    good acting but terrible scripts

    By nek07, Aug 12, 2014

    The show started out well and the characters fit the script well. However, It has changed into a modern soap opera using violence, drugs, and betrayal to add drama where it is not needed. All the actors are able to show both love and understanding very well. The most recent show, Aug 11, Daphne steals drugs and then flushes them. It is just as contrived as her cocaine use and vandalism in earlier episodes. It shows a recklessness and disregard for others that does not fit her earlier character. Today's episode could have focused on the dress code problem and the fun of the outside prom. This program's writers have gone beyond a bridge too far. They have made innocent likeable high school students take on every problem of young adults pretty much all at the same time. The tension the writers are artificially creating is so unbelievable it makes me flinch and think, "Too bad. It started out as such a goodmoreless

    I like it

    By EdgardArcas, Feb 24, 2014

    I think it brings the theme of teen development in the right manner, it mentions sex in a manner that is constructive and lets actual teens learn from the characters mistakes, it is very well written and catches my attention, it is entertaining without the common exaggeration we see in other series.

    Family values redefined????

    By cmail, Jan 25, 2014

    When this series started I was quickly hooked. I, like many, was intrigued by the whole sign language take. But as the season wore on and into the second season they brought in teen sexuality with seemingly no consequence now I was concerned. Like we don't have enough STD's in the teen and young adult population in this country, not to mention babies being born out of wedlock where the Dad's aren't sticking around? Then they made abstinence education look stupid when abstinence is truly the only way to prevent STD's and pregnancy. The only "christian" on the program was made fun of for her beliefs and then finally compromises on those beliefs in the end.

    Since I don't have kids at home anymore I kept on watching, then when they brought in the homosexual couple and portrayed them as being the "better" choice of a parent then their own Dad coupled with the new "friend" from the dance studio I decided it was time to turn off my auto record button and stop watching. Just when I thought things can't get much worse the next show comes on called The Foster's and the first scene is of the "mother's" in bed after their "honeymoon" kissing, I turned that off right away. Yikes, I am only 56 but this is to much for me and it makes me sad that our children are being raised thinking that these "morals" are normal. I have to ask the question, since Homosexuality is such a small percentage of our population in America why is it so prevalent in almost every program that comes out of Hollywood? It's back to Hallmark and a different "Family" channel for me and hopefully others as well.moreless

    This show makes you keep wanting to watch to find out what happens but....

    By shareemillet7, Oct 12, 2013

    It is a "family" drama TV show... although it is not a show I would let my children watch not even my teenagers. I did however watch it myself and watched the 1st and 2nd season. I do love how they have Sign language in it and I have learned some sighing just by watching this show! I am actually deaf in one ear, so this show is awesome because I felt like I could relate in a way. Don't get me wrong there were some moral standards in this show like you shouldn't lie or always try to do the right thing It is interesting to me and I do enjoy watching it families/teenagers can't be perfect but their moral standards were too messed up in this show they could have made the show a lot better with still a lot of drama by leaving some things out. The reason I say I would not let my children or teenagers watch this is because they support sex before marriage as long as you have "condoms" its okay... Its NOT okay in my book! Also Angelo's baby's adopted "fathers" Really now they add homosexuality into the show gay guys adopting his baby. Not to mention many people cheating on each other... liked the show better when Nikki came into the show she had stronger values than a lot of the characters did. She wanted to wait until she was married to have sex. She had a past but wanted to turn her life around and she did change. I was so happy when her and Toby got engaged!!! Toby respected her values and her wishes to wait till marriage to have sex and it was hard for him obviously but he did it... that is until at the end of the 2nd season their brain washed parents said they shouldn't get married like the day before their wedding at the rehearsal dinner and told them to just go ahead and have sex because they were so young and should go to "college" first or figure out life instead of figuring out life together being married. I totally disagreed there. That was the last straw for me. It is scary how this is a "family" show because that means that family oriented shows are teaching our children that this kind of stuff is "Okay" and that building your life around yourself first and then getting married is a good idea, rather than structuring your life with a marriage in mind.moreless

    Christian overtones far as the eye can see

    By drcritical, Sep 17, 2013

    If you enjoy sign language look no further, when I first stumbled across this show i thought another Stephen King novel had been adapted. Beyond the feel good acceptance and teenage love triangle, there was a high point thus far (and i would know because my wife follows the show) when, and stop me if you've heard this one before; a young deaf woman is attacked by a group of hoodlums for giving away free burritos from her ice cream truck in the ghetto. I don't have much positive or negative to say about this show because it leaves that type of impression. 3, because there isn't a reason to go any higher, but sometimes the dad plays basketball with the kids, and I like that.moreless
