NC (vo): ''[[Saved By the Bell]]'', for example, is about a high school boy (Zack Morris) who constantly causes trouble and yet still comes out cool and on top. And let's face it, at some point when we were growing up, we wanted to be like Zack Morris. (''Pictures of high school kids are shown.'') But when we got to high school, it wasn't everything the show promised, was it? But it's okay. You know why? We adapted. (''Pictures of Batman and Barbie'') We all wanted to be violent superheroes or glamorous movie stars, but we quickly discovered that reality had different plans and we woke up pretty quick to it. Why? One: we're adaptable. (''Cut to pictures of kids'') We learn and discover that our environment changes and thus, we have to make some changes, too. Two: We grow the fuck up! It's called being smart, and young people do it more often than you think. Not all the time (Jersey Shore), (''Clip from ''The Simpsons ''is shown.'') but remember when ''[[Top 11 Simpsons Episodes|The Simpsons]]'' was said to be destroying the fabric of America? (''Clip from one of Andrew Dice Clay's stand up'' ''shows.'') Remember how Andrew Dice Clay was the most shocking person in media? Remember how everybody thought (''Clip of "Vogue" by....)'' Madonna was gonna be the downfall of society? A lot of things we thought were going to kill us, we actually just evolved beyond. And now we look back and laugh at half the stuff we were afraid of. The early ''Simpsons'' aren't shocking, hell, if anything, they're just kind of awkward. Nobody talks about Andrew Dice fucking Clay anymore, in fact, where the hell even is that guy? And Madonna...well, okay, she still has to keep her clothes on, but for different reasons. My guess is, we'll look back on ''Twilight'' as the same way: it was stupid, even enjoyably stupid and at times, it probably did go too far. Watch this old vlog if you want more specifics on that. (''Clip of ''Breaking Dawn Part 1'' rant'') But for every moron who's actually going to stay in the mindset that ''Twilight'' represents what life really is, dozens of others are evolving and moving on. So, is ''Twilight'' the worst thing ever? Well, the fact is it's not ''Twilight ''that we hate so much, it's everybody's reaction to it. The fact that society made it a hit, and we wonder what that says about us. It's weird and it's messed up, but it's not the first time we've liked unethical crap (''Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'', and ''The Bratz'' movie). So, it only proves that we shouldn't be paranoid about it either. Just accept the fact that chances are people will look back on it one day and laugh the same way we laugh at something like ''Saved by the Bell''. It's stupid, and I'll continue to make fun of it, but in terms of the worst thing ever, oh ho ho, my friends. There is so much more evolution and de-evolution (''[[The Smurfs 2]]'') that I think our society has to show.
