Incredible, hilarious show.

Hear me out: the only thing that makes this show inappropriate is the swearing. Many, many uses of fuck, shit, bitch, etc. in each episode. However, if a 13 year old can hear one f bomb in a pg13 movie what can a few more do? As long as they know not to use that language themself, let them watch. One warning is that in season 1, episode 6 a nude woman is briefly shown in a non sexual situation. You can skip it if you want but you might not even notice it and that’s the only nudity in all 6 seasons. No sex ever. This show is hilarious fun for 13 year olds and up.
