Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Teachers is an irreverent comedy series about a group of teachers who can't quite get their lives together. It's funny but contains lots of sexual innuendo, strong language, and alcohol and drug references. There's some stereotyping (especially of women) and some occasional fistfights, too. The quirky humor won't appeal to everyone, but dark-comedy fans or long-suffering teachers will probably enjoy.
Is It Any Good?
This well-written, irreverent series stirs up some laughs thanks to its quirky characters, crazy plotlines, and running gags. The guest appearances by comedy veterans like Alison Brie and Rob Corddry only add to the fray.
Although it feels more scripted than improvisational, there are lots of funny moments thanks to the show's great timing and talented cast. Comedy fans who enjoy derisive humor will find themselves laughing, but it's certainly not for everyone.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
