Just awful

Such a terrible show. Just in general. Bad acting, bad script. Do not subject young minds to something not even worthy of being on television. Let the minds of teens and children EXPLORE. Don't just force them to watch an awful cliche of a person talk about how boring and sad her life is.

Hallie-Yes. She loves Liz's alternative style. Elena- No. She doesn't think Liz is pretty enough. Mom- Loves to watch and discuss with Hallie Dad- Oh God no.

Too much swearing
