My kids love this show and, I must confess, I find it very entertaining as well. At first I was disappointed with my daughter's taste for liking it but then I sat down a watched a few episodes with her. At times I found myself laughing out loud - which is extremely rare in today's television offerings. I soon discovered that BTR was well aware of the boy-band stereotypes and just ran with it. There is the "pretty one", the "smart one", etc. but they have no issue poking fun at the stereotypes and each other. You get the feeling that these are genuinely nice people who enjoy each other's company. Again, very refreshing from Hollywood. For older ones like me, it's a modern "Monkees" type show with thoroughly likable characters but much better writing. A lot of the songs are catchy too.
