Bless the Harts is too "Adult-ish"

I started watching Bless the Harts when it first premiered last year on Fox and I have to say that in my opinion, the show was "ok" for me. The first episode was good, but the second episode was really weird because there's this one scene where Jenny works at a strip club and it features topless/nearly naked women pole-dancing and cavorting around (that scene was censored with a black bar from both the front and behind, but still a really weird scene) I watched almost all the episodes but stopped on episode 5 because my parents did not like the show. My Mom told me that "Bless the Harts" is too vulgar and "adult-ish" in her opinion. When I was about to watch episode 6 of Bless the Harts, my Mom told me to not watch Bless the Harts anymore, so I stopped watching Bless the Harts after-all. I agreed with my mom's opinion about Bless the Harts. That show is a little vulgar and "adult-ish" due to that really weird scene in episode 2 of those topless/nearly naked women. I didn't really like Bless the Harts that much. I got a little bored watching that show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (7 ):

This lighthearted series offers some positive messages by featuring a family that's rich in love despite their financial woes. While characters can be sarcastic at times, the family members spend their time trying to understand or support one another, rather than attempting to tear each other apart. The show's rendition of Jesus is humorous and contemporary, but the conversations that take place are both respectful and kind. It may fall flat for those who prefer edgier animated fare, but Bless The Harts works if you're looking for some pretty mild humor.
