Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Schitt's Creek is a comedy about a formerly wealthy family that falls on hard times. There's some cursing, often in jest: "son of a bitch," "ass," and "f--k" (bleeped). Siblings use a lot of argumentative language parents may not appreciate, telling each other to "shut up" repeatedly. Family members say unflattering things and behave as if they don't like each other, but the love between the Rose family is clear. Jokes about sex, body parts, and bodily fluids are common, but the series also contains a lot of empathy and shows LGBTQ and family relationships with compassion and heart.
Is It Any Good?
Levy and O'Hara are certified comic geniuses, able to breathe life into the most unfunny of situations. And over the years, they've turned Schitt's Creek's timeworn premise into one of Canada's most beloved exports. With over-the-top but remarkably nuanced characters, including Dan Levy's often prissy, sometimes mean, but ultimately open-hearted David, this "rich city people go to the backwoods and learn lessons" series is delightful. Add in O'Hara's utterly bonkers and oft-memed performance as matriarch Moira Rose, and what started as some very average comic material put over by great comic actors has developed into a wonderfully character-driven (but still totally insane) sitcom.
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.
