Not clean

The series starts out okay. But by episode three, one of the sick girls shares a brief kiss with her girlfriend. I am very disappointed that common sense labeled this as ok with no sexual content.

So far so good

Episode 1: It starts out slow. The main actress, who is a lawyer, heads back to her long forgotten hometown to settle with victims of a possible vaccine induced illness. Causes for concerned parents: a teenage girl proclaims to have lied to her parents & she and her friend who is a girl say they are a gay couple and have "been with each other".
