Quirky show is a fun comedy for older teens

This show could be considered a bit weird but I think many people would find it more funny than anything. Definitely not appropriate for young children. Clever plot keeps the show intriguing along with hilarious, so it's a go-to comedy.

As of now sweet and laugh out loud funny

OK I have seen the first two episodes of this and I am going to say that I laughed out loud at some of the parts it is a bit more than your average comedy it seems to have a lesson of sticking together and tolerance for people who you may not like to be around but it is also kinda dirty language can be strong and frequent sex can also kinda be a problem it is a good funny show just let your mind remember that it is raunchy and wild

This title has:

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This goofy series mixes late-night type comedy with The Office-style humor to create a lighthearted and offbeat viewing experience. The overall premise is pretty weird, but works thanks to good writing and a talented ensemble cast.

Sometimes People of Earth goes from being funny to being a bit too silly, but fans of this kind of humor won't be bothered by this. Overall, it's a great show if you aren't in the mood to take what you are watching seriously.
