Post Grad Doesn't Earn High Marks in Reality
- Friday, August 21, 2009
If anything, the writers could've taken a cue from Reality Bites or Bledel's sitcom years on Gilmore Girls. Not only did Rory Gilmore go through many of the same scenarios that Rylen did after college graduation, but she managed to learn a little about reality in the process through genuine heartbreak and disappointment—something that's never really developed in Post Grad. Instead, you've got this whiny girl who's been without a job for like, two seconds, and you're supposed to care? Well, probably not in this economy.
- Drugs/Alcohol: Social drinking.
- Language/Profanity: A smattering of profanity throughout, including instances where God's name is taken in vain and one use of the "f" word.
- Sex/Nudity: Rylen's family—yes entire family—catches her participating in a sex act with the good looking next-door neighbor. Her dad asks her later if they "used" anything.
- Violence: The cat that Rylen's dad loathes is accidentally run over by his car. There's also a rather jarring car accident that takes place on the way to Rylen's job interview.
