Spin-off of the hit Disney Channel series "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," in which twin brothers Zack and Cody Martin and hotel heiress London Tipton enroll in a semester-at-sea program aboard a ship called the SS Tipton.
The series documents the evermore complicated yet heart warming life of Amy Juergens; a typical high-school student who is characterized by her ambition and musical Band talent. However, it is after one hormonal-driven night at Band Camp, that she is faced with a responsibility no 15-year-old wants to take; being a teen mom. The audience is taken on a journey with Amy as she confronts her problem and Rickey the father of her baby.Written by

The whole plot line is nothing but sex. Sex sex sex. From all walks of life; whether it is the meek girl who was taken advantage of, the player, the wannabe-player, the bad girl, the girl who wants to save it till marriage, the boyfriend who wants to pressure her to give in...
Seriously, there does not seem to be at least one sentence where the characters are not talking about intercourse. ALL of the characters.
It's nothing but stereotypes, and really bad dialogue. And unrealistic in regards to what life as a teen really is like. If it is suppose to be a satire, or a spoof of some sort...doesn't seem to be doing a great job.
And for one thing, the adults themselves appear to be brainless. If a principle KNEW that a boy wanted to join the band just because he wanted to pick up girls....wouldn't it be refused overall? The kid even asked for a condom!
And I tire of the stereotypical portrayal of girls who do want to wait till marriage. Not all of them are girly, pushy, over religious and braggy about their chastity. But yet will eventually will always "give in" to their apparent urges.
And not all teenage boys are crazy horny 24/7 with bad intentions on their minds.
The whole sex theme and teen pregnancy is getting old - especially if it isn't done well and creatively.
It gives a whole general bad impression on American society, as if all teens are really like this.
