Dear FOX Executives – “Red Band Society?” What the Hell?

Dear FOX Executives,

My social media news feed now blows up on Wednesday nights, and you’re to blame. That’s when you air “Red Band Society,” your drama about teens with life threatening diseases living in a children’s hospital.  You see, most of my friends on social media are adults who, like me, are survivors of some pretty horrendous diseases we had as teenagers.  Our youths revolved around hospitals and illnesses and the constant threat of death.  Honestly, the entire experience for me was so traumatizing that I can only recall bits and pieces of an entire decade of my life.  (Shameless plug – what I could recall, I wrote about in The Spider and the Wasp).

But if there’s one thing we all learned from being sick teens, it’s not to judge when you’re so imperfect yourself. We just have some issues with the way you present life as a sick teenager.  As the self-appointed representative of the group, what we want to do is offer some constructive criticisms that can help turn your show from being less “Hospital 90210” and more “Mad Men,” if you catch our drift….
