  • What I Love and Hate About "I Hate My Teenage Daughter"

    I know I'm going against everyone, TV critics, people on here, and I know I'm going to get thumbs down for reviewing it highly, but being honest, I loved it!

    Jamie was amazing as Annie. She was funny and witty and I love the stories of how she was raised, it was very original and funny. I extremely loved Katie in the part of Nikki. She was scene stealing, hilarious, and kind of seemed like a stage mom who was just pushing her daughter to be popular. This show is original, and edgy why still having an old sitcom feeling, and it is genuinely funny.

    Ways the show could improve, are with the other characters. The daughters are to mean. There can be funny mean, but the girls are more painful to watch mean, they need to be toned down. The ex-husbands, also needs to be fixed. Annie's ex is annoying, and cliche, and Nikki's ex-husband is funny, but very one dimensional. Also, they need to fix Annie's ex-husband's brother. He is very forgettable. I don't remember his name or much about him except he's a lawyer.

    Other then those this the show was funny and was good, and the talents and performances of Jamie Pressly and Katie Finneran were good enough to over shadow the shows flaws, and i got a handful of good laughs out of this episode.moreless
