Difficulty: 0

- I know this one, too! Holy Hanna.

- I'm just knowing all my teen shows today.

- Is that a penis?

♪ (upbeat intro) ♪

- (FBE) So today, we're gonna see how well you know

modern teen shows. - Modern teen shows.

Interesting. - Oh, no.

I usually leave the room when that stuff comes on.

- I watch TV, so I'm hoping I will do

a little better than the music on this one.

- I might do okay, because I have teens.

She's in her room a lot these days, so I don't know.

- Are any of the teen shows happen to be Bubble Guppies?

Because I have a two-year-old who watches Bubble Guppies

all the time. - (FBE) No. (chuckles)

- I'm gonna do horrible.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- (FBE) So here we go. Here's your first show.

Do you know this one?

- I am not sure about this one.

- I haven't seen this. It looks pretty cool,

like it's based in the '50s.

- I've seen this one before. I don't know it.

- Ah! (claps) Riverdale!

- Oh yeah, Riverdale. - I know what this is,

because I actually watched the first season. That's Riverdale.

- (FBE) So this is the poster for... - Oh, Riverdale!

Okay, I know my daughter watches it.

- Oh, goodness! I had heard of this so many times,

but I never watched it. - I'm a fan, you guys.

And I was a fan of the original comics.

- I have not started the second season yet,

but so far, I like it. And then when I found out

it was, you know, based on the comics,

I was even more intrigued.

- (FBE) So Riverdale is based on the characters

from Archie Comics. The show centers around Archie,

Betty, Veronica, Jughead, and other characters

you may remember from the comics.

- That is so awesome, you know? 'Cause who would've thought

to bring that back, right? - I think that's good.

You know, just bringing back the old school. I always like that.

- It's a nod to my generation that grew up with Archie Comics,

but it's really very smart and funny.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- (FBE) Do you know this one? - Ooh. Mm-mm.

- "If you're listening, you're too late."

I haven't seen this one either.

- Oh, wait! Ooh! 13 Reasons Why.

- I know this one, too! Holy Hanna.

13 Reasons Why.

- Ohh, is this 13 Reasons Why?

- I've seen a couple of episodes from it,

and I know my daughter watched every single episode.

- Netflix is constantly telling me I need

to watch this show. I'm not 16.

(chuckles) No. I'm a 33-year-old man.

I'm not gonna watch 13 Reasons Why.

- (FBE) This is the poster for... - 13 Reasons Why.

Wow, I got a lot of catching up to do.

- That show I watched with my daughter,

and it was really just really well done

and brought up really important conversations.

- (FBE) 13 Reasons Why is about a teenage girl

who committed suicide. A box of cassette tapes

shows the 13 reasons why she ended up her life.

- Whoa. And that's a series? That's pretty deep.

- Suicide needs to be highlighted in a different way to me.

I just feel like it just glamorizes

and normalizes it. - I had very mixed feelings

about it, but then I thought it was such a courageous program,

because it really reflected the real problems

that teenagers face nowadays.

- I just can't imagine being a teenager

in the era of social media and how difficult that must be,

so I'm happy they address it. I know it's controversial,

I know there's pros and cons, but I think it's always better

to talk about it.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- (FBE) Are you familiar with this one?

- No. - No, I have no clue.

- (chuckles) I don't know this one.

- It looks like a cool family, but I haven't seen it.

- ABC Family original. The Fosters.

- Oh, um... This is... Don't tell me.

Oh! The Fosters. - The Fosters.

- Oh, it's The Fosters, you guys.

I'm just knowing all my teen shows today.

- (FBE) This is the poster for... - The Fosters.

Oh, I have not heard about this before.

- Are they all foster kids?

What? And the two moms?

Wow. - You see all kinds

of different families now with the foster parents

and stuff and that's just a reflection of reality.

- I'd like to thank my daughter for... (laughs)

Anything that's kind of soap-y and melodramatic,

we are both totally hooked on, and The Fosters is no exception.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- (FBE) Do you know this one? - Marvel, a Hulu original.

Mm, no. I haven't seen this one either.

- I'm not sure my kids even watch Hulu.

I don't have Hulu, so I have no clue.

- I do know that one, and I don't watch it.

- Is this that Marvel one? Is it The Misfits?

- The Runaways. - The Runaways.

Me and my daughters have started watching this show,

and we're already intrigued. We're in the first two--

just the first two shows, but yeah, we're digging it.

- (FBE) So this is the poster for... - Runaways. Wow.

Never heard of it. - They look like they're

some superheroes or something like that.

- I don't know much about it, but it sounds amazing.

It sounds like I would get hooked on it in three seconds flat.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- (FBE) Do you know this show? - Oh god. No.

- I don't know this one.

- Ooh, yeah.

This one, I don't.

- Is that a penis? (laughs) What is it called?

The Deez? What is this?

- I definitely have heard about it,

but I don't know the show.

- I'm not knowing the name of the show,

but I've definitely seen it,

and I definitely recognize those characters.

- American Vandal is supposed to be a teen show?

- (FBE) It takes place in high school.

- I hope my teenagers don't watch shows like American Vandal.

- (FBE) So this is a poster for... - American Vandal.

Like vandalism? - My peers are like,

"You've gotta see it!" So this is transcending

the teen programming, and I have just heard it's amazing

and well worth watching.

- One of the best-acted shows in television history.

They actually show what teens are like in high school.

- (FBE) So American Vandal is a mockumentary

that is a satire of Making a Murderer and Serial.

It centers around a student being rightly or falsely blamed

for drawing phallic images on staff cars.

- Oh, right. And they are trying to f--

Ohhh! I just saw it! Oh good-- (laughs)

- Ohh my god. (laughs) It's a string [bleep].

I think I have to watch this.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- (FBE) This one is technically college,

but I thought it fit, so do you know it?

- This is... no. (laughs)

- No, I haven't seen it.

- I recognize her, but I don't know the show.

- I heard about this one. This is--

It's from the girl from Black-ish.

- Black-ish is the show, and then she's on...

Oh my gosh. What is it called?

Grown-ish! - This is...

Grown-ish? - It's Grown-ish.

- (FBE) This is the poster for Grown-ish.

- Okay. I heard of Black-ish,

but I've never heard of Grown-ish.

- I'm a fan of Black-ish,

so I figure I have to give this a go.

- I've seen it, and I'm not a fan.

You know the typical situations that college people go through,

and it's just so played out. I just was very disappointed.

♪ (quirky interlude) ♪

- (FBE) This show technically had its finale in 2017,

but I couldn't resist putting it in,

because I used to be a fan. Do you know it?

- Uhh.. no. I do not know it.

- I don't know it. - Something liars.

Little Liars, Big Liars, Big Little Liars, Little Big Liars.

- God. Four girls, um... (growls) Pretty Liars?

- It's not Pretty Little Liars.

- Pretty Little Liars? - That one is Pretty Little Liars.

- This is Pretty Little Liars.

- (FBE) This is the poster for... - Pretty Little Liars.

Ohhh. Now, this one I've heard about.

Both of my kids watch it.

- I tried it. To be totally honest, I did not love it,

I did not follow it, and now it's over.

- I thought it was good. You know, I like drama.

- I have not seen it. I think it was because I was totally

sucked into something else at the time,

and I just sort of set it on the backburner.

And I might have to revisit. I'm sure I can binge it now, right?
