Positive Messages

A pro-marijuana theme is the main message.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Sharee and Jeff misguidedly try to help others.


Lots of fantasy, humor-based violence, no blood. Women slapped.


Strong sexual innuendo; masturbation, porn, an extramarital affair.


"Bitch," "dick," "tits," "pussy"; "s--t"; "f--k" bleeped.


Sharee works at Hertz.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Characters smoke bongs, joints.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Time Traveling Bong is a comedy series that (not surprisingly) centers on marijuana smoking. There's also lots of cursing ("f--k" isn't bleeped in streaming versions), very strong sexual innuendo, and violent moments offered in a humorous context (with no blood). While there's some light history (think Drunk History), it's primarily a goofy show that will probably appeal to teens; parents can definitely open up a conversation about marijuana.

What's the story?

TIME TRAVELING BONG is a comedy series about a pair of cousins experiencing the highs and lows of time travel with the help of a magical pot-smoking device. Shares (Ilana Glazer) and Jeff (Paul W. Downs) enjoy a rather mundane life while sharing an apartment in New Jersey. But after a strange turn of events, they stumble upon a bong that, when smoked, will transport them to places from the past and in the future. Their lives are now unpredictable, as they try to survive during some scary, zany, or just plain weird moments.

Is it any good?

From ancient Greece to Salem, Massachusetts, the humorous series offers lots of funny moments thanks to some good writing and great comic timing. Despite some predictable travel locations and expected drama, it also manages to offer some quick moments designed to point out racism, sexism, and other social issues.

Not everyone will be comfortable with its obvious pro-marijuana themes, especially since the series has strong teen appeal. But if you choose to look past the lighting up, what you'll find is a lighthearted comedy with a silly premise that somehow manages to make you laugh one goofy scene at a time.
