I disagree with most of the reviewers on here...they are taking it way too seriously. This is not My So-Called Life or Freaks and Geeks, no, but it is an ABC Family show, so, it is what it is...the acting is average, the script is average and the characters are average. Yes, it seems like some long after school special on sex and "love" and pregnancy, and it appears as though they are trying to teach kids a lesson on pregnancy, sex and love, I think. Wish there were some other story lines. When I hear the words pregnancy and sex 1000's of times, it gets pretty boring, but I can't stop watching it. And, hey, I am 45 and even back in my day, this is not how teens lived, but then if they were to portray my high school days, it would have to be on HBO. I really don't think people are like this in real life, but maybe that was the intention; to be pretty bland so it fit in as a family show. But, for a family show, they do talk about masturbation a lot... ha, ha! And, the acting is like kids who took acting 101. I don't think any of them have gone on to do anything else. Also, one thing I noted...they had to represent every single person who exists in the world...black, Asian, gay, Down's Syndrome, atheist, Christian, etc. etc. I am surprised they did not have a midget. But, really, it is okay and a bit addictive, even though it is the same theme over and over and over. Okay for a teen to watch or an old gal like me. On Netflix watch it now, so I got desperate. P.S. Amy looks like she is 12. Kinda creepy.
