About the certain scenes.

I’m some episodes, sex is present. But the thing is, you can’t tell half the time because these scenes don’t last to long at all. Some times, Rick (or another character), may say that god isn’t real, but getting advice from a cartoon full of jokes, (bad or good), is like saying that “video games cause violence.” It is only true if you think it is. The drinking is minimal, and goes by very quickly as well, so I wouldn’t worry about that. If you watch online or on TV, it gets censored and bleeped, but the DVD videos don’t. (The DVD may get censored, but I’m not sure.)
