Fun Fact

6 01 2010

Take a minute and consider the names of almost all the teen dramas.

Beverly Hills 90210

Dawson’s Creek

The O.C.

One Tree Hill


Apparently teen drama creators have a thing for titles based on locations. Granted, those locations–Beverly Hills, a–um–creek, Orange County, Tree Hill and, again, Beverly Hills–are (for the most part) integral to the premise of each show.

The lone outcast is Gossip Girl, which easily could’ve been called Upper East Side if it weren’t for the fixation on that never-seen-but-often-heard character also known as Gossip Girl. And, of course, the precedent established by the book series.

Details, details.

You’re right, but don’t forget The Hills! 🙂

Maybe the thing is that the titles suggest places we might like to live. Tho I’m not too sure about living in 90210 if it meant I’d have to diet all the time. 🙂

Well, The Hills isn’t a teen drama so that’s why it wasn’t included. 😉 But it is a good example, especially since it is a spin-off of Laguna Beach, which was made to be the real-life version of The O.C.
