    There are a lot of ‘same old’ shows on these days – some are good, most are awful. This show is exploring a topic that most of us will never experience. We see the pledge drives for children’s hospitals and read the stories but we don’t know kids or parents of kids actually experiencing serious health conditions. Then to push beyond the disease and move into how the kids are feeling and how they strive for normalcy when there day-to-day lives are anything but. Yeah – it’s not perfect but I’ll watch it and recommend it as long as it’s on. I like the characters – they play their characters really well. I have to remember that they are supposed to be teenagers who are inconsistent, emotional, irrational yet facing their diseases with incredible maturity. Keep it on!!!

    Why don’t the ratings also include streaming services? I watch the show ASAP every Thursday but it doesn’t count? I’d watch it on but I don’t want to wait 8 days.
