This well-intentioned Afterschool Special concerns sexually transmitted diseases (STD) among teens. So much for good intentions. The show, starring Kerri (Lucas) Green, gets bogged down in a subplot about her father's affair. They should have given Dad (Dean Butler, who looks too young for the part) an STD. But they didn't, and the entire point of the subplot is lost on me. Despite some good performances, there isn't much here.
