In any case, Volume 3 introduces a gay character, Griffin, who looks more than a bit old to be a freshman, even a college freshman, and who immediately becomes a bodyguard to Ashley, as if she needs one. All Griffin does is say "I'm gay!" immediately to everyone he meets. Is Griffin going to have a love interest? Or is Griffin going to be the only character who HAS a secret and keeps it?
Some of the dialog is sharp, but the plots are getting a bit far out. Hence minus one star.
The extras on the Volume 3 disk are minimal. Certainly there must be out-takes and bloopers that the audience would enjoy. Hence minus a second star.
But the series surprised me when it chose to tackle some thorny life issues head on. The creators didn't flinch or hold back in discussing the results of teen-age pregnancy. The audience gets to see the good, bad, and ugly which results when two kids have to grow up way before they're ready.
The kids are all likeable and everyone can relate to at least one of them, even if you find yourself wincing as you remember some of the "brilliant" decisions you made when you were young.
