Dark, tasteless satire--occasionally funny
Drawn Together is an example of a cartoon that by design pushes the envelope in terms of what's acceptable for TV. Nearly all of its humor is derived from tasteless, offensive parody, and extreme racism, sexism and stereotyping are fodder for characters and their morals. Many shows of this caliber (Drawn Together being no exception) purposely misconstrue values in a way that may be confusing to younger viewers--for example, a character openly declares his love for racism; others are driven by blatant misogyny. This type of humor should be alright for teenagers mature enough to separate right from wrong and know that it's satire, not commentary grounded in actual moral guidelines, but it's still a risky choice. Not only does the show sardonically glorify violent, crude and xenophobic acts, but it also contains frequent swearing--mostly in the form of sexual references and euphemisms--though "f--k," is bleeped. There's a heavy dosage of animated nudity (usually breasts) but this may be censored depending on the network by which it's being broadcasted. To top it all off there's animated blood (self harm played for laughs; decapitated heads) and heavy alcohol consumption. A bleak, mature, sometimes funny cartoon best for adults and older teenagers.
