    • Only watched it because I was bored :l

      I wanted to watch the Fault in our Stars on Netflix, but it's not available to scream! Anyways this show pops up and I read the description and I watched a few episodes. Unfortunately due to the spoiler self I am, I looked it up. I read all about what hapens and it made me want to scream FUCK THIS SHIT IM NOT SPENDING MY TIME WATCHING 5 SEASONS OF THIS! The main character is all Oh poor me I had sex with someone and it's all his fault not mine at And here I am like BITCH THERE IS SEX ED FOR A REASON! SHe is also mean to her boyfriend who is also 15 so he doesn't know how to handle all of this. She's always mad at him when he is trying to help. He loves you and you dont even CARE! But honestly it ticked me off so much with the following that I quit the show 1. She almost ended up with the guy who said he didnt want anything to do with her or her baby. 2. They write the show so that that SLUT Adrian sleeps with Ben and they have a child. That is poor writing that I just want to ARGH! I personally think the only person I actualy, thoroughly enjoyed was Ashley. Just saying people on this show have too many problems, and probably need to see a therapist, they made Grace who was basically an angel on Earth have SEX! NO! I have a feeling, that this show was written based off of what fans wanted, not the people who you now studied this stuff or you know have experience. Its kind of the wannabe Jane the Virgin. Which I HIGHLY reccomend btw it only has two seasons out currently,but it's better than this and the storyline is a LOT better.moreless

      THE LAST SEASON WAS TERRIBLE !!!!!!!!!!!!! The ending made me cry so much!!!! I was GREAT during the series but

      the ending was not necessary to happen!!! The main character fell in

      love with Ricky and should be with Ricky not going to New York to go to

      her school or see her ex-boyfriend! She should be with the father of

      her son and get married (RICKY)! THEY LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL TOGETHER!!!!moreless

      I've grown up watching a lot of movies, TV shows, documentaries, etc. and this is by far the worst piece of crap that I have ever seen. I like Shaliene Woodly and her movies but in this show I absolutely resented her. She was such a prissy naive little brat who thinks that the world revolves around her. I hate this show so much because the characters are awful and the storyline got old. Amy was so judgmental of what Ben did all the time and she did the same exact things, Ben was nothing but a great boyfriend to her and she kept pushing him away n when he finally got tired of her n broke up with her she wants to act like she really loved him, Ricky had a bad past but all he wanted was sex and it got a little old, I thought that him and Adrean should have been together but I guess not. Adrean wanted his love but he was too afraid to make a commitment and when she had sex with Ben everyone wants to get mad at Ben and her even thought they cheated on them first so they had no right to be mad at anyone but their selves but once again everything goes the way Amy wants it to go. Grace was such a naive whinney little girl that was confused about sex and thought that it killed her father and vowed to never do it again and still did it. Ashley was cool and the only smart one until she fell for Ricky. Lauren and Madison was it, they were gossip girls. Jack was just a bad actress that by the way can't dance and all he wanted was sex. But overall the show was terrible and the ending is terrible and I regret every single second I spent on watching it.moreless
    • surely in 5 seasons they could have come up with something a little more interesting and realistic

      Worst show ever. i'm not sure how they did 5 seasons, but didn't actually accomplish anything. grace talked about having sex with jack for 5 seasons and how it is a sin, but still managed sleep around. Amy whined for 5 seasons about being a teen mom and liking ben then ricky, then ben, then ricky... and for some reason the writers seemed to think that not only did they think 1 couple in this high school should get married, but somehow all of them thought marriage was a high school thing-to-do and there PARENTS all seem to think marriage was the answer to all there issues. What! Who writes this crap! Last point is that all of the girls are mean and nasty to each other an there families and it was really annoying.moreless

      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.
