French is one of a tight-knit group of slackers who work dead-end jobs in the hipper-than-thou neighborhood of Mission Hill in this show from the former executive producers and head writers of "The Simpsons."

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this show satirizes the young-adult lifestyle in the big city, which means there's plenty of iffy content for younger viewers. Characters are one-dimensional and, on the whole, unmotivated, often drifting through life and jobs in typical slacker fashion. The show touches on mature themes like masturbation, sexual experiences (and lack thereof), and homosexual relationships, featuring a long-time male couple whose intensely up-and-down relationship is played for laughs. Younger viewers will miss much of the social context that lends itself to the humor of the show.

Sexual Content

Guys and girls talk about "getting laid" female characters wear skimpy and revealing outfits; masturbation is mentioned. In one episode, an older brother wishes his younger brother a happy first date by giving him a condom. The next-door neighbors are a gay couple whose "relations" can sometimes be heard through the walls.


Not applicable


Words like "hell," "damn," and "ass" are commonplace, and some euphemisms for sex ("screw," "get laid") are used.

Social Behavior

The show is devoid of parental influence, so teenage Kevin has only his lazy, sexually motivated, cool-conscious older brother to learn from. Most of the young adult characters are shallow and do only enough to get by in life, often lying and cheating.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social scenes in bars or at private parties include drinking and smoking, although it's limited to the over-21 crowd.
