One comment on “The Chi Season 5 Episode 5 Recap “We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off”

  1. S Wilson says:

    The only unrealistic aspect of the show is that the main characters have so much unprotected sex and get pregnant yet no one has caught an STD. That seems to not be believable as not many of them seem to want to have protected sex or be on birth control pills. Emmet does the same thing his father did with having many kids and he is still an immature child himself. The parenting skills in this show is laughable. Babies having babies and no one seems to care. They just keep doing the same thing over and over.
