Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated

The dark comedy offers a unique blend of humor and drama as it combines a behind-the- scenes look at the seedy world of loan sharking with the story of a close-knit, supportive family. As a result, even though Morgan and other family members resort to bribing and occasional physical violence to conduct their business, it's hard not to like them -- or at least root for them when somebody goes after them.

But while the show affirms the importance of family, the Buffkins' efforts to profit from people in need doesn't make Easy Money an ideal pick for young viewers. There's also some strong sexual innuendo, fist fights, drinking, and occasional drug references. That said, older teens and adults may appreciate the show's solid writing and may find the characters and plotlines entertaining enough to while away an evening.
