pass..

I was looking for a light comedy to relax to. In the first 15 mins the protagonist is sent a text at the office that read..." F*ck? " ...as a proposition I presume. I didn't stick around to find out. Too bad this is standard fair in comedy these days. Just not for me, or for kids.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing

amazing show, but not for kids

This is an amazing, empowering show chock full of body positive and female positive moments and realizations. I am thinking how I can omit certain portions to share this with my eldest daughter. The reason I have hesitated to do so is that sex scenes are WAY too graphic for anyone to see. As long as those are not shown to kids/teens, then there are so many positive messages for discussion in this show that it is a very worthwhile watch for anyone raising older teens to discuss with their daughters.
