Season two upped the sex

I love this show! My daughter (8) started watching it with me and it was fine and enjoyable, but then suddenly the married straight couple majorly upped the sex, naked in bed, sneaking off to cars. Just tons of it very suddenly. Good for them, not for my kid, haha! Also, Marina plays up the "my kids make me drink" trope. Would love to see a funny, chill mom who doesn't need booze.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

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!
