Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that teens who watch this mockumentary-style sitcom from the creators of The Office will find adult-oriented humor when it comes to sexual content, alcohol, and language (including a little bleeped swearing). That said, the main character is goofy but likeable, and her well-intentioned quest to perform her public duties as ethically as possible -- however misguided -- is a noble one.

Sexual Content

Sexual innuendo, along with suggestive euphemisms like "get laid" and "just the tip." Some characters are involved in interoffice affairs and/or one-night stands, etc.


Mild falls/slapstick moments, played for comedic effect.


Audible words like "hell," "bitch," "crap," and "douchebag." On occasion, there's also strong bleeped language, as in "f--k my c--k."

Social Behavior

Although the series draws its comedy from government dysfunction, the main character and her colleagues do manage to make some positive changes in their community...eventually.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Mostly social drinking, but characters sometimes drink on the job to celebrate. Any drunkenness is played for comedy.
