Whoa, welcome to the hormonal monsoon season.
Slap parties. Classroom sex. Toilet quickies. Unplanned, unwanted, undue pregnancies. Cyclones of oestrogen and testosterone that blow hot dust into the eyes of silly adults (as a member, I can tell we're all silly) who tune in to watch the super-hit teen series. The gale started on Wednesday, when the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) dressed itself up as a watchdog and barked, or at least growled, at Hormones The Series, in which teenagers behave as teenagers behave, and speak as teenagers speak, and suffer as teenagers suffer. It's not always nice, the things they do to each other and to themselves, but still nicer than 99.83% of all prime-time soaps marketed for well-behaved adults.
The NBTC, or just one senior military member of it, is alarmed that the show shows the bubbling hormones quite too candidly, as if he's forgotten that chemical secretions also once dictated his noble, pre-NBTC body.
