Amazing and Hilarious! Great for families!

I was really hesitant to watch this show at first. I don't like sitcoms much. They usually have inappropriate, raunchy humor that isn't funny, and just lack any kind of plot. This show was surprisingly good. The pilot felt like a pilot, but I understand that some of my all-time favorite show's pilots had that new feel to it. It was still good. I liked the casting of the three main characters. They felt a lot like real siblings. And the blonde little girl Gretchen was HILARIOUS and so was the other boy Kevin! Very funny. Its also a great show for families and is very relatable. I am happy to let my kids watch this. Common sense media, change your rating to 5/5! THIS SHOW IS GREAT! I am so excited for season 2 and my kids and my husband are currently binging the show!

Not for kids

This show is great!! There’s not really any drugs or sex but one thing i heard was that they said the word masturbation and porn?? I don’t think kids should know about that. But that’s it

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
