Amazingly funny - even for moms!

This show is very, very funny. Dialogue is fantastic. My 11-year-old absolutely loves it, but the content of each episode varies and not all are appropriate for him. We screen them before letting him watch, because a lot of the later episodes have sexual content that he's just not mature enough to get (would be too confusing for him). Most of the 1st season seems pretty safe for 10 and up.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism

For older Teenagers

Funny and brilliant. The violence in 3rd rock is pretty slapstick, the language is mild to moderate, but the sex references are very strong.
