Insightful to single parents' struggles, but fair share of inappropriate innuendos
Disclamer: I am being objective in my review. Some of my comments may seem biased, but I am just going by observations of the show. You interpret as you see fit and decide if it's appropriate for you and your children. The show addresses the challenges many single parents face and follows a group of single parents of various backgrounds try to make ends meet. At times, the children seem to be more mature than their own parents. On the downside, sex is trivialized and drinking is a bit of a recurring theme too. Also, the male characters' (adults and children) negative aspects are strongly highlighted: Will, is depicted as immature; Douglas IMO is a satire at machismo; Miggy is flat-out dumb; Graham is ditzy and needy and Rory might be a closet homosexual. All in all, it's an interesting show, but is has some questionable stuff.

Who are the parents again?
So I liked this show based on episode one. It had some good humor and all the parents are doing the best that they can for their kids. It was sweet, but super corny and not the best acting. I chose to overlook some of the cheesiness because of the cute moments. I have continued watching it, but I feel like every new episode becomes less and less family friendly. There are multiple cases shown where the single parents lie about having people over when the kids come home. The kids teach their parents more than the parents teach their children. After a certain point I was like “who are the parents again?” Also sex is treated very casually. You would think that a show that showcases some of the hardships of single parents might not want to treat sex so casually. There have been so many comments, throughout the first few episodes, about all of these single parents active sex lives. A lot of times, they don’t seem to care if it is someone who would be good in their child’s life because they hide what they have been doing from their child. One very sad comment that stuck out to me was “Wow, casual sex is great. You guys were right! I don’t even know her last name and she doesn’t know mine. And she is sexting me!” This line was said from the most moral character who had abstained for 10 years since his wife left him, and all the other single parents told him that he needed to have sex - even if it was meaningless. I dunno, but those are not messages I agree with and not a show I would wanna watch with kids. Also there is some language, and one character was married to a stip club girl (just talked about), a child identifies as gay (main character whose mom is very supportive ), and in the sex scenes we usually only see characters (generally men) in their undergarments before it cuts away. Those are the other possible problems I can see some people having or wanting to know about before watching this show.

Hands down funniest comedy of the fall so far
Okay so after seeing previews of this show I knew that I was gonna like it but I really wasn't sure how much well I loved it I laughed out loud several times and I find it pretty family friendly . sexual jokes were mild at most a sexual question turns humorous.as for language.breif and mild .side note a child swears at the end played for laughs . But besides all of that it's a show about friends / family working to just get threw life
