Misleading reviews

I often check here to make sure there’s no nudity in a show. Didn’t come across anything so assumed it was fine. Season one/Episode two — nude backsides. I get it, it doesn’t bother everyone. But I’d like to know the content before I am surprised by something like that. Heads up.

WAY Too Much Sexual Content For a Child!

While I totally agree that this show is extremely entertaining, I made the mistake of not checking the rating b/c it was listed as a show you might like if you enjoy Fresh Off the Boat, which we do. Fresh Off the Boat has as too much sexual innuendo that I want my 14-year-old son watching. Too many episodes of Kim's Convenience have sex as one of its main storylines, from the 20-year-old unmarried daughter who accidentally leaves her strip of condoms behind to the parents having sex in aforementioned daughter's friend's bed (you watch this, too; it is not just mentioned). And even when it's not a main part of the storyline, it is mentioned constantly as a part of dialogue. If you're trying to limit the amount of sexual content your child watches, please don't turn this on. We're well aware of how important sex is to storylines anymore and how "everyone" is "doing it," but if you want to limit your child's exposure to these kinds of things before they're ready for them, I highly recommend waiting until they're older. The more they're exposed to it, the easier it is for them to think they're ready for it, even at younger ages.
