Watching it is being strapped to a chair by the sheer inconveniency of an out-of-reach remote control and extreme laziness, assaulted with images of wholesome Christians with their made-up angst and quirky (I mean quirky as in annoying) dispositions discussing (and I mean discussing as in brainwashing) us with abstinence-or-else storylines of weak, desperate girls and stupid guys accompanied by a pseudo-serious but really annoying soundtrack that would make Beethoven stick a conducting baton in his eye.

Peter lies, denying his is gay as he fears what his parents might say. But his parents know and it turns out they were the ones who suggested him for Grace's double date. Grace and Grant hit it off and that kiss she shared with Ben is so totally last week.
