A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series presents friendship as a positive thing, but it also includes storylines about infidelity. A marriage between a straight woman and a gay man is a source of humor; a positive relationship between two gay men is included. Depicts a man attempting to commit suicide as being funny.
Sex, Romance & Nudity
Dialogue includes sexual innuendo (mostly the type likely to go over younger viewers' heads). Some making out, but no simulated sex acts.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this sitcom finds its humor in adult relationships and mature themes such as infidelity and homosexuality. One of the main characters is openly gay and is seen sharing a bed with his partner, and there are references to another character's sexual orientation. Parents should also know that one character is suicidal, but that his depression appears to improve over time.
Is It Any Good?
For anyone who ever wondered what happened to their grade-school classmates, THE CLASS lets you see what happens when the former members of one class actually get to find out. Witty and fairly smart -- if not exactly breaking any new sitcom ground -- The Class is produced by David Crane, James Burrows (both executive producers of Friends), and Jeffrey Klarik.
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.
