I absolutely love Sister, Sister BUT I do not think it is child appropriate and there are a lot of adult jokes present.

As an adult now, I am re-watching Sister, Sister and have noticed some hugely inappropriate things said. Their neighbour Roger, is constantly talking about wanting to see girls 'Naked', the term 'Horny' is used. Lisa and Ray pretend to have sex and 'moan' out loud for her mother to hear. Ray slips sometimes when talking to women, like saying "breast" when he means "rest" or "chardonaked" for "chardonnay". Don't get me wrong, I am HUGELY enjoying watching it and the jokes are hilarious, but I just wouldn't want my younger child watching it until they were older.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (8 ):
Kids say (26 ):

Sister, Sister tries to maintain a balance of parent involvement, even-keeled daughters, and typical teenage problems -- a successful formula that has led to a long life in syndication snice the series ended in 1999. Sister, Sister has maintained a loyal fan base and has managed to stand the test of time. Teens can relate as the twins experience typical problems in high school with friends, boys, and each another. Parents will like the fact that each episode contains a lesson learned, plus a family discussion.
