Rated PG-13 for drug and alcohol use, some sexual content, and dialogue, brief language, and thematic material - all involving teens

Many sexual references are made, including the fact that two characters often have sex.

Three characters watch a porno (nothing is seen) and then one character is freaked out by what happened.

A character is given a hickey but nothing graphic is shown.

A characters clothes are stolen and he streaks through the school but nothing is shown and its very comic.

Mostly mild language. The s-word, the d-word, hell. The opening song is "Bad Reputation" by Joan Jett which features damn a few times

The "freak" characters smoke a whole lot of pot. It is mentioned that one character is addicted. There is a party episode where non-alchoholic beer is served but the real beer is consumed by a "geek" character and becomes drunk.

Mostly none. In one episode a girl is violently thrown out by her parents but it is done in a comic fashion. One character figures out his dad may be cheating on his mom and it is intense when he figures out it is true.
