Normalizes criminal behavior

The amount of manipulation, criminal offenses, situations that should have ended in lawsuits, and hyper-sexualization of teens are shocking. Everything gets a pass in the show, it seems. The main character even sang intimate and flirtatious songs to adults more than once. In one example, she wears a mini-mini-mini dress and rolls around on a piano like madonna, singing about romance, and grabs a grown man's tie, looking at him with flirting eyes. Disgusting. Also, the show is full of assault and battery. In no situation is there a real threat of liability for inappropriate or downright criminal behavior. The underlying message that bad things aren't so bad is consistent.

Annoying!

No one should think driving and shaving your legs or Pitt is funny! Might as well text and drive!
