Do you enjoy watching beautiful people cry about their problems? Clear some space on your DVR and put the next few episodes of House of Cards on the back burner. You’ve got some serious binge-watching to do.

High school is hard for anyone, and yet television is the one place that can make us feel lucky we don’t have the weight of the world, old-money familial expectations or supernatural super powers on our shoulders. The last 25 years have seen highly addicting soap operas for the teenage set–as dangerous to one’s mental health as Jessie Spano’s caffeine pills. These shows are usually delivered in prime-time, with accompanying soundtracks to deepen your connection, and then-unknown guest stars whose eventual stardom will justify those past viewing decisions.

We were captivated by their lives, hurt when they hurt and meticulously kept track of the various pregnancies, infidelities and spur-of-the-moment charity balls.

Beverly Hills, 90210, its younger sister of the same zip code, The O.C. and Gossip Girl saw success by exploring the luxurious lives of the children of the one-percent, while making those of us who took the bus to school wish we had access to a personal driver. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Smallville, Roswell and The Vampire Diaries revel in fantasy and the supernatural, adding more serious issues to their characters’ plate than whether or not the underdog will be crowned Homecoming Queen. Degrassi had Drake before he was rapping about poor etiquette. While Freaks and Geeks, Gilmore Girls and My So-Called Life are dramatic depictions of high school days, they’re a little too earnest (in a good way!). Thus, the shows we chose to celebrate are the ones that take pride in their camp, usually have an older female character looking to feel young again with the most popular/eligible guy in school and never met sexy promotional stills they didn’t like. Relive the best days of your teenage-viewing life with our list of the greatest teen soaps above, and let us know your personal favorites in the comments.

  • Despite the fact that social media once gave us a front seat to her antics, Amanda Bynes has returned to Twitter. As the actress continues recovering after being treated for mental illness, she updated her profile and it appears she deleted many of the tweets that reflected her past state. All of that behavior may be behind her, but at least she feels strong enough to still reach out to her fans! [The Hollywood Gossip]
  • With Fifty Shades Of Grey still in production, will the second and third books in the trilogy also be adapted for the big screen? [MTV News]

It was a big night for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Brad looked dapper in a Tom Ford Tuxedo and Angelina looked elegant in a Elie Saab metallic silver gown. Pitt – who was a producer and had a cameo in the film – accepted the Best Picture Oscar for 12 Years a Slave.

He said, “Thank you all. Thank you for this incredible honor you bestowed on our film tonight. I know I speak for everyone standing behind me that it has been an absolute privilege to work on Solomon’s story. And we all get to stand up here tonight because of one man who brought us all together to tell that story. And that is the indomitable Mr. Steve McQueen.”

Speaking backstage to reporters – Pitt shared a less glamorous moment earlier in the day.

According to the NY Daily News he said, “I cleaned up dog poop today. In my bedroom.”

After the awards the couple went to celebrate at Ago restaurant.
