Nice start, horrible continuation
18 August 2018 | by svazcinSee all my reviews

First, I loved to see a amorous, stable same sex couple dealing with family issues. As an LBGTT rights advocate, I appreciated the exposure. Second, I am a mother of 5, now all grownup, so I have dealt we many of the issues presented. First season, was quite nice to watch but then it turned into a spiral of bad choices made by adolescents that were seen as normal by parents without proper management.

All the kids started having sex at 15 years old with the knowledge and acceptance of parents, making the sex act a trivial achievement with no emotions attached to it. The character is Callie is annoying. She makes one bad choice after another and when caught parents and figures of authority, like Rita, praise her as a hero. She is an irresponsible adolescent that needed education in controlling her impulses. I wish she is sent to some program that help her realize how irresponsible she is. She is rude with her parents and all the others also. Even though their parents are the most understandable people I have seen.

I am watching season 4 and it is horrible. Do they have one kid, only one, that is regular and mature? The way they handle situations assures that they will be irresponsible adults. I have read other critics and most are attacking the LGBTT issue and they are wrong. That is no problem in this show, the problem is the triviality by which they handle important and strong issues our youth go through. All of them are bad examples of how to behave in society and how to achieve success.
