Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this British sketch comedy series pokes fun at exaggerated character stereotypes (a crotchety grandma, an impertinent teen, etc.) as well as issues like mental health, homosexuality, and body humor. Strong language and mature themes are the main concerns, but it's likely that little of what's shown here will be new to teens. (It's worth noting that the show is a big hit with British kids, who've latched on to several of its catchphrases.)

Sexual Content

Sexuality is sometimes the brunt of jokes, as with an effeminate man who discounts assumptions that he's gay.


Not applicable


Various versions of "f--k" are bleeped; words like "Christ," "ass," and "s--t" aren't.

Social Behavior

Body humor (passing gas in a crowded car, for instance) and jokes at the expense of homosexuals, the mentally ill, and other fairly mild character stereotypes are the name of the game.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some scenes show adults smoking or drinking beer, wine, or champagne.
