Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sitcom includes some racial humor exchanged mostly among characters of color -- but it's meant to be lighthearted, not hurtful or offensive. Most of the show's comedy is driven by its quirky characters, so tweens may not grasp the cultural background necessary to appreciate the humor. Between that and the fairly frequent references to sexuality (not much is shown, though), the show is obviously meant more for adults -- but there's not too much here that's inappropriate for older tweens.

Sexual Content

One elderly character is an unabashed nymphomaniac who makes bold advances at every man she comes in contact with. Though nothing but an occasional kiss is shown, dialogue includes references to women being "sexy," being seen naked, and infidelity.


Not applicable


Rare use of "hell."

Social Behavior

The show has some mild African-American stereotyping, and (lighthearted) racial humor is exchanged between minorities. In one scene, for example, a woman asks a black man to keep an eye on another black man's handling of her luggage; in another, a black man shows frustration over a Hispanic character's use of Spanish.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Occasional joking references to cigarette use and drinking, but nothing is shown.
