    Ah geez. This was a terrible show. The charcters and actors were awful. I liked Shailene Woodley but they made Amy into a bitch by the end. Yeah, the end was awful. And the dialogue was awfully repetitive. Can't believe I wasted a whole summer watching this trash.
  • With a show like this, you gotta wonder why they call themselves ABC Family.

    I really hate this show and for good reasons: 1. The characters are unlikable; if they're not being teenage stereotypes then they're certain acting like idiots who don't know what they're doing. 2. It doesn't belong on a "family friendly" channel; this is a show I expect from TeenNick. Oh wait, isn't that Degrassi?! A show that deals with teenage problems just to amuse teenagers who are most likely experiencing those problems as they're watching it?! 3. It's so dramatic; and don't fucking tell me "it's a teen drama" or "teens go through this kind of trauma all the time" otherwise I'll kindly tell you to SHUT THE FUCK UP!!!!! A. Zoey 101 was a much better teen drama than this piece of crap; it might not be Dan Schneider's best show, but at least it had a subtle tone. This show is so dramatic with its portrayal of teen pregnancy and how to deal with it that it's just made me cringe and groan every time I saw a fucking promo for the show. B. I have a friend who was pregnant during high school and she wasn't moody or regretful of getting knocked up while still a teenager; she was fucking happy and proud that she was going to be a fucking mother!!! This show embraces the stereotype that teens who get pregnant regret the decision so much so that if I was a girl and I got pregnant( I'm a dude, by the way), I wouldn't just be offended, I'd petition to have the show cancelled before it's first season wrapped up. I don't recommend you watch this show or any of the shows on ABC "Family" because the characters are very stereotypical, the acting is so over dramatic it's stupid and the premise is offensive to most expecting teen parents. Fuck this show and fuck ABC "Family!!" >:(moreless
  • Horrible last season

    5.0
    This was such a good show which I highly enjoyed, but this last season just about ruined it all. And wtf is wrong with the last episode, I know it got cancelled and all, but this is just about ridiculous. Thanks for a good show up untill last season, even though I had hoped it continued like season 4. Amy and Ricky really deserved to have some happiness in their lives after all they have gone through.moreless
  • So many questions unanswered. Horrible Ending.

    9.5
    I loved this show from beginning to almost the very end. I was so excited to see that John would have a happy family, and everyone would end up with someone that they should've been the whole time. Adrian wasn't my favorite character at all, and she's the only one who for sure had a happy ending with Omar. Then the Jack and Grace thing, like did Grace ever find out about the secretive make-out session between Jack and Madison? It never says for sure if Ben and Amy gets back together, and what happens next with Ricky, does he get back to gather with Klemintine? Does he still try for Amy? I just hated the ending, and I feel like they should have had an extra episode explaining everybody's relationships. I was upset that it was coming to an end anyways and to see it end like that was very upsetting.moreless
  • Worst Ending EVER!

    9.5
    I have watched this show from beginning to end and this is what I get! I am so disappointed and sad, angry! WHY? I was so looking forward to the think everyone deserves to know what happened to the cast! I understand the only graduated high school and they ALL had their life in front of them, but what happened to Grace and Jack and Tom and Anne and George and Ben and Adrian well i guess we kind of know what happened. I have no words to explain how sad i am....... The show was amazing except the ending!moreless
