A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The company will do almost anything to win a contact. One character repeatedly questions the boss' ethics and business acumen, while the boss insists on taking any and all jobs, no matter how demeaning.
Violence & Scariness
Several scenes feature comically simulated, over-the-top violence. The characters must simulate various elements of fictional video games, including torture and warfare. These scenes are obviously fake, but there are some brief graphic images.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Some partial nudity -- a male character appears nude, with a large electronic black box blocking his private parts (it's labeled â€œMangina Censored"). Also plenty of sexual references/images (the company provides footage of lap dances, for example), and one female character frequently appears in a bikini for no particular reason.

Lots of swearing, including â€œs--t,â€ â€œp---y,â€ â€œa--hole,â€ â€œbitch,â€ and more, though oddly, a few words are also bleeped.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this mockumentary series about a struggling company that provides content for video games isn't intended for kids. Expect simulated torture scenes, plenty of sexual references, lots of swearing (including "s--t"), some partial male nudity, and a young woman who often shows up in a bikini for no obvious reason. There are also a lot of over-the-top set pieces, most of which feature a scruffy, overweight guy squeezed into an unappealing skintight blue suit.
Is It Any Good?
MoCap, LLC uses the increasingly popular mockumentary format, providing a "behind-the-scenes" look at a struggling company. When it's done well (a la The Office), this approch offers characters the chance to directly explain their aspirations and motivations during key dramatic moments. When done poorly, as it is here, it serves more as a crutch that the writers use to string together a bunch of loosely connected scenes that don't really fit together into a narrative.
The basic premise -- that the company is so desperate they'll take on any gig -- gives the creators license to throw in almost anything. Let's torture the guy in the blue suit! What about an Apocalypse Now spoof! Hey, can we paint the intern green? These scenes play more like skits from Saturday Night Live (and not during one of the show's better seasons) than a coherent story.
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.
