Disgusting & Disturbing

Not only was I bored with the redundant drug use and alcohol guzzling but the teen pornography and extensive sexual activity was appalling. It was not that long ago when I had 2 teens in High School and this disgusting behavior was not tolerated nor condoned. To have a movie normalizing teen sex, drugs and drinking is absolutely demoralizing and horrid. Where are the parents? THIS IS NOT OKAY.

There is a disclaimer at the top of the show for good reason

My review is based on content only. I’m normally pretty liberal about what my teens watch, but this show should absolutely not be viewed by anyone under 18, and would probably not appeal to many adults. Spoiler: The questionable content in the first episode alone includes full nudity and graphic sex portrayed by just barely adult actors playing high schoolers, actual porn footage, a close up of an older man putting a condom on his erect penis and having anal sex with a trans teen, drug usage of every kind imaginable, and a child drug dealer. If your teen has already watched, you might want to consider if a discussion is appropriate.
