Good Show

This Show is For Young adults Who Can Handle the Presence Of Strong Language. There are A lot of F-Bombs and More. There are some Dark jokes As well as Smoking and Drinking (some Drugs too) but is manageable for the young audience.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Good for teens

This show would be pretty good for teens because while there is swearing and it has pretty dark themes, there is not a lot of violence or icky sex stuff. Plus this show is really good.
