Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this '90s sitcom focuses on a group of people working at a Nantucket airport who, over time, become one another's family. The show explores the bonds of friendship, love, and loyalty between them. There's some sexual innuendo, and some episodes deal with serious topics like infidelity and homosexuality. While these issues are addressed within a humorous context, they may be inappropriate for some younger viewers.
Some sexual innuendo (Fay is particularly prone to making double entendres). Some characters are occasionally shown in bed with each other, but there's no sexual activity beyond kissing shown on screen.
Pretty mild: "Damn," "hell," etc.
Two of the main characters are adult brothers who work through their problems to foster a strong relationship. The series also features a group of airport employees who come together as a family and are supportive and loyal to each other. Helen is an independent woman who runs her own business. Roy has difficulty accepting his gay son. The cast is all Caucasian; Antonio's Sicilian character draws humor from some gentle stereotyping. Brian is known for his irresponsible behavior, which often leads to relationship problems.
References to various Nantucket and Boston landmarks. Characters from Cheers occasionally make an appearance.

Some drinking (with characters occasionally getting comically drunk). Roy consistently smokes cigars.
