User Reviews

 
Well done if a little obvious
2 June 2014 | by tia-durlstonpowellSee all my reviews

Whilst this series won't win the award for best screenplay, it succeeds in hitting many difficult themes without being offensive or derogatory. I've read many online reviews that argue it's offensive that it's about lesbians - and this is just lesbophobia (real word). I've read reviews that argue it's offensive that the girl's aren't actually lesbians - that's mythophobia. The worst reviews I've read argue that it's offensive a school might actually regard homosexuals better than meterosexuals - that offends me!

This series manages to skirt the rarely considered themes without actually hitting them. I've found it to be excellent fun, if a little obvious, and hope it gets renewed!
