Baldwin Hills

Once again…BET’s answer to something MTV was doing better (Laguna Beach), Baldwin Hills followed black teens in the BH area of Los Angeles and put you front row and center through high-school-ish drama like fighting over boys and even teen pregnancy (yikes!). As one of my co-workers put it, she felt a huge issue with the show, and many of BET’s attempts at reality TV because the production value comes off as being very low. There’s no pop or polish, just flipcam looking material. On top of that, these teens were more awkward than usual because they were trying too hard to make it look like they weren’t acting and trying hard to memorize their lines when they clearly were. Point blank: it was horrible. Sorry kids (who are probably close to my age now…).
