Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this mercifully short-lived series puts an emphasis on violence and sexuality, making it unfit for kids. The lack of story line, plot, and interesting characters makes it unfit for anyone else. Normal teenage emotions such as jealousy or excitement are handled with violent consequences, creating a questionable combination that can be confusing to young audiences. The parents who are actually present in the show have a Stepford mentality, blindly allowing their kids to make big decisions with little engagement or dialogue. There is rampant teenage infidelity, one-night stands, underage drinking, graphic deaths, and promiscuous tendencies.
