Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's some unbleeped swearing (including "f--k" and "c--t") in this mockumentary-style comedy that follows famous "little person" Warwick Davis through his life as a working actor. There's some sexual innuendo, too (including references to things like genital size and anal sex), along with social drinking and some mixed messages when it comes to making fun of Davis' physical limitations.

Sexual Content

Some sexual innuendo (including references to genital size, anal sex, prostitution, etc.), but nothing explicit.


Some pratfalls, etc.


Unbleeped words like "f--k," "c--t," and "s--t," but not constant usage.

Social Behavior

On one hand, the show promotes diversity by building a comedy around the life of a little person. On the other, it invites viewers to laugh at his physical limitations. But while the overall message is a bit murky, Davis isn't just in on the joke -- he conceived the series (and its title) himself.
