Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Undeclared is Judd Apatow at his best: relatable, imperfect characters in real-life situations with riotously funny results. This short-lived series was Apatow's second, a follow-up to Freaks and Geeks, and takes place in college, so the content is slightly more mature (though nothing like his later works) and frequently deals with sex, drinking, and, to a lesser degree, drug use (though nothing's shown). Teens talk frankly about sleeping around and "experimenting" with sex, plus there are implications of masturbation and intercourse itself. They also drink -- a lot at times -- and it's presumed that this is the norm. Apatow's protagonist is an earnest, well-intentioned frosh trying to experience all the college years have to offer, but even in the midst of the mayhem and temptation, he usually shows impressive self-control.

Sexual Content

Not surprisingly, sex is a frequent topic of conversation among these college kids, who aren't bashful about discussing phone sex, STDs, blue balls, etc. It's common knowledge that much of the student body is sexually active, especially Lloyd, the popular English bloke who has a different girl in his bed nearly every night. The act itself isn't shown, but couples kiss and are shown together in bed.


Playful fistfights and minor injuries.


"Damn," "hell," jackass," and "sucks," but they're not a constant presence in conversation.

Social Behavior

The series takes a comical look at the awkward college years through the eyes of a well-intentioned freshman who stumbles through coming-of-age experiences like losing his virginity and getting his first job. The characters don't always make the best choices, and the consequences for their mess-ups are predictably inaccurate, but it's all in good fun. Steven tries to stay on the straight and narrow as much as possible, but when he pushes boundaries, he always learns something from the result.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Copious drinking in some scenes (as when the friends inherit a keg and set out to drink all of it in one sitting). There's often talk about drug use, typically in the form of bongs, and some collegiates are said to have hit the bong too hard and act a little spacy.
