Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Compared to George Lopez's eponymous sitcom that ran from 2002 to 2007 and broke new ground in television by focusing on a Latino family, Saint George feels like a step down in quality, particularly for viewers who might be expecting more. But they won't get what they're looking for here, thanks to a plot that's full of holes, unfocused writing that makes little attempt to fill those hole, and characters whose comic flaws aren't really that funny.

Even more off-putting for parents with impressionable teens, however, is Saint George's portrayal of sexual harassment -- both from men and women -- as an acceptable source of humor, which sends kids a mixed message at best. From an aging uncle on the prowl who isn't deterred by pepper spray because he "loves hot food" to a sexually aggressive assistant principal who repeatedly puts her hands on a male teacher with no apparent repercussions, Saint George's "jokes" could easily be misinterpreted.
