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.

Hilarious and smart but not for kids

The show is nice and smart. Every episode gets you thinking about what happened in a hilarious way but there is too much sexual innuendo for kids. The protagonist has a relationship that results in a pregnancy and some weird sayings, but the main plot is really funny and clever.

Not for younger teens

I was looking for a show to watch with my 13 year-old, and we found this recommended for 12+ here. The pilot episode mentions "love fluids" and buggery, with one character offering buggery to another. By the time the second episode got to a character who is a chronic mastorbator, we hoped out. Whoever rated this has very different standards than I do about watching things with my kid. As for the content, it was funny but trying to hard to be quirky and relays on the stupid/eccentric trope of Southerners. It had potential, but too suggestive for family viewing.
