Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the show includes some sexual humor and antisocial behavior, mostly from Faith. While Hope balances out Faith's shallow, narcissistic behavior, Faith is definitely the more glamorous character and might therefore be more appealing to younger viewers.
Is It Any Good?
Full of wacky situations and goofball comedy, Hope and Faith is likely to be enjoyed by parents and older kids alike, the sitcom falls in the same vein as other shows featuring twosomes, like Laverne and Shirley and Perfect Strangers.
While Hope and Faithisn't particularly poignant or thought-provoking television, it's a light comedy that is likely to appeal to many age ranges. Featuring the underlying current of sisterly love and the dynamic of Hope as the straight man to Faith's over-the-top antics, the show is pleasant viewing. By and large, the show is a standard family sitcom, but there is some sexual humor that would make it inappropriate for younger viewers.
