Otto), and his prostitute next-door neighbor, Debbie (Bob Morrow), Tim deals with especially sticky escapades involving his epically bizarre boss, The Boss (Peter Giles).

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this mature pay-cable series, though animated, isn't intended for kids. There's lots of strong sexual innuendo (one character is a working prostitute), as well as references to various sex acts and animated nudity (bare buttocks) and lots of bad language ("f--k," "s--t"). Characters also drink, get drunk, and smoke cigarettes; there are occasional references to hitting or slapping women; and occasionally a weapon is brandished.

Sexual Content

Tim solicits and then befriends a prostitute. Lots of strong sexual innuendo, including references to oral sex and other sexual acts. Also includes references to homosexuality.
