Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Take My Wife is a comedy series about a married lesbian couple who work as stand-up comics. There's lots of cursing, crude sexual references, and some sexual innuendo. There's some fake violence, as well as references to sexual assault. Stereotypes and discrimination are discussed, as are subjects like marriage, having children, and other grown-up themes. Sometimes drinking is visible.
Is It Any Good?
This sharp comedy series offers lots of laughs thanks to smart writing and a believable story world. Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher, who also write and produce the show, create relatable, humorous representations of themselves. The quirky cast of characters, played by funny folks like Zeke Nicholson and Laura Kightlinger, Clea Duvall, and musicians Tegan and Sara also add to the fun mix.
This series is groundbreaking, as it continues to heighten the visibility of the LGBTQ community on television. But Take My Wife has a broader appeal, thanks to the fact that it's as much about the challenges the characters face as struggling comedians as it is about their sexual orientation. Ultimately, it's a fun, breezy show that's both funny and endearing.
