Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this relationship sitcom is targeting single and married adults in their late 20s and 30s with its social drinking and sexually charged jokes that, while age appropriate for its characters, may not be the best choice for teens. There isn't much in terms of visible hanky panky, but characters do kiss on camera. They also have one-night stands with strangers and occasionally make cheeky references to porn and threesomes. Audible language includes "bitch" and "bastard" in addition to sexually charged terms like "slut" and "gay" (which is used more than once as a comic-slur/pun by a gay character).

Sexual Content

Sexual innuendo drives a lot of jokes, but there's rarely any visible hanky-panky. Some light kissing, discussion of porn, comic references to vaginas and threesomes, etc.


Characters fall and trip for comedic purposes but don't get seriously injured.


Words like "damn" and "hell," plus "ass," "bitch," and "bastard." Sexually charged terms include "slut" and "gay" (used as a pseudo-slur/pun by a gay character, as in "Coming out is so gay").

Social Behavior

It's not really a "message" show, but the series does promote friendship, often over romantic relationships. If a character has lied or behaved irresponsibly, they usually recognize the error of their ways by the end of an episode.


Name-droppage is rare, but one episode mentions Skinnygirl Margaritas.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking in every episode, and drunkenness is played for comedy. A character drinks straight vodka but tells others it's water, another makes a "gin smoothie" for breakfast, etc. Some comedic references to drug use, including a pun about a nickel bag of heroin.
