Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that I Hate Christmas is a romantic comedy series following a single nurse who has 24 days to find a boyfriend before Christmas. The female main character is punished by society for being single and childless. Blatant sexism and gender stereotypes are joked about and made in the name of comedy. Repetitive use of swears like "damn," "f--k," and "s--t." Adults drink alcohol socially, some smoke of cigarettes. Most jokes and conversations center on romance, being coupled, and sex.
Is It Any Good?
The show has an entertaining, solid narrative and dialogue, plus quirky character dynamics, but the show's cardinal sin, being single and/or childless, gets a bit overzealous. In I Hate Christmas, the jokes on sexism and gender (and there are a lot) are mixed: some are funny, and some fall flat. The sexual jokes, emphasis on romance as worth, and strong language make this suitable for older teens.
