Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this mature pay-cable series, though animated, isn't intended for kids. There's lots of strong sexual innuendo (one character is a working prostitute), as well as references to various sex acts and animated nudity (bare buttocks) and lots of bad language ("f--k," "s--t"). Characters also drink, get drunk, and smoke cigarettes; there are occasional references to hitting or slapping women; and occasionally a weapon is brandished.
Is It Any Good?
Because this animated sitcom focuses on weird scandals and ridiculous solutions to Tim's problems, there's no real message driving its humor. Although some episodes appear to be pointing toward some kind of meaning, they never really seem to get there. As a result, THE LIFE AND TIMES OF TIM fails to offer any real substance. Even the moments that are mildly funny are overshadowed by content like gratuitous swearing, strong sexual innuendo, racial stereotyping, and references to pedophilia and violence against women. Some adults may like this sort of thing, but it's definitely not for kids.
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.
