Used to like it, but starting to realize that it’s too much

To everybody reading this, don’t watch this show if you’re under 13 or if you’re not like the type of kid that repeats everything you see. I loved to watch this show at first a couple years ago, but now I’ve grown up a bit, I’m starting to realize how over the line this show goes most of the time. I’m not the type of guy that doesn’t like shows like this, in fact I totally do, but compared to BoJack Horseman for example, it is just too adult-like and not TV worthy. There is way too much language, but that’s not terrible because it is blurted out on television. It’s with the sexual and drinking scenes and just straight up disrespect that draw this over the line. They make fun of god in the show, man. I really used to like this show but I just don’t feel it’s good anymore and is spreading a bad influence. Love how they do stop-motion animation though. That is awesome and quite difficult.
