List Rules Live-action American science fiction or fantasy tv series that heavily feature teen characters (or at least the series started that way), no miniseries

Teens can be some of the most loyal television series fans. Can be. Sometimes they're too busy on their iPhones and pirating music to watch TV. But, not all teens are hormonal nightmares... they're just complicated. They're about as complicated as these great teen scifi shows. These greatest teen fantasy shows of all time. What does that mean? It means that teens are in the middle of finding themselves and these great shows help them shape their identity. Are they a Supernatural person? Or is Smallville more their speed? This is the second most important question when you're a teen - just behind, "what music do you listen to?"

These are some great TV series. That being said, it's up to you, Rankers. Which of these teen sci-fi fantasy shows is the greatest ever?
