Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this British comedy pokes good-natured fun at small-town life and an eccentric circle of gossipy women. A main character deals with the death of her husband and the change of direction her life takes in the aftermath. Strong language is sporadic, and body-related humor includes medical ailments like anal polyps and touchy subjects like Pap tests, all of which are played for laughs. While there's little content that's iffy for teens, kids may not appreciate the affectionate, character-based comedy the same way that adults (mainly women) will.
Occasional body humor includes comments like "Is it an itchy anus?" and mention of medical topics like Pap and urine tests.
Infrequent use of "damn," "hell," and "s--t."
The series exaggerates personality quirks and one character's mental health disorder, which resembles multiple personalities.
Rarely, something like a cell phone or iPod makes an appearance.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Adults sometimes frequent the neighborhood pub for a drink or two. Conversational drug references include mention of roaches and skunks.
