Addicted to teen TV shows
Mon, 02-25-2013 - 12:38pm

I have always considered myself a pretty well grounded woman but I have begun to wonder if I don't have some kind of inner issue that needs to be dealt with. I love tv shows that are generally geared towards teens like Pretty Little Liar, Mom at 16, and Glee. I find myself secretly watching them and and then I surf the internet to look for discussions about them. I once mentioned to one of my friends about Pretty Little Liar and she looked at me like I had horns in my head and asked me why on earth I would be watching a show for teens. Please tell me I am not the only adult that watches these kind of shows.

I'm 55 & I watch Glee with my son & like it.  I also used to secretly like Gossip Girl.  I really don't think there's anything wrong with it.

Well ill be. I dont see anything at all with watching teen shows. I watch glee all the time with my daughters and we love it. Sort of reminds me of being in school
