Viewer Comments   

Avoid—I also am tired of the way Christians are portrayed on television. They all come off looking like unenlightened idiots who say one thing and live another way. Sex seems to be the only subject matter any of the writers can come up with on any of the sitcoms. It is NOT time to be tolerant of all things but to take a stand against things that are wrong.

Take Caution—This show is pretty good, but it sometimes requires discernment on the part of the parents. Sex is often discussed, but not too explicitly. There is plenty of humor to be found. I'd leave this one to the adults.

Avoid—Sometimes funny but very objectionable content. Premise: Reba's oldest daughter-a senior in high school is pregnant so she and her boyfriend get married and he moves into her parents house. The marriage between the two of them is seen as having very few problems and is just an excuse for them to have frequent sex which is talked about explicitly. Maybe they will show the consequences of having pre-marital sex, but right now it's pretty much just glorified. Also, the parents are separated and the father's mistress is pregnant. She is an air-headed Christian who is talking about Jesus all the time and yet sees nothing wrong with her actions. I can't stand the way Christians are being portrayed in the media and will not watch this show.

Young people express their opinions…

Usually OK—I know most Christians say stay away from this stuff and don't indulge it, but in my opinion I really find this show hilarious and fun to watch. I am a freshman in highschool and I am just a few of a whole bunch of people who really like this show.
