Not for puritan sensibilities

People seem to be having issues with the language and the fact that the adults in the show seem to be having healthy and normal sex lives. Ted Lasso has amazing messaging and role models for children in particular. "Oh no adults have sex lives" is a weird stance to take in light of things like The Mandalorian rating much younger despite crazy amounts of violence, torture and death happening in each episode.

Beware

Heard this was a funny family show. My 12-year old loves soccer and I thought it would be fun to watch with her. The warning for Episode 1 was "Language". That's an understatement. Way too much use of the f-word. The worst part was one character saying of another, "I'd like to f... him in the ass with a splintered bat over and over and over." That isn't "language" that is sexual assault and rape. Absolutely not funny and just not necessary.

This title has:

Too much swearing
