Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sitcom contains jokes about sexuality, intoxication, lack of education, and religion. The program revels in its political incorrectness, using a one-legged woman and a gay character for quick laughs, but redeems its main character and itself by having him learn a lesson about not judging others and searching for forgiveness for past wrongs.

Sexual Content

Kissing, references to infidelity. Some skimpy outfits, couples shown in bed together in various states of undress (nothing explicit). Plenty of talk about Joy's breasts.


Some slapstick, unrealistic violence -- punching, gunfire.


Fairly frequent use of words like "damn," "hell," and "son of a bitch."

Social Behavior

Amid its often politically incorrect humor, the show's central message is about making amends and earning forgiveness. Some of that is accomplished in less-than-mainstream ways, and the characters don't always do exactly the right thing, but ultimately Earl learns not to judge others, and others forgive him.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
