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.

Don't let your kids watch this alone

Children watching this should have adult supervision because of the adult innuendos and sexual situations, promiscuity and acceptance of the alcoholism as perfectly normal.

Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

Why did they have to make a joke about abortion?

I would not let me children watch this show, but I have to admit it was a guilty pleasure for me. The jokes are fast and funny. Unfortunately, "Jack" made a joke about taking away a woman's right to get rid of a fetus. Are you kidding me? Are you sure a fetus is not a baby? Do you want to joke about killing babies? Unfortunately I had to quit watching.

This title has:

Too much sex
