Why must I be a teenager in love?

South of Nowhere, created by Thomas W. Lynch, is an original series that follows Degrassi at 8:30 and is in a similar mold. The show, now in its second season, is even more sex-centric than Degrassi — hedonistic entertainment that lacks moral messaging, though it makes up for that by dealing with one girl’s sexual-identity crisis, whereas most televised gay teens tend to be boys.
