Episode 5 gets sexual

There’s a lengthy sex scene in bed, no nudity but inappropriate. In another scene a teen boy starts making out with another teen boy in the bathroom where he later admits they had sex. Compared to other shows, it’s more moderate, sexually, but definitely some awkward scenes in this episode.

Pretty good tv show, I think that its okay for most tweens if they aren't sensitive to violence
