Too much sex
age 18+

Great show about a young, newly wed couple, and all that entails.

This is a terrific show for adults, but children & teens are not the target market. The subject matter is adult in nature, and, while it is not terribly explicit or gratuitous, it really isn't appropriate for children.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

While Mad About You is certainly aimed at adults, parents will find very little to worry about if teens choose to watch (though chances are most younger folks will be bored by the adult shenanigans). The Buchmans often model passive-aggressive communication, and Paul plays the childlike half of the couple to Jamie's tsk-tsking grown-up, but otherwise the series' humor is innocuous and charming.

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.
