A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Some of the guys are responsible, and some are immature jerks. Emphasis is on looks, "getting girls," and partying. Women only appear as eye candy and are very much objectified by the guys.

Violence

Lots of arguing and horseplay. Some hostile pushing and shoving.

Sex

Discussion of sex and celibacy. Constant talk about women's looks (with the accompanying instant judgments). Scantily clad women dance provocatively. Potential for shots of sexual activity.

Language

Constant cursing, though most is bleeped. Guys call each other "pimp."

Consumerism

Cell phones are prominent, and the guys themselves are pretty materialistic. Lots of encouragement to visit the MTV Web site, where tons of commercials exist.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

Alcohol flows freely.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this reality show focuses on a group of young male friends in Hollywood. They drink heavily and frequently comment on women's appearance. Some of the men behave responsibly, while others are rude, inconsiderate, and possibly even criminal. Women play window-dressing roles only and often appear wearing very little clothing. Making money and wearing fashionable clothes is a major element in the guys' lives, as are fame and attention.

What's the story?

TWENTYFOURSEVEN offers an up-close look at seven fame-hungry young guys in Los Angeles as they cavort around town, hanging out in restaurants and bars, picking up women on the street, shopping in clothing stores, and talking nonstop on their cell phones. The group is made up of a club promoter, an actor, a filmmaker, a record producer, a couple of musicians, and a ladies' man. Greg Carney, the leader of the pack, is an earnest, responsible entrepreneur who's interested in producing movies and promoting clubs. His brother, the lead singer of an alterna-rock band called The Prom Kings, is the loose cannon of the group who flouts rules, makes bad decisions, and suffers the consequences. Frankie Del Gado, a good-looking recent Mexican immigrant, charms women instantly with his smile and accent but focuses only on scantily clad ladies and, in at least one instance, crosses the line when he touches a woman he just met too close to her breast (she slaps him across the face).

Is it any good?

This group of guys are constantly sizing up women and talking about girls' appearance, bodies, and clothes. There's also some discussion about "hooking up," especially in relation to Matt Baker, the actor who's been celibate for a year and a half. And when the guys aren't talking about women, they're drinking or recovering from a hangover. Folks interested in the behavior of twentysomething egomaniacal men might find this show appealing, but it's not something most parents will want their kids watching.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the values they see in the show. What do you think is the most important thing for each of these guys? What are their goals? How do your goals and values compare to theirs? Does it seem like these young men are having fun? What's fun about their lifestyle? Can teens picture themselves in Hollywood? What do teens want to be doing when they're in their early 20s? What messages do shows like these send kids about expectations for their young adulthood?
