Parents need to know that, even though it stars kids -- one of whom is young enough to be in diapers -- this mature primetime dramedy about an alcoholic single father and his six children clearly wasn't meant for kids. For one thing, there are graphic depictions of sex (with both male and female nudity) and occasional drug use (including pot and cocaine), along with the ongoing abuse of alcohol (by kids and adults) in its many forms. But along with that, the kids themselves engage in iffy, illegal behavior that doesn't typically court negative consequences. Needless to say, the family patriarch is a parent's nightmare of a role model who, in addition to drinking away his wages, spends half of his life passed out on the floor. In one instance, he even head-butts his son, causing bloody injury.
