Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this British comedy features plenty of pretty explicit sexual content. Couples are shown making out and undressing (men are shown naked from behind, but women keep their underwear on), and in at least one scene, a couple's sounds of passion are overheard from the next room. Subplots center on things like sexually transmitted diseases (who gave what to whom), unplanned pregnancy, and sexual preferences (a couple seeks out a stranger for a threesome; a man wonders if it's normal that his partner put things in him during intercourse). Drinking and smoking also border on excessive; most of the characters partake with no consequences. That said, adult viewers who can put such behavior in context will be entertained by the series' spin on the ups and downs of life and love.
No intercourse is shown, but there's plenty of foreplay (kissing, stroking, slapping of butts; in one scene, a woman grabs a man's crotch), sexual banter, and audible sex noises (moans, yells, etc.) from the next room. At least one scene shows a man's naked butt, and women disrobe to their bras. Dialogue often refers to topics like sexual habits (a man tells his friend that his partner "put things in me" during intercourse), unplanned pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, and having a threesome.
"S--t" is a popular (and unbleeped) expletive.
The series deals with controversial issues like unplanned pregnancy but omits their real-life implications and consequences. It also reinforces the importance of family and friends (no matter how wacky they are) and is positive about the idea of falling in love.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Drinking is common and at times excessive. In one episode, adults are shown consuming multiple rounds of beer, mixed drinks, and shots in a pub. Many characters smoke habitually, and there are some allusions to past drug use.
