Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that even though it's pretty tame from a content perspective -- a bit of kissing and drinking and rare uses of "damn" are about the worst of it -- this witty British sitcom isn't likely to interest teens, since they won't relate to the aging characters' issues.
Is It Any Good?
This delightful show will keep adult viewers in stitches with its sharp writing, brilliant cast, and realistic storylines that bring fresh humor to common situations like meeting a spouse's ex, overcoming little uncertainties in a new marriage, and observing an adult daughter's love life. Palmer and Dench are spot-on choices for these wonderful characters, whose genuine affection for each other is a refreshing highlight to the series. But if your teens roll their eyes at the show (and don't be surprised if they do), invite your spouse to join in the fun with you.
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.
