Great show, for (almost) all ages

Duncanville is a great show! The only violence in it is mild, when a Mexican cartel guy gets his hand bitten off, but it's played for laughs and is brief. There are some sexual jokes here and there, but they're mostly in the pilot episode. Language is frequent but it's limited to ass, damn, and all lighter swear words. The episode always has some sort of moral, even if it isn't super obvious. All in all, this show is basically the lightest TV14 you will ever find.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (12):
Kids say (16):

This pleasant enough comedy series has some mildly amusing jokes and lively relationships between friends and family -- but like its main character, this show is pretty average. There's nothing truly memorable about the characters, and the interactions between them are often corny and predictable. There's no real satire, and the less-than-sharp writing doesn't go far enough to give it the edge it needs to make it outright funny. Duncanville is a slightly milder viewing option than other popular Fox animated shows like Family Guy and Bob's Burgers, but it will leaving you feeling disappointed if you're looking for a show with more bite.
