Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there's some swearing and sexually suggestive conversations. Because the series is about finding love and matchmaking, sexual references are frequent.

What's the Story?
LOVE INC. is in the business of matchmaking for those looking for their soul mate and more often, those who are dating-deficient. But the clients play second fiddle to the lovelorn consultants. Clea (Holly Robinson-Peete) is the owner and a recent divorcee, while Denise (Busy Philipps) is her best matchmaker -- and loneliest. Viviana is a man-hungry receptionist looking for someone to marry so she can get her green card, Francine's a fashionista, and Barry's the photographer -- these characters make up the rest of the cast as the quirky sidekicks -- all of whom have their own woeful battles finding true love.
Is It Any Good?
Love life analysis over coffee frames each episode. Stereotypical clients (an elderly woman, a geeky group of guys, a lesbian) are often a small challenge, but nothing the pros can't ultimately handle. Bottom line: OK for older teens if they show an interest, but there are far better programs for them to spend time on.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about the focus the women put on romantic relationships -- is this normal? Healthy? Do men focus this much on love? Is it possible to be happy without being in a relationship?

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.
