'Preachy beyond belief'

"With the possible exception of Roman Polanski, I suspect I might have been the only adult male over the age of 40 who watched the second-season opener of the ABC Family dramedy The Secret Life of the American Teenager earlier this week. . . .
"[A]part from the vaguely titallating premise and promise of the show's title, the thing is safe as milk. Skim milk. Soy milk. . . .
"It's preachy beyond belief and, for all the bad stuff that's supposed to happen to the characters, it plays out in a world that is about as menacing and gritty as the dancing gangs in West Side Story."
