I absolutely loved this show! It’s fun and ever changing following different couples living in Chicago. It explores their sex lives and how they experiment with sex within their lives. An excellent programme but not appropriate for anybody under 16. Includes topics such as open marriages and frequent, sometimes unnecessary, nudity.

Too much sex

Decidedly mature, this show offers a raw, nonjudgmental look at how people relate to each other emotionally and physically. Easy underscores how complicated this process can potentially be and how there may be no solutions to make it easier. The intimate nature of each vignette allows for audiences to enter characters' personal spaces, exposing them during very honest (and sometimes vulnerable) moments. Adding to this are the explicit sexual scenes, which are more artistic than they are salacious but still a notable concern for parents.

Folks will appreciate the quality performances from actors such as Orlando Bloom, Elizabeth Reaser, Dave Franco and Kate Micucci. Also fun is the way some of them very briefly connect with members of other couples in the largely self-contained episodes. But there is an unevenness here, as not all vignettes are produced with similar depth. The comedic elements aren't consistent, either. Nonetheless, if you can get past this, you'll find an interesting, authentic exploration of adult relationships.
