morning program (a little light entertainment...nothing life changing like, you know, childbirth or anything).

I'll report back next week with a better review. Hopefully a little distance from Jack, Kate, and the gang will put me in the correct frame of mind to watch teenage girls become mothers. I'll be more sympathetic and emotionally involved when I'm not thinking "Oh, boo hoo, you're having a baby. At least you aren't on a crazy island, and there are no Others waiting to steal the baby once he's born (or are there?)." I'm starting to think that nothing can really follow LOST. I need to spend the rest of the night in silence, contemplating what I think I know about my own existence.

Or else spend the evening reading Sweet Little Lies: An L.A. Candy Novel!! So far, much like in the last book, nothing has happened. I'll let you know when something does.

Speaking of nothing happening: I've heard a few complaints (very few, that stick out from the mostly rave reviews) regarding my Avatar fan fiction. Some of you have said that "nothing has happened yet." To which I say: doi. Did anything happen during the entire movie? And you loved it! Keep reading in the hopes that something does, someday, happen.
