Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the main characters (including the children) in this darkly comic cable drama are professional con artists and thieves. The show's premise relies on the fact that they deceive those around them. Husband and wife argue frequently, sometimes in front of their kids, and conflicts often include throwing objects. One character recently left prison and fights drug addiction. Viewers see her holding a needle to her arm, about to inject herself with drugs; she also drinks cough syrup and takes prescription drugs frequently. The oldest teenage boy smokes cigarettes and is a master computer hacker, while the youngest son prefers to wear girls' clothing (this is handled sensitively). Language is explicit, and occasional sex scenes are realistic, with a little bit of nudity.
Realistic, brief, loving sex scene between husband and wife, with brief glimpse of male bottom. Bad guy talks graphically about having sex with a woman while making thrusting motions.
Several fighting scenes, including punching and kicking until bloody. One scene of a pregnant woman being pushed violently. Very graphic car crash scene (though the blood looks fake).
Everything you can think of: "f--k," "p---y," "bitch," "a--hole," and more.
Complex -- the family is unconventional and practices gross deception and thievery. But despite these aspects, they love and respect one another and work together well. Some definite jabs at mainstream society.
Some expensive car brands are mentioned. General issues of lifestyle materialism.
Drugs / Tobacco /
One character struggles with addictions since leaving prison, including heroin, cough syrup, and prescription pills. Scenes include needles and track marks. While there are some comic moments surrounding the drug use, most depictions are clearly negative. A teen boy smokes cigarettes with impunity.
