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.

The show is trash, also full of 14+ content

The sexuality and sketches and language of the show is infuriating. Thans to only for the commercial which is aired during all day we had to have 3 talks with my 8yo nephew as to it is not acceptable to cheer and run around screaming "To tiddies!" And also the abnormal situations and things... I have a black humour, but hell. We had to tell him that sometimes it's ok to think about your funeral or what'll happen when someone dies... But having a funeral party on your birthday just to be there and getting mad is the reason some people in mental asylums. And yeah, he only watched the commercial and the pilot. Also there is only about 2-3 good one liners in the show. The sketches and the characters are terrible (the actors are genius each one but neither of these roles are their true). I usually watch it as they air it between 2 of my favourite shows, but sometimes it's that awkward and not funny that infuriates me to go out to smoke and shop until the next programme starts.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
