Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the main characters of this popular '90s British sitcom never met a drink, cigarette, or drug they didn't like. From double-fisting mixed drinks to popping unidentified pills like candy, these women personify addiction, and their perpetual drunken/stoned state lays the foundation for the most of the show's laughs. Strong language is also fair game ("ass," "bitch," and "s--t" are common fare), as are sexual references and slang anatomical terms like "t-ts." The main characters are selfish, irresponsible, and judgmental toward strangers and family members alike. In other words, nothing about this show is age-appropriate for kids -- but adults and mature teens who can contextualize the ladies' bad behavior and grasp the humor in it will appreciate the series' racy comedy.
Patsy is obsessed with sex, so there's lots of talk about it, as well as slang references to body parts like "t-ts." Two main characters -- and a host of revolving players -- are homosexual, and there are plenty of quips at thier expense. Other sensitive topics like menstruation and menopause are treated with humor.
No violence, but physical comedy often includes pratfalls.
Frequent, unbleeped use of "hell," "ass," "bitch," and "s--t."
Friendship is a major theme in the show, but other dysfunctional relationships and irresponsible behaviors are played up for laughs.
The ladies are big fans of the finer things in life. Some products (mostly British) do appear.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Eddy and Patsy are smoking, drinking, and/or using drugs in nearly every scene. They wash down handfuls of unidentified pills with bottles of champagne and mixed drinks, they smoke like chimneys, and their perpetual drunken and/or stoned state is the main source of the show's humor.
