Really...

Really even though the topic of teenage pregnancy is unlikely to interest me i thought i would give this program a whirl, but after hearing the first part of the intro song i gleamed that this show is probably totally retarded.


"Lets fall in love birds can do it so can we" or some such nonsense, birds are driven by instinct to mate in other words they are drawn together by LUST not Love, after the male has mated with the female the in most species the male bird will fly away content with just mating.


That totally retarded line totally put me off the show for ever and the begining of the show did not particularly excite me, but i can see how this show would draw those with less intelligence than the producers of the show.... and how this show got 2 seasons is beyond me, i suppose most people watch TV with there brain in the off position, shown by the popularity of such shows as American idol, Big brother and other such reality shows for a lack of a better word or words...


Yes i am p***ed off with the dumbing down of tv knower days, admittedly shows 30 years ago where not partially mind engaging but 5 to 8 years ago TV was on the hole great house was just starting up we had scrubs which don't get me wrong isn't mind engaging, but is funny and many, many other shows that either where funny or you had to think a little to get what was going on but now we see the axing of shows that need a mind to follow what the hell is going on, this show is only prove of this fact it's too, for crying out loud if you want this kind of garbage pick up 10 love story's and I bet you will find at least one which is equally dreadful.


believe me when I say I LOVE love story's but I can only read or watch once which are good and this just seems like c*** to me but each to there own...

So basically, you posted a comment to say you found this show absolutely ridiculous, because you had a problem with the THEME SONG? Have you ever heard the saying "Don't judge a book by its cover"? My goodness, that is exactly what you are doing. If you'd actually taken the time to watch an episode or two, instead of maybe two minutes of one episode of 10 seconds of the theme song, maybe then you wouldn't sound like a complete ass, whereas right now, you do. (And FYI: eagles -which are BIRDS- mate for life.)
If you have such a problem with TV today, don't watch. But yeah, a lot of people watch TV not for the intellectual appeal (that's what shows like 60 Minutes are for, I suppose) but for the entertainment value, and to judge someone based on what they find amusing and/or entertaining requires a very small minded person. And shows aren't cancelled because they "need a mind to follow what the hell is going on" they're cancelled because of ratings. So if all the shows you like -the ones that require "a mind to follow what the hell is going on"- are getting cancelled, maybe it's because THEY aren't very good, or at least they certainly don't appeal to the masses.
It's a very stupid thing to say that shows like The Secret Life of the American Teenager require viewers "with less intelligence than the producers of the show" because you have no idea who will be drawn to a show like that, because it has nothing to do with levels of intelligence. Besides, the producers are obviously intelligent enough that they've created a show that millions watch, enough so that they got a second season, and will probably get a third. Can you lay claim to that kind of achievement?

I think the song is meant to be sarcastic "birds can do it, we can do it, lets fall in love" Because many teenagers confuse lust with love. So maybe you should think a little harder before you call 20 million people stupid. When you point a finger your pointing 3 back at yourself. think about that dear.

Based on this quote, "believe me when I say I LOVE love story's but I can only read or watch once which are good and this just seems like c*** to me but each to there own..." I can tell that an overabundance of intelligence is not your problem with this show.
sonopiccante and avdaugherty are right-- if you don't like it, fine, but how can you judge a show without watching it? And yes, the theme song is meant to be facetious. They aren't talking about love, they're talking about sex, they're just couching it in terms of love.

Really I couldn't take this post seriously due to the many grammatical and spelling errors. Like bengela said =, and overabundance of intelligence is not your problem.

It's rather annoying that you need to use the word "retarded" to describe a show.
