I'm not surprised. I like the show in the beginning but its gotten bad, really bad. When it first started The Secret Life of The American Teenager was a story of a young girl getting pregnant too young, a story too many of us know all too well. As it progressed the show became almost outrageously farfetched. With Ben's dad marrying a simple minded but lovable hooker, Ricky's drug addict ex-con mother moving in with his baby mamas family, Ben and Adrian getting pregnant married miscarrying and eventually divorcing. Not saying that these things can't happen but its somewhat like jumping a school of sharks. My high school had its share of drama like every high school but the occurrences in this show were just unrealistic. After watching this show for a while I quickly grew tired of Ashley's melodrama, of Ben's naivety, of Grace's self-righteousness, of Ricky's self-pitying attitude, and especially of Anne and George. How many parents would actually let their 16 year old daughter ride around the country with her boyfriend. All in all I think this show failed to deliver and make a social impact on the issues facing typical teenagers. This show, in my simple opinion, did not take advantage of the platform they were given on social issues and for that reason I'll be sad to see it go but I'm happy to see it end.
