The Not-So-Secret Camp of Secret Life

Secret Life of the American Teenager may not be aesthetically campy, with boas and glitz, but the quotes are definitely over the top. The television is basically a PSA for safe sex; however, the show’s language is very sexualized. The show seems to take the horrible dialogue too “seriously, but cannot be taken altogether seriously because it is “too much”” (Sontage, 7).  Even with the incredibly repetitive dialogue, Secret Life of the American Teenager is still wildly popular, definitely falling under the category of a melodramatic show that is “good because it is awful” (Sontage).
