The Secret Life of the American Teenager is a teen drama television series. It is set in modern day high school through the life of a teenage girl dealing with adversities. Prominent stars include Shailene Woodley, Daren Kagasoff, and Francia Raisa. It is rated TV-14 for sexual content. This show is no longer airing on TV but can be found on Netflix.

15 year-old Amy Jergens finds out she is pregnant after a one night stand with someone she barely knows. The show focuses on the family and school struggles Amy faces throughout her time in high school.

The show has a very good concept of warning teenagers about teen pregnancy and how to cope with drama in high school. It talks about how to have safe sex or just stay abstinence until marriage. It shows how a young woman can overcome adversity, get a job, finish high school, support her family, and continue on to college.

However, the acting and overall execution of this concept ruins the entire show. It seems as if people are always arguing and are never pleased with the way things are going. The actors are very bad about presenting the dialogue given and the plot has too many things going on at one moment to be able to follow along.

My overall reaction is that the show is poorly done. There is so much more that can be done with this show and to spread awareness but all that was produced is a tv show with bad acting. This show is good for teenagers who have just started high school. Parents who do not want to have the talk with their children can just tell them to watch this show. I give this show a 2.5 out of 5.
