Good season. Only the high age ranking to bring the parent rating to 12+

This is the sequel to arguably one of the best written and excited shows. Total drama Island. While this one is more appropriate. The storylines in the season suck. 1. Trent is a s*mp and is weird 2. Gwen dumps Trent and foreshadows love to Duncan 3. Dj is now complete mommas boy 4. Geoff and Bridgette Lose first cause all they do is kiss. 5. Geoff and Bridgette Have a aftermath show where Geoff is Chris but more sane. 6. Heather is bald and doesn’t even care 7. Beth won not Lindsay 8. No main antagonist 9. Leshawna isn’t cool 10. Courtney is a brat 11. Chef only cares bout $$ 12.etc but 2 hard to thing

This show is fine

This was one of my favorite shows as a kid and I have it on Netflix on the background and they’ve censored and changed it so much and it sucks now. To everyone saying how “inappropriate” it is, this she was fine. There was so swear words worse than “crap” on it which is fine compared to what most kids say these days. They’ve even changed a part where a girls words are bleeped out to her saying something else during the “bleep”. Why do we need to censor a censor. Trust me parents, I’ve been around a lot of kids and they know much worse than what’s on this show
