Community Reviews

age 12+

One of the best Sitcoms of all time. This show is OK for anyone over the age of 12.

I don't get why people say its only for adults. This show is a must see for anyone over age 12+. I mean I know the show has moderate swearing but when compared to shows like Family Guy this show looks like Thomas and Friends in terms of adult content. Plus unlike modern comedy its actually funny. I would recommend this show to anyone older than 12. Under 12's should ask their parents before watching.
