If "Cheers" is okay then so is "Wings"

Even though most people don't recommend it for 12 years and under it's an innocent sitcom. Rarely any coarse language mild TV-PG language, sexual situations are at a minimum, the characters are seen drinking alcohol, and at times it can get slapstick but nothing direct or very physical. But, overall this is a great work sitcom and if you let your children watch "Cheers" then they should be able to handle "Wings" okay.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Wings is often quite funny, but some of its themes -- including sexual relationships, infidelity, and, on one occasion, coping with a son's sexuality -- may be too strong for younger viewers. Nonetheless, it's an entertaining sitcom that reminds us that even the most eccentric of people can come together and become an extended family.

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.
