#1 Episodic Messages
The driving force te family shows is typically the “episidioc message”. Thesis messages can range from how to treat others and yourself to how not to do drugs or please don’t have mom chaperon the prom.
Ter Lincoln Heights there is a running theme: It is not effortless living te a low income area but it has a lotsbestemming of good ter it too. Eddie Sutton is a cop and proud father of three children, hubby to a wonderful nurse- and is always on the lookout for justice. Sometimes the vertoning can get indeed intense and I beg for a commercial pauze. At least I pause for a bathroom/snack pauze with Netflix.
Note: Lincoln Heights had a “quiet” cancellation around 2009, so there are only four seasons.

Let’s Meet the Personages of Lincoln Heights
Eddie Sutton is a ritme cop. He works the streets and he feels it is where he belongs. He helps to run the family huis(when he is there) and he cooks terrible food when his wifey has to work dual duty. Case te point: Manwich and scrambled eggs. Yuck.
On the serious side, sometimes Eddie can come off spil distant and cool and he never opens open to anyone but expects it from others. I think this is where Cassie gets it from.
Jennifer “Jenn” Sutton is the backbone of the Sutton huis. She is the black Mary Poppins. She has breakfast ready every morning and keeps track of what hier diabetic son munches. She is a brilliant healer that works at a free clinic and hospital.
Hier downfall is that sometimes she can come off spil very unforgiving spil seen te season Three and Four and hier youthful son Taye feeds from this vibe.
Cassie Sutton, 17 is played by the beautiful and talented Erica Hubbard. Ter LIncoln Heights she is the Suttons’ oldest daughter and she is fairly the artist.
She has serious flaws te my opinion. The main one being she is not aware of others’ emotions and how she treats them sometimes. Hier bf, Charles Antoni occassionally exposes his true feelings to hier, only to have Cassie stronk them to the ground and then she’ll sob overheen it straks. It gets ridiculous sometimes.
Taye Sutton, 14 is the quiet child, sometimes hidden ter the background. But by season Two onward wij detect he is a musical genius.
And with that musical discovery, he finds himself ter deep trouble with drinking, chicks and other bad decisions.
Lizzie Sutton, 15 is one of my dearest characters on the display. She is a rough básquet player, and she is about social justice all the way- just like hier dad.
At times she can be truly hardheaded. She listens to hier own mind and skips wisdom. But you have to love Lizzie. Te auténtico life, I read she loves helping people. It fits hier role on the voorstelling.
*Charles Antoni, 17 can not be left out. Albeit he isn’t a Sutton, he is Cassie’s bf and I suspect hier dad does not approve of the relationship all the way. And honestly, Charles does have a past that is dark and he comes from a screwed up family.
However, Eddie Sutton notices something about Charles. The boy is deeply troubled and he has Cassie to lean on. It seems no one is everzwijn there for him. Charles’ mom has a fresh dude ter hier face all the time. His stepfather wasgoed horrible to him and his efectivo dad is a high power criminal lawyer who does not voorstelling him love at all.
Yet the Suttons have embraced him, enfolding their loving arms around him.
