Commonsense- you can do better

Frankly, Commons Sense's review is more offensive that the show ever was. I would rather have kids watch the show than read your review calling an adolescent girl a "tramp" and talking about "homosexuality." I rely on this website to make good decisions about what to watch with the kids. If this is how you describe women and folks who don't identify as straight, I don't know how much I can trust your reviews.

When this show came out, I was well beyond my teens, but I always thought it was one of the more realistic shows for teens. Also, I love Claire Danes. I will probably suggest it for my daughter when she is older (she is 12 now.)
