Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this British comedy series about the exploits of two best friends -- who constantly insult and belittle each other -- is coarse and crass, as well as often nonsensical. The creators/stars have a big following for their act on stage, on the radio, and now on TV, so teens may already be aware of the show and want to watch. Expect a fair amount of swearing, plenty of drinking (sometimes to excess), and lots of references to sex. In other words? Typical Adult Swim fare.
Some references to sex, including prostitution and oral sex.
Some swearing, including "s--t," "f--k," "d--k," and "balls."
The comedy on this show is very guy-oriented, with lowbrow jokes about failed efforts to meet women, sexual encounters gone awry, and plenty of drinking. The main characters clearly have a strong friendship ... which they demonstrate by constantly teasing, mocking, and belittling each other, albeit in a "loving" manner.
Beer cans are visible in several scenes; Heineken appears to be a favorite. Some references to other TV shows and movies -- sometimes obvious and sometimes more subtle.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A fair amount of drinking, jokes about drinking, and making plans to go drinking. Characters are shown playing drinking games, getting drunk, and suffering from hangovers.
