Although the characters in this series sometimes engage in some unflattering behavior, their devotion to each other is a happy consequence of the trials they face. The plot raises some grown-up issues like unplanned pregnancy, virginity, financial uncertainty, and mistaking sexual relationships for emotional ones, but it does so in a thoughtful manner that encourages discussion.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Graphic scenes of couples undressing and engaging in casual sex. Nudity includes views of butts during the act. There are references to birth control (in one instance, a woman encourages her partner to use a condom, but since she's facing away from him, she's not quite sure he really does), unplanned pregnancy, and using sex as a means of stress relief. Two female friends are shown sleeping in the same bed and sharing a bathtub (though one is robed).
Everything goes here: "f--k," "s--t," "Jesus Christ," "boobs," "bitch," and body references like "vagina."
References to Facebook and other timely tools of social relationships as well as nods to Sex and the City from a character who's enthralled with the show and its four stars.
Ease of Play
Most of the characters drink, and, to a lesser extent engage in drug use as well, sometimes with disastrous consequences for the user.
