Is it funny?? Yes would I let young kids watch? No

Okay so I absolutely love this series and find it to be quite hilarious I love Sam but the question is what is this sending kids as a message that alcoholism is okay?? It really isn't I've never Drank but I know people who have and it's not good I love the characters here it's a good funny show just please watch with your teens you'll love it I guarantee it but also point out ways to handle things that don't involve that

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This surprisingly upbeat series takes a unique approach at chronicling a woman's efforts to remain sober with a smart sense of humor. Thanks to good writing and solid, nuanced characters, it offers an entertaining narrative that successfully balances the difficult and transformational process of recovery with comedy-infused tribulations and ironies of every day life. The result is a show that's both amusing and meaningful, and one that challenges the stigmas associated with sobriety in a society that glorifies alcohol. Viewers who have experience with addiction and recovery will find Single Drunk Female to be honest in its approach, while those who don't may find themselves thinking differently about what being in recovery really means.
