Yea the show was very interesting i cried my heart out. i felt so close to ben and adrian like a close friend. i have been watching this show since episode 1. but at the same time the writers had to do something to make more viewers wanna watch i will never stop watching this show secret life cast is my bestfriends
Person you are so right. It is fiction. I did laugh when the writer said, " kill a baby just to shake up a one hour drama." Way to give part of this discussion a little perspective:)
They already had a teen pregnancy resulting in motherhood. Also, Ben and Adrian only got married because of the baby. Pluck the baby out of the equation, and I bet it would be really fun to figure out where to take the characters. Adoption just isn't a plausible outcome for their situation, plus that's just too soft-core. This show could use a bit more tragedy. Especially tragedy not brought onto the characters by their own actions. (Also, they didn't actually kill a baby. I don't know if you're aware, but this is a FICTIONAL program.)
I watch the show because I am a youth pastor and it covers many issues teens deal with and let's face it they are watching it and talking about it. Why not take the opportunity to talk to them. It was apparent what may happen and - had a hard time with that because 3 months ago one of our teens gave birth and dealt with a death 3 days later. After seeing firsthand what she went through(test, poking, prodding, praying and mourning)I was relieved they did not offer much detail. I know the writers were trying to show not every pregnancy ends well without too much. Now the thing is will they potray the "ever after" they have created. We will see.
i dont watch this show but i did watch this one. this was sad. i did not cry. but it was emotional.
this was really sad i was starting to cry because i didnt know what was going to happen. i like adrian and ben. but, i never thought that this was going to happen to them:( . so this is the only show of the part that i hae cry in. and if it wasn't going to be like this i would still cry. So, last night i did feel bad!.
i agree with the reviewer the writers didnt have to kill a baby and set up this plot twist it was emotionla no i did NOT cry but it was emotional and mysterious and now im afraid for Ben he is not that strong in life and now this comes he is shattered beyond hope adrian is a strong girl she will suffer but eventually come back i think however as i said before Ben has been lost!
This show is awful. The plot is unrealistic and the acting so terrible I have trouble watching an entire episode. I'm glad the baby was stillborn because it put some sort of interest while showing that happy endings are not always around the corner.
I think this episode was awesome. They wanted to show that not every pregnancy goes well, there is always something that can happen during a perfect pregnancy. From the preview you can kind of assume something was going to happen to Adrien or the baby. There are many things that can happen during the birthing process and kids need to know that its not just rainbows and butterfly's having a kid at a young age. It could be them.
Also, i do not know what to think about the preview for next week but since the begin of the series I've hoped Amy and Ricky would get together and if something happens where it gets messed up, i will no longer be watching anymore. There's been too much with the 4kids(Amy,Ricky Adrien and Bed). Ben and Adrien need to not mess things up for Amy and Ricky!
I have watched the show since the beginning. Although I have found some of the dialog to be a little cheesy at times I have continued to watch because of the subject matter that is raised.I think that the concept of the show is to give parents as well as teens a idea of how to open a dialog about sex and relationships. I also don't want to see Ricky, Amy, Ben and Adrian to switch back to their former relationships in any way.
As a mother who has been in Adrian's position, I feel that it was done in a tasteful manner.There are those that think they needed to see Adrian and Ben hold their still born child but I think that would have gone too far. That is a very private moment that not everyone can understand if they have not lost a child.
I think that Adrian asking Amy to be with her is a natural reaction.But the writers will have to remember that Adrian and Amy's similarity in their situation stops there. In a realistic situation Adrian may come to resent how Amy's life seems to have all come together while hers is falling apart.I am getting way ahead of the script though.
I think that this is a part of pregnancy that is important for viewers to see. Too many times have I seen shows where a mother has an abortion or gives the baby up for adoption (the end).The fact of the matter is that there are babies that die in-utero. And it is a very painful thing to experience.But it is a part of life.
Yes this subject matter will raise the rating for a time being but I did not feel like it was a cheap ploy to get people to cry. And for the record I did bawl my eyes out to the "Dawson's Creek" soundtrack because I could totally relate.It happened to be on the radio when I went home from the hospital. Pure coincidence that struck home none the less. Bad, unexplainable things happen. The ending lesson, I hope, is that somehow we find a way to continue even when it seems that we are being knocked on our tails time and time again.
I would like to see the show throw out more challenging issues as the kids mature.
