April (age 15) is running from one bad situation into another, hoping to find an answer that doesn't involve nudity, and falls in with a group of confused kids chasing their dreams. The black widow in the web is the sexy, pot-dealing Sally.
Wow.... You know what??? If you go, and do some research.... such as looking at most sitcoms of today, that are NOT centered around sex, drinking, sex, sluts, sex, violence, sex, beer, sex, racial stereotypes, sex, senseless action scenes, sex, bimbos, sex, making fun of handicaps, sex, toilet humor, sex, love triangles, sex, drugs, sex, more bimbo sluts, sex, pregnancies, sex, and boring drama.... oh, did I mention sex???? You will easily see that darn near majority of the reviewers will cry, moan, and complain about the same way. By saying that it was boring, stale, and old. Stick to the Secret Life of an American Teenager, or Desperate Housewives, where everything is about backstabbing, betrayals, and (that word again) sex. We have all been consumed with being practically immoral, and our standards as a whole have sunk pretty low. A show that is positive in any way gets bashed. Being good is a bad thing, now. And, ask yourself, why is that??? You cannot answer it, can you??? For the folks, who enjoy shows like this, you can either act like you don't, or stand up for having some guts, or nuts. This show was actually just average, I enjoyed it more, for trying to show just an average, everyday family, with real-life situations. Bill was funny, and Nancy was awesome. Now, with Tim Meadows, he was great. Now for the folks who did not like the show, you can celebrate, and rejoice, the show has been canceled. Now, you can get back to your lessons in backstabbing, bribery, adultery, teen pregnancies, deviant marriages, and dull boring drama B.S. This was a decently good show, too bad it is now gone. Maybe Hank, will be just as good.
