Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this sitcom finds its humor in the family life of a blue-collar American couple facing everyday marriage and job-related issues. The husband's troubles with his boss, the couple's communication failures, and the financial and emotional fall-out for a woman being a stay-at-home mom are typical household conversation. On a positive note, once they're done arguing (which is always played for laughs), both partners try to understand each other's needs and vow to improve their communication.
Some implication of sexual encounters to come, but nothing more than kissing is shown. Husband and wife sometimes discuss past sexual partners in teasing tones.
There's the occasional rough-and-tumble fistfight, but it's strictly for laughs, and no one appears worse for the wear.
Characters say "damn," "suck," "hell," "butt," and the like, but pretty infrequently.
Family and the struggles of the blue-collar worker are major themes here.
Brandless soda, beer, and junk food sometimes show up.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Adults drink beer once in a while, but never in the presence of kids.
