Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this comedic travel series follows a sheltered, narrow-minded man in a journey around the world to capture his discomfort and ignorance for the sake of humor. Although his viewpoint is played strictly for laughter, kids may pick up on his perspective as a viable way to view the remarkable diversity and beauty present across the globe. For older kids able to understand the humor, the series presents a clever travelogue of some amazing locations with a healthy dose of laughter.

Sexual Content

Some blurred non-sexual nudity.

Violence

Some painful scenarios -- fire massage, genital twisting, kung fu feats -- but nothing actually violent.

Language

Use of gateway language such as "damn" and "hell," as well as British slang such as "bloody," and "shat" -- occasional stronger words bleeped out.

Social Behavior

The show focuses on one man's inability to understand the cultural differences of others, and his narrow-minded comments are played for laughs. On the other hand, the fact that the series routinely mocks his narrow viewpoint actually supports and encourages diversity.
