Watch out -- crass jokes/reference to "having sex"

I'm so disgusted and annoyed. I read this and let my young son watch only to have an episode with Bryan Cranston making a guest appearance and making inappropriate sex jokes/references in an attempt to be funny, including asking "Can they have sex?" regarding a snake (not a genuine 'mating' question, just going for a laugh with boldly exclaiming it with the crass language), and going on to make a comment about how lucky the snake was when the host explained they had two "hmmhmm"s trying to be subtle and biological, and Cranston piped up with another not-at-all-veiled innuendo, saying how lucky the snake was, with a hearty laugh. I mean, if you're trying to appeal to all audiences, there's really no reason for that...and even if it is just your guest actually being inappropriate, there's such a thing as editing. My son ran right in and asked, "What does 'having sex' mean -- they said it and then they laughed about it."

Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Corwin isn't afraid to ham it up for the camera, and kids and adults alike will enjoy his good-natured goofiness and ad-libbed songs and jokes. The Jeff Corwin Experience is educational wildlife TV well suited for family viewing.
