Great TV show

Almost Family is fantastically made for older teenagers and adults. It does a fantastic job at showing different views people have throughout life and the human struggle with ethics. I would not recommend it for younger ages due to sexual content and minor language, however it doesn't hold any offensive content. While it shows things like incest, adultery, and sex, the show is not showing support for people to commit those acts. It is just showing that it is a part of life. I extremely recommend for parents encouraging feminism, and all other feminists. The show does take about two episodes to really get interesting .
