This is for High School.

This show has a lot of food and drinks in it. Parents show know that it is for kids but not for kids undec the age of 14 and up because they talk like 14 year olds.

There is a review that says all the “swears” the show says and not one single time do they say b--ch. I literally have rewatched this show over and over and over again. There are barely any cuss words. Even in the earlier, more mature episodes. Bobs burgers went to crap when they went family friendly. Early seasons get a good rating. Later seasons are AWFUL. Dreadful, really. Thanks Loren for being a sell out and ruining something that was once your masterpiece.
