Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that they can watch this quirky sitcom from some of the creators of Arrested Develompent with younger teens and up, thanks to surprisingly positive messages about generosity and altruism and relatively infrequent doses of language, sex, and violence. (Characters rarely say anything stronger than "jackass.") One character's drinking is played for comedy, although he rarely imbibes onscreen. Another main character is a wise-beyond-her-years 12-year-old girl who doubles as the show's narrator via a connective voiceover.

Sexual Content

Brief kissing and light sexual innuendo, including references to the two main characters having had a previous physical relationship.


Some comedic violence that's played for laughs. One character is an eco-terrorist, although his schemes (like mailing a "filthy bomb" filled with oil) never really injure anyone.


Use of words like "jackass" and "hell."

Social Behavior

Amid all the jokes, the show stresses the importance of doing good things for other people and slides in some surprisingly positive messages about open communication between kids and their parents.


Steven is very materialistic, but few of his "toys" are branded.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some characters drink socially. According to the voiceover, Steven is usually drunk at parties ... although you rarely see him drinking or acting any differently than he does when he's sober.
