I just started season 1, and I need to ask something: the idea of 16-year-olds looking and acting like they're 30 is a thing with this show, right? There's a strange extra maturity to most of them. It's weird—and super-watchable. I didn't watch this show when it aired b/c the main girls all looked the same, and I thought that was both lazy and confusing. But it's gotten rave reviews from soapy-primetime lovers & I like a couple of the actresses, so I'm giving it a shot. Six episodes in, and I'm hooked, but these girls are so weird for 16 year olds. I'm supposed to notice that, right?

Please forgive the excessive gifs. Since we can't post them in comments, I fear I'm going a bit overboard. My apologies.
