COMMENTS: THE THEMES ARE COMPLEX AND MATURE CONVEYED IN AN ENTERTAINING, ROMANTIC AND LOVING MANNER AND HAVE A STRONG IMPACT. THEY ARE ABOUT CAREER ADVANCEMENT AND OPPORTUNITIES, CHALLENGES (COMPETITION AMONG COLLEAGUES), INSECURITIES, RELATIONSHIPS (LOVE AND MOTHER AND DAUGHTER RELATIONSHIPS) AND BREAK-DOWN OF RELATIONSHIPS, REFLECTING ON THE PAST, DECEPTION AND LIES (FRAUD), EXPOSURE OF THE TRUTH, SUSPICIONS, BONDS, INVENTIONS AND DISCOVERIES, SECRETS, REGRETS, GIVING PEOPLE THE NECESSARY RECOGNITION, PROVING ONESELF, OWNING UP TO ONE'S ERRORS, ORGIVENESS AND RECONCILLIATION.
MOST OF THE THEMES ARE OF EDUCATIONAL VALUE WHICH COULD BENEFIT YOUNGER VIEWERS AND WOULD NOT BE MORALLY AND EMOTIONALLY HARMFUL. BUT, SOME OF THE THEMES COULD BE MORALLY HARMFUL TO CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS SUCH AS THEMES O FRAUD OR DECEIT AND LIES OR DISHONESTY.
THESE COULD BE MORALLY HARMFUL TO CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS BECAUSE THEY MIGHT FEEL THAT LYING IS A JUSTIFICATION IF ELEVATES ONE'S LIFE. HOWEVER, THIS IS MITIGATED BY THE FACT THAT THE CHARACTER COMES CLEAN AND TELLS THE TRUTH.
