Kids say: Not yet rated

Though the premise and characters seem completely ridiculous at first glance, this series is actually an enjoyable dramedy with likable characters. Five Bedrooms has elements of other fun roommate shows like Friends and New Girl, but doesn't quite rise to the level of heart and smarts found in both those real-estate-driven shows.

Parents of teens should know that a lot of the show's plot revolves around dating and sex, and they should consider if their teen is ready to watch sex scenes (sans nudity). Several of the storylines follow stereotypical romantic comedy tropes; for example, the main character Ainsley is still madly in love with a guy even though he's married and hasn't noticed any of the nice things she's done to support him. Construction worker Ben seems interested in little more in life than making passes at the other women in the house. That said, older teenagers will likely enjoy following how the different characters' lives interweave with one another and finding out how the lighthearted drama plays out.
