Awesome definitely made for the Brit sense of humour

I Love it .. it’s not really for kids I wouldn’t recommend younger than 16 year olds really. I wouldn’t let my kids at a young age watch this at all it’s amid at older late teens and adults with a sense of humour But the humour is definitely a very British one .. crude funny silly and entertaining Unless your a prude . And get offended easy by the most ridiculous tiny things . Which lets be honest is now how everyone is these days . I’m 38 so don’t get offended by silly stuff that is minor . No kids allowed only older people.. it’s brilliant definitely taken my mind off of COVID-19 we need something uplifting and funny at the moment positive rather than doom and gloom that’s literally everywhere atm . But I guess the offended live a life of doom an gloom and over analysing everything,so will most definitely be offended by this show . It’s just silly entertaining and funny With a touch of crude Sex violence but it’s all done in a silly way ..Definitely worth a watch if your a person who is always smiling and happy and laughing.. your like the show if your that type of person ADULTS ONLY NOT for KIdS

Not a kids show!!!

Futureman is Not a Kids Show. The content is almost constantly mature in nature. So from an adults point of view, it a interesting storyline and the characters are halarius. There are frequent F-bombs and masterbation and sex are prevalent. Futureman is rated Mature and accurately so.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (10):
Kids say (2):

This show boasts a talented cast and lively, funny writing, but it was originally pitched as a feature film, and it shows in that the plot feels a bit stretched. Plot contrivances that could have been done away with in moments or seconds of screen time -- like Tiger and Wolf arriving to alert Josh of his mission from the future -- are expanded to a whole episode, to the show's detriment. At one point, the show gets caught in a Groundhog Day-style repeat, not because it serves the show stylistically or functions as a metaphor, but because we needed to stall.

That said, if you're not particularly in a hurry or are particularly amused by Back to the Future callbacks or jokes about wayward ejaculate, Future Man can be a lot of fun. "Do you have any useful skills at all?" an exasperated Tiger asks Josh after he falters in a fight. "I'm good at word jumbles," he tells her. "And Sudoku." Tiger and Wolf reacting to old-timey life is pretty amusing, too. "They have so much food, it's literally hanging from the walls," wonders Wolf at a deli, stuffing pickles in his mouth. In the future, he tells Josh, people eat garbage and rats. But in our present, we have food to spare, and a show about a possible apocalypse to watch from our comfy couch. Things could be worse.
