What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Easy is a mature comedy series about adult relationships of all kinds. It contains strong sexual content, including simulated sex acts and nudity. There is some occasional arguing, and some episodes feature a lot of cursing. Drinking (beer, wine, hard liquor) happens throughout, and pot smoking is occasionally visible. It's not intended for young viewers, and it's unlikely that they'll understand the underlying messages behind what's being presented here.

What's the story?

EASY is a comedy series that explores the dynamics of sexual and romantic relationships. Each episode features a different Chicago couple negotiating the way they relate to each other. From a husband and wife trying to rekindle their sex life after years of marriage, to a pair of artists who find connections in challenging each other's work, it examines the different ways humans connect in a very real way. 

Is it any good?

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 BloomElizabeth 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.  

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about how sexuality is presented on TV, such as in Easy, and in movies. Even if it's offered in context, is it necessary to show explicit sex scenes to tell a story? What impact can this content potentially have on viewers, especially kids?

  • Families can talk about relationships. Who are you close to in your life? Why?
