A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The guys are generally well behaved, though they party, drink, and hunt for women. Issues of race and prejudice sometimes come into play.
Violence & Scariness
Some allusions to violence in music. The group records a song for the Jackass, folks and there's some discussion about their crazy stunts.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Guys stare at women and sometimes make appreciative comments about female bodies. One episode follows one of the men as he meets a woman and brings her home and into his bedroom, where she straddles him.

Plenty of profanity, though the harsher words are bleeped.

Products & Purchases
There's definitely an emphasis on lavish lifestyles -- the guys drive a Rolls and live in a mansion.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Fair amount of drinking. One guy in particular drinks frequently, and the others joke about his habits.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this reality show -- which follows a Southern rap group's move to Hollywood -- includes plenty of profanity (mostly bleeped), a good deal of drinking, and some sexual activity. The main male characters ogle women and sometimes make catcalls. In one scene, one of the rappers takes a woman upstairs (ostensibly for sex), and she playfully smacks him while straddling him (still clothed). One character is known for his drinking, and the camera catches him doing shots privately. Other characters joke about his drinking. Issues of race and prejudice come into play, such as when the African-American rappers arrive in their fancy new neighborhood and get lots of stares from the Caucasian folks on the streets.
Is It Any Good?
While much of the show focuses on the men working and making career-building connections, there's also a fair amount of partying and scoping out women, and there are some semi-sexual scenes of playful, physical flirting in bedrooms. Adventures in Hollyhood also touches on some racial issues -- like when the Mafia's white neighbor suggests that the fellows will be more successful if they slow down their music and use language that "most" people can understand. In other scenes, white people gawk at the guys as they drive through their fancy new neighborhood.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
