Hilarious, Female-Driven Comedy

Hilarious and topical, but full of drug and sex references (marijuana is used often and sex toys are show and mentioned often). Most of the people I have personally seen say the show isn't funny or isn't for them have been men. The show definitely has jokes that men who don't have personal/intimate conversations with women won't understand. I love this show and am sad to see it end.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Crude, cliche, boring "comedy"

This show is absurd. It tries to force laughs using the crudest methods - like hiding drugs somewhere. The characters have no redeeming value, they are a bother and a nuisance to everyone around them. The episodes are a drag, stretched out the aim of the show of "empowering" women comes off as a poor attempt of being as edgy as they can. Not for any kind of family, and even if you're over 18, your time is better spent watching anything else.

Too much swearing
