I love this show. I started watching reruns, and I think it's a great show... but, it's inappropriate for kids. There is a lot of talk about sex and stuff, and I was shocked to find out it was a disney channel show. As the show progresses the topics become much more adult and risque, the first few seasons are mostly appropriate, but after the gang is in like their junior year, I would advise to not allow children to watch. There are also a few violent or sad episodes. One of the lead characters comes from a dysfunctional family, whom he doesn't get along with, this family deals with a lot of drinking and drugs. The same character experiences losing his father to a heart attack, after they had the biggest fight of their life. The Mathews Family almost loses their new born child, which is difficult for the whole group of lead characters. Both these episodes brought me to tears, there were also many semi-violent fights that broke out later in the series. Mature teens would probably do fine with it, although I would advise against anything younger. Happy watching!!!
