Let's talk about sex On Everwood, the WB's family drama about life in a small Colorado town, Ephram (played by Gregory Smith) has been in love with Amy (Emily VanCamp) since the show's first episode in the fall of 2002. Their tumultuous journey to coupledom spanned the show's first two seasons, which corresponded with their sophomore and junior years in high school. The pair faced many obstacles, most of them resulting from the fact that Amy's boyfriend, Colin, was in a coma. Finally, at the end of last season, Amy and Ephram made it through the wilderness and began dating. Last night, in the parlance of teens everywhere, they did it.
Since 1991, when Brenda lost her virginity with Dylan at the spring dance on Beverly Hills, 90210, teenagers have been having sex on television. At the time, the subject matter was so controversial that the 90210 writers created a pregnancy scare in the next episode, which caused Brenda to realize she wasn't ready for a sexual relationship. Yet Brenda and Dylan did conceive that night at the dance: Their child is the teen soapand where there are school-age children, there are virgins about to be deflowered. In the past year alone, teenage characters have lost their virginity on Summerland, Veronica Mars, Degrassi: The Next Generation, Dead Like Me, Life As We Know It, The OC, One Tree Hill, 7th Heaven, and Gilmore Girls. That's, like, a lot.
So that explains why the antenna is always on the floor
And why do you let your children? We don't.
"So . . . Why did you watch?
And why do you let your children? We don't."
Don't watch it. Don't have children. Thought it was interesting.
Geez, with that title, I thought you were going to brag, or something.
Sorry - /sarcasm
Duuuude! This thread is so "not what I'm looking for." And where the hell's this friggin' White Castle, already?(!)
