Offensive language

Characters use terms such as “son of a b*tch” and “d*ck”. Like most sitcoms this is dampened by the comedy (and canned laughter) that defines the series.

Sexual themes

Sexual references are made by the characters throughout both seasons. Sex scenes are implied rather than shown in detail; we see kissing and conversations about the topic but nothing is shown on-screen.
