Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this quirky comedy gently teases its intended audience of post-hip adults in their 30s and 40s, but otherwise has little iffy content. The show's humor is based on familiarity with the '90s, and the trends and characteristics of Portland, OR, and similar hip, progressive cities, which means most of the show's jokes may be lost on teens too young to understand the references.

Sexual Content

A character is a polygamist and squeezes another character's buttocks. Some simulated sex with thrusting movements, but no nudity.


Not applicable


Occasional language like "bitch," "hooker," and "pimp."

Social Behavior

Quirky characters are made fun of, but still appreciated. The overall message of the show is to take life less seriously.


Gadgets such as iPads, iPhones, and laptops are used as a joke, as are different websites.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A character says she is addicted to her herbal tea, and then says addiction is funny. Rare background drinking.
