'16 and Pregnant' is on this week's Must List. What's on yours?

Posted on

My Must List is rejoicing this week with the news that MTV has picked up my favorite new show, 16 and Pregnant, for a second season. The docu-series follows teenagers approaching motherhood as they deal with their new-found responsibilities. Though it could have turned out an exploitative mess, 16 and Pregnant is handled with the same fair touch as my all-time favorite MTV series, True Life. It’s more a realistic portrayal of tough issues (well, as realistic as you can get for a pop culture-centric cable channel) than Juno: The Series (despite the cutesy cartoon graphics). At times it can even get a little too real (um, I didn’t exactly need to see the labor), but I guess that’s the whole point.

In case you haven’t seen it, watch the latest episode of the show below, then tell us: What’s on your Must List this week, PopWatchers? List up to three items from current TV/movies/music/books/games/online. Don’t forget your e-mail address, in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is Thursday, July 2 at noon ET.
