A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Although there's a definite hip-hop culture slant, Crockett's comedy is pretty inclusive (in that no one is generally safe), and the cast includes actors of a variety of races. That said, there's not really a "message."
Positive Role Models
While Crockett himself could be considered a positive role model (based on talent alone), his characters have magnified flaws and aren't meant to be placed on a pedestal.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some sketches involve sexual humor, including women in lingerie and blurred male nudity.

Bleeped swearing (including "f--k" and "s--t"), plus audible words like "whore," "hell," "ass," "bitch," etc.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Audience members drink alcohol in the background during the show. Some jokes/skits also involve drinking alcohol and using illegal drugs like marijuana.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the content here doesn't push the envelope as much as, say, Chappelle's Show. But the sketches are still edgy enough to include bleeped language (including "f--k" and "s--t"), audible usage of words like "whore," "ass," "bitch," etc., and sexual humor (including blurred nudity). There's also a late-night feel to the proceedings, complete with audience members drinking alcohol in the background while they watch the show, along with occasional drug humor.
Is It Any Good?
OK, so not everybody will relate to all of In the Flow's cultural references. (For example, do you even know who Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao is, let alone know him well enough to appreciate a spot-on impersonation?)
But nobody can deny that Crockett has a real gift for mimicry. His takes on Simmons, Woods, and Chappelle are particularly uncanny -- and once you Google "Manny Pacquiao," you'll see that even that one is pretty darn good.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
