this show is great

I really like this show i think it pretty acurrately portrays the way high school is for most kids. There are parts that are kinda corny but that just makes the show that much better. I like that it actually talks about the issues that most high schoolers deal with on a daily basis. Maybe if more adults watched this show they would be able to relate better to there kids.

Maybe there's a generation gap, since it's been over a decade since I graduated from HS, but I don't see this show as being very realistic at all. Sure, there are believable moments, but most of this is just too dramatic, and too pat. In my opinion, Amy is perhaps the closest character to reality, as she doesn't know who she is, and changes with every episode, trying to be an adult, but failing miserably. All of the other chracters seem too self assured, and run too much to stereotype. I enjoy the show, don't get me wrong, but I don't see it as mired in reality.
P.S. I think Molly Ringwald made a way more convincing pregnant teen. Any teens who watch this show should rent "For Keeps", and see Anne Juergens as an Amy.
