I love this show, but families should keep in mind that there is swearing, dirty jokes, drinking and smoking, and LOTS of sexual innuendo and discussions of sex.

Great role models

Great for mature viewers

A very funny but fast past adult humor This show demolishes whatever standards if Puns you have; fast paste and quick references make you laugh with a wonderful story line Most humor will go over kids heads and is definitely aimed for older kids/adults For anyone who gets the humor should see past the idiocy of the characters They keep great morals and values, aka beating hard right Nazis up, drug addicts are looked down on, friendship is a major role, monogamous relationship (Wayne breaks things off with a women bc he has feeling for another, not going back to cheaters, etc) Language is the biggest thing hearing plenty of it but no in a low brow way it really just sounds like people talking Drugs sex and violence is present Drugs in a dumb way which would show younger viewers you’d be looked down on for indulging Sex is very mature and healthy Violence is very fun to watch and not to gory Like your average batman scene

This title has:

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (3):

This smartly written, irreverent series, which was adapted from a web series titled Letterkenny Problems, is full of quick and quirky one-liners that create lots of actual laugh-out-loud moments. The events that transpire range from silly and strange to downright bizarre. But when woven together, they create a small but oddly endearing universe.

Some cast members appear deceptively simple at first, but soon reveal themselves be well-developed. Others are more caricature-like, and serve to parody some of the different social groups that personify small-town Canada. It's not for everyone, but Letterkenny proves itself a funny and creative series for those who enjoy off-beat and edgy comedy.
