Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Master of None is a comedy about a struggling actor in New York City. The tone is markedly sweet and realistic, with jokes arising from typical life foibles rather than frantic antics or mockery. However, much of the humor is quite blue. There are jokes about casual sex, oral sex, pregnancy, bodily fluids, and more, with vulgar words for body parts and sex. We see a couple in bed (no nudity) and hear sex offscreen, with moaning and noises. Expect frequent cursing, including "hell," "damn," "s--t," "f--k," and assorted other graphic language, particularly connected with sex. Characters drink on-screen and go to bars; no one acts drunk. Other than the language, sex, and vulgar jokes, this show is actually a great bet for teens, as the characters are kind and respectful to each other, and the cast boasts extensive racial and ethnic diversity.
Graphic discussion of sex, including pregnancy, oral sex, sexually transmitted diseases, masturbation, bodily fluids. A couple has casual sex offscreen, with moaning and noises; we later see them in bed together having sex (a woman's naked back is seen).
Frequent cursing: "hell," "s--t," "f--k," "bitches" (not leveled at women) and vulgar words for sex and body parts.
The humor here is much sweeter than on many comedies. Characters don't mock each other; instead, they find the humor in life's foibles.
