Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this comedy about a catering business is full of all kinds of iffy behavior -- from drinking and unbleebed swearing on the job to employees accepting sexual favors from party guests. There's occasional nudity, and characters trade sexually charged barbs and insults (like "Dude, you just f--ked me in the ass") and make politically incorrect assumptions about race, gender, and sexual preference. In short: It's funny, but it isn't meant for kids.
Several references to masturbation (one employee received five warnings on the job for masturbating in closets; another uses a stain stick on his pants to get a stain out and is thought to be masturbating, etc.) and occasional nudity (including topless women and brief full frontal male nudity). Other examples include an employee making out with a teenage party guest and another employee receiving a hand job from a different party guest (although the act is hidden behind the dashboard of a car). One episode takes place at a party for the porn industry and includes topless women and a shot of male genitalia.
Rare instances of light aggression, like one character pushing another into a pool.
Unbleeped words run the gamut from "f--k" (used many times) to "goddammit." You'll also hear terms like "penis," "c--k," "nut cancer," "MILF action," "faggiest," and "pubes."
The show's main goal seems to be to confirm every shallow, entitled stereotype of rich Southern Californians -- and the bitter and/or incompetent people they hire to throw their parties. There's plenty of humor to be had in that premise, but it doesn't exactly convey any positive messages. A couple of characters struggle to overcome the cynicism that surrounds them, but that's not the main point.
Name-dropping is rare, but characters do mention things the Parliament cigarette brand and a specific brand of Cuban cigars.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Since every episode takes place at a different catered event, there's a lot of social drinking and some overindulgence. The bartender often takes shots of alcohol on the job and drinks after events with other employees. Specific drinks are mentioned by name -- like "G&T" (for gin and tonic) -- and some characters smoke. One refers to a time when he was "boozing, drinking,and getting high in the van." In at least one episode, a character takes Ecstasy.
