Pretty entertaining

This show is basically another "Degrassi" or "Pretty Little Liars" type of show. As long as your child is mature enough to know and understand what is going on, 11 is probably the best age. Maybe even 10. It contains some things that are a little risky, like one teen girl has had a baby. Things like underage drinking, sexual activity, sexuality, discrimination, and everything else you would find in an average teenage drama television program.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 15+
This show contains A LOT of cussing. I've seen my kid watching it, there's always someone saying "b astard", "b itch", "ass", "hell" or "damnit". It is rated TV-14 for LSVD. Of course there isn't all four in every episode. L - Show cusses a lot. S - Someone is always making out or having sex. V - Blood and fighting is definitely in the program. D - Some inappropriate dialogue. This show covers - sex, relationships, drama, scandals, sexual orientation, friendships, racism, secrets and it's kind of like Degrassi. It just depends in the episode, the LSDV varies.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
