Our Teen Special TV club is happening tomorrow at 7.30pm. On the off chance you’ve got nothing to do this evening and you want to get in the mood for teenage feelings, here are some suggested episodes that we will probably talk about.
Also, this post pre-supposes that you have a Netflix account, because it’s 2015 and also, you like TV.
Buffy – Becoming. We talked about this one (two) before, I don’t want to bum you out, but it definitely features a lot of the tropes and themes of Teen TV, and also it’s BRILLIANT.
Friday Night Lights – Pilot. Perfect Teen TV set up. Oh! The establishing shots. Fusing small town americana with John Hughes, this is must see Katims!
Life Unexpected – Pilot. I’ve picked the pilot from this list, because hardly anyone bothered with Life, Unexpected even though it was GREAT (this show filled the Parenthood shaped hole in my heart, midseason) Lux is one of my favourite teen tv characters, and also Austin Butler was a dreamboat here before he showed up in the (actually really underrated) Carrie Diaries.
That’s clearly enough TV to watch in one evening, so I’m off, and will hopefully see you tomorrow at The Three Johns!
