Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this '80s sitcom (which still airs in syndication) centers around two men who pretend to be women in order to live in a cheap apartment. While their donning of drag isn't sexually motivated, it is dishonest -- although the dishonesty angle is downplayed in favor of wacky hijinks. The show also demonstrates some dated gender stereotyping, and the dialogue has its share of sexual innuendo (most of which should go over the heads of young viewers). Kip and Henry's relationship is a good example of a strong, positive friendship between men.
Some lighthearted sexual innuendo (which all seems pretty tame by today's standards), which will probably go over the heads of younger viewers. Subtle references to homosexuality.
Some shoving and pushing, but these actions don't cause any real harm.
The show plays to dated gender stereotypes including references to "dumb blondes." On the plus side, the main characters usually mean well, and the show presents a strong relationship between childhood friends. The few ethnically diverse characters are often criminals or service workers (except for Telma Hopkins' Isabelle).
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some limited adult consumption of wine, beer, and tobacco products.
