underage girls
24 July 2019 | by jodi-44528See all my reviews

This show aired 30 years ago, but even taking that into account, there is an ick factor when these cops show interest in underage high school girls. This isn't the first episode in which that happens. They are probably only a few years older than these girls, but those few years are pretty important, comparing a high school girl and an adult man.

I have this on for background noise when I'm cleaning or cooking, but this has really stood out - makes my skin crawl.
