This show is hilarious. However, there is heavy sexual stuff I must discuss. Around season 3, Penny and Leonard are often seen in bed together, (the sheets cover any inappropriate parts.) and they often discuss their sex with their friends and each other. In one episode, Howard builds a giant hand, and uses it to sexually pleasure himself. However, it gets stuck, so he has to call his friends to take him to the emergency room. (His excuse is he tripped and fell on it.) Sheldon often refers to sex as "coitus" which may go over kid's heads. In one episode, the men have a contest where whoever holds on to the "one ring" the longest gets to keep it. Penny walks past Leonard while the men are all still holding on to the ring; and she taunts Leonard by waving a pink-striped bag; and tells him it was from Victorias Secret. He stares at her, and gives up by letting go of the ring; and walks into penny's room. In one episode, Raj and Leonard hire a prostitute to be Howard's girlfriend. Once you move past the sex stuff, it's a great show. Sheldon is a great role model; he shows his brains often. Also, I think he never has sex in the show (I haven't watched every episode.) very minimal language; "crap" "d-mn" characters sometimes get drunk. Overall, a great, funny show for 11+.
