It is overall a good show for families to sit around and bond. Yes there is some alcohol in the series,but nothing to severe. Some story lines can be a bit mature for certain ages. There is violence like fist fights and some war scenes. It does hold an educational value teaching about the Great Depression and World War Two. There is rarely any language but when there is it is the h or d word. There has been 3 episodes I know of where a character experiments with smoking but quits. There have been episodes where there is childbirth ,but it is not bad. There is always a good positive message in every episode. Overall a great family show.
