Good show, but you have to know your child

This is a hilarious sitcom that shows both the heart and struggles of blue collar life. Despite some sarcasm and rude comments, there are a lot of lessons about family and sacrifice. But there is quite a bit of language and sexual references. The ratings for this show tend to be inconsistent. Some episodes are TV-G, some are TV-PG, and quite a few have been TV-14(DL). Most episodes are family-safe, but there are a few that might require some awkward conversations in the living room.
