Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this adult cable comedy series relies upon vulgarity, stereotypes, and sexual innuendo for most of its humor. The language is questionable throughout with no bleeping of even the strongest words ("ass, "s--t," "p---y," etc.). Scatological and culturally offensive jokes are peppered throughout the dialogue, from both the lead and supporting characters. Heavy recreational drug use from the lead characters is frequently depicted on screen. The tone of the show's humor is unrepentantly dark.

Sexual Content

While there is little human sexual content, there are a great deal of sexual euphemisms used in a derogatory manner, and heavy sexual innuendo throughout. There is also a running joke involving a dog (in human form) engaging in intercourse with human legs and inanimate objects.


There is little on-camera violence except for the occasional comedic punch on the arm. However, the dialogue is peppered with threats of violence and violent language. The pilot episode also opens with an extended comedy sequence involving the lead character's various attempts to commit suicide.


Though there is no appearance of the "F" word, the show utilizes every other word it can find, from frequent usage of "s--t" and "ass" to explicit sexual terms such as "d--k" and "p---y."

Social Behavior

The show's fundamental message revolves around following your desires instead of trying to fit into the mold that society has constructed for you. The lead character struggles with his job and life choices before deciding to go after what he really wants, whatever that may be. Humor is frequently scatological in nature and occasionally relies upon stereotypes, such as the idea that Asian food is believed to utilize strange animals for meat products.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some episodes use marijuana as a plot point and both the main character and dog/human character smoke pot regularly. There is also frequent social drinking and a character who chain smokes throughout every episode.
