Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this edgy, adult-oriented dramedy centers on a middle-aged woman dealing with a terminal cancer diagnosis. The main character has a teenage son and spends a lot of time helping a troubled high school girl, which may attract older teens. If they do watch, they'll see some sexual content (including nudity) and hear some strong, unbleeped language (including "motherf---er" and "c--t"). There are also a few semi-violent incidents involving fake blood, as well as some characters (including teens) who smoke.
Kissing and sexual banter. Occasional nudity, including bare buttocks and a distant shot of a completely naked woman.
Some arguing and verbal sparring between characters, plus a few instances of "fake" violence (i.e., a boy pretends to cut off his finger, a woman pretends to have slit her wrists by sitting in a tub filled with red water, etc.).
Both adult and teen chracters use strong, unbleeped language, including "motherf---er," "f--k," "s--t," and "c--t." You'll also hear words like "damn," "crap," "a--hole," and "bitch," along with sexually charged terms like "rack," "boobs," and "tap."
On one hand, the series promotes living honestly in the face of a serious illness and having the courage to make changes in your life. On the other hand, dishonesty and recklessness play a major role in the plot and the characters' actions.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some social drinking. A few characters also smoke (including the main character and one of her teenage students).
