Teen Angst

in Teen

Teenagers possess the unique ability to blow things in their lives dramatically out of proportion. More often than not, the slightest hiccup in their plans can trigger a stage five meltdown and it is exactly this kind of high drama that has lead to the creation and extreme success of teen drama television shows. Not only do teenagers love drama, older generations even get a kick watching teenagers wage through their early life struggles, especially those involving budding sexuality and peer pressure. Television magnifies the drama tenfold with its plots and no matter how ridiculous some shows become, audiences keep coming back for more. Satellite tv can bring viewers whatever teen drama they desire right into their living room.

Over the years there have been plenty of teen drama television series, but some were far more popular than others. The first spot on the list of the top five teen drama series is "Beverly Hills 90210". The original version ran from 1990 to 2000 and was so hugely popular it has inspired a modern reincarnation that falls flat of the original. Though its plots were often over the top, viewers tuned in religiously to catch all of the drama of these beautiful, wealthy teens. The second show on the list is "The O.C.". Following a similar premise and setting as "90210", the show focused on the interactions between a rebellious kid from the wrong side of the tracks as he is thrown in with the most privileged and sheltered kids possible. Sports have nothing on a good old fashioned rich kid versus poor kid battle.

The third position is occupied by "Dawson's Creek". This show took a completely different approach to the teen drama in that it removed the wealth and glamour surrounding the kids. The show was set in a small town and revealed the intensely complicated relationships that can result when everyone knows one another's name. The show also gave birth to quite a few successful careers for actors Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams, and Joshua Jackson. Fourth on the list is "One Tree Hill". This teen drama also takes place in a small town, following the trials and tribulations of a group of friends and how their lives and relationships change after high school. Satellite tv brings the best in teen drama everywhere.

The final show on the list of the top five teen drama television series is "Gossip Girl". This series returns to the premise of extremely wealthy and privileged kids but places them on the East Coast rather than sunny southern California. The lies, money, and deceit make for some excellent television that might make viewers rethink how "privileged" the upper crust of society may really be. The winding plots of teen dramas require fans to stay up to date with each episode and having a reliable service like http://www.tvbydirect.com/directv-deals/ DirecTV means they will never have to worry about missing a second. Satellite tv can be made even more convenient is someone chooses to opt for a http://www.tvbydirect.com/directv-programming/ Direct TV package.
