Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this college drama from the former head writer of teen favorite Degrassi: The Next Generation tackles just as many issues as that show -- albeit in a somewhat soap-operaish way. Romantic relationships among students (and in one case, between a student and his married professor) include sex; sometimes the girls use their bodies to gain guys' interest. Expect some mild language ("bitch," "damn," etc.) and lots of underage drinking -- though the latter sometimes comes with consequences: In one episode, a drunk teen falls to his death from a rooftop. (It's worth noting that many of the characters would be of age in Canada, where the series is made -- though it takes place in the United States.)
Various states of undress -- like the rear view of a woman in a bra. Storylines include allusions to sexual relationships -- for example, a girl makes a provocative tape of herself to spark a guy's interest, and a student sleeps with his professor. College dorms have co-ed bathrooms.
In one scene, a drunk teen dies after falling from a rooftop. There's no blood, but his lifeless body is shown.
Occasional use of words like "ass," "bitch," "hell," and "damn."
Overall these teen characters aren't the best models for responsible behavior -- though much of what they do probably isn't that far off of what goes in on real-life colleges. They sleep around (some with professors), drink a lot, don't appreciate their friendships, and often manipulate others' emotions.
Drugs / Tobacco /
The teen college students go to bars and drink alcohol (many are of legal drinking age in Canada, where the series is made). In one scene, drunkenness leads one character to fall to his death from a rooftop.
