What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I watched the first couple of episodes but had to stop. The whole premise that a kidnapped child after so many years would be dumped back with her biological family with only a bog-standard family therapist helping the whole family is flawed and insulting to the viewers' intelligence.

That "Carter" is an angst filled, rebellious teen is just what many teens go through and the writing of her character flaws and psychological problems didn't feel real. The layers of issues that she would be facing would be greater, more intense, and the help that she would require would be daily hands on support.
