They are usually kept away from “real life” and have a school system that seems to be the absolute antithesis of the real world. 90210 is an American teen drama television series, produced by CBS production. The series revolves around several students who are facing different problems In live such as drinking. 90210 is a franchisees of the original version bevery hills. 1. As long as the show features teenage girls who are loose and slutty, and contains a lot of drama, there will be people to watch it.

Does this mean that as consumers we want to critizsizze by relating our real life to TV unrealistic dramas.
