  • Strong Language throughout the show
  • Stronger profanity such as "cock," "faggot," "pussy," and "cum" is said. "Fuck" starts being said season 4 and is used throughout the later seasons, but it is used infrequently. Occasional racial slurs are also used but are discouraged.
  • In later seasons from 12 and up, "fuck" is used uncensored. In Season 12, Episode 6, the word "cunt" is used frequently for shock value.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • In every episode the characters drink very heavily.
  • The 5 main characters are alcoholics
  • Drugs are featured a few times per season, some examples of these scenes include:
  • Frank smokes weed from a bong

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • In season 13 a character is stuck in a bear trap and continues to hurt himself worse and worse. This sequence although hilarious, may be disturbing for some viewers.
  • The characters very often show a high level of cruelty to one another. While it's nothing too bad, it may be emotional as they include references to things that may make viewers feel uncomfortable. All of this is done in comedic style, however.
  • Every member of the gang is a depraved egomaniac who constantly insult each other and them around them via their arguments or plans/schemes. Many of these plans involve some level of exploitation and some touch on issues in the news at the time. These issues are often dealt with by the characters with a level of insult and arrogance, but almost all of it is satirical and makes a point about the issue.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Charlie mutilates someone by biting their ear off, somewhat disturbing. In the same episode there's a surreal stop motion scene inspired by old Christmas films in which the gang brutally murders Frank in lots of graphic ways, such as cutting his eyes out or hanging him by his spinal chord.
  • In season 11 a game that's meant to be fun, is quickly turned into a horrific death trap and is very gory, yet hilarious.
