duncanville is a hilarious show

duncanville is a hilarious show on fox. i think this show is like the simpsons. i also like that amy poehler (the actress from parks and rec) created duncanville (who has also created nickelodeon's the mighty b!). the characters are amazing. i really like kimberly harris because she reminds me of tina belcher from bob's burgers and a little bit like lisa simpson from the simpsons. i also like jing, duncan, annie, mia (duncan's crush) and mr. mitch (duncan's teacher). i think duncan reminds me of bart simpson from the simpsons because both of these characters both get into a lot of trouble. this show also has a talented all-star voice cast like amy poehler (from parks and rec), ty burrell (from modern family), rashida jones (also from parks and rec just like amy poehler) and wiz khalifa (famous rapper). this show has some strong language like hell, damn, dammit, b***h, a**, etc. on the season 2 episode "duncan's new word", duncan and his dad Jack both say the f word, but it is bleeped out in the episode. ​the violence is not that graphic. there are a few sex scenes like some sexual references, innuendo and people making out. on the Season 1 episode "Undacuva Mutha", there's a scene where duncan and his mom annie go 2 a strip club and features topless women pole dancing. on the season 1 episode "judge annie", there's a scene where bex (one of duncan's friends from school) stands up with no bathing suit and shows the people naked, u can only see that her bare back is shown. On the season 1 episode "wolf mother", there's a scene where jack was spinning around on an emergency helicopter getting lifted up and as he spins around super fast, his clothes get blown away and it shows him naked. there are some drugs mentioned and some drinking, even some underage drinking in the pilot episode. also there's a lot of references on duncanville just like on the simpsons. like celebrity appearances/mentions, pop culture references, parodies, etc. overall, i highly recommend this show for people who want a good laugh and who love the simpsons. i think that duncanville is so much better than family guy and south park in my opinion

This title has:

Great role models
Too much swearing
