Did we miss something on diversity?

Great plot, very educational, pretty intense

This is a great show that I had a lot of fun watching. It was intense, and had a fantastic plot. It explores a lot of hard topics though, so definitely not for kids. There is drugs, drinking, and sex mentioned. There isn't much "romance" in this show, but the protagonist and the main love interests definitely like each other and it's very clear. There are two times couples make out but it's short and isn't that much. Over all a really great show for those who like character development and a great plot. Kinda ends on a clif hanger though so beware
