Tv Review: The Fosters

Tiffany Stavrakas, Staff Writer

The fosters is a TV show based around kids living with a foster family that is very diverse. The parents are both mothers (Lena and Stef), Stefs birth son is Brandon, and they adopted Mariana and Jesus (twins) as well as Callie and Jude who are brother and sister. Stef is a white police officer and Lena is a mixed school board administrator.

This show displays many things that other shows don’t. It gives you the raw effect of what the world is actually like. Callie is always running into trouble with authorities, she’s the classic distressed teenager. Brandon as well as the twins go through many struggles during high school just like everyone else. Brandon wanted to be a pianist for the longest time but throughout the series he has many struggles involving this. Mariana has the brains in the family for sure, although some events in this show demonstrates that even if you’re smart you can still make mistakes. Jesus is struggling with ADHD, he has many problems while trying to figure out whether he wants to take the medicine for it or if he wants to find other alternatives. Jude is the youngest and goes through trying to find himself in a generation that isn’t quite accepting as the one we live in now.

The show portrays trouble, love, heartache, struggles and many things that all of us have experienced in our lives.
