wow

I think im a open minded person. Who cares about the violence and the language. But teenagers having a show wherre they can watch other kids having sex and doing drugs. Come on world kids look up to kids on MTV. When I was growing up MTV was so cool to me. This shows kids that it is infact cool to do drugs and have sex if you want to stick in with the crowd. I think it's a great show.. for child molesters.

It's too much aggresive to bee seen: sex, drugs, parents who has much more problems than their own teenagers, manipulation... and so on. I don't think this the way to live the life for no one. Although the story is interesting and its a good drama... I don't need to see all the bad things to understand that selfish is a no-happy-ending story.

cool

There are some positive messages in the show and the show does contain some sex. The characters experince arguments and start fighting. There is frequent drug use and teen alcohol drinking. Some brands are visible throughout the show. The show is entertaining and great though but isnt child/teen porn as some parents like to call it. It shows what teens actually go through like degrassi is nothing what teens actually go through thats just an insult to us teens. Im in 8th grade and people in my school do drugs and have sex but just by watching this show cant make you do those things.

Great show!

I began watching this show as a Sophomore in high school and I honestly think that it was very educational in that it showed complications of drug use, diversity, struggles with mental illnesses and a variety of very real and very realistic things that the average teen will come across as they grow up...not to mention that it was incredibly captivating and entertaining
