The show presents a wide array of inappropriate and anti-social behavior, including lying, cheating, swindling, and more. None of these actions are intended to be cruel -- just a way of "getting ahead" (which is iffy in its own right). References to women and women's body parts are often sexist. At the end of the day, though, the Bundys, despite their dysfunctional behavior, clearly care about each other.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Occasional pushing, shoving, and hitting of peripheral characters. But no real harm occurs.
Strong references to sexual behavior, including masturbation. Peg is always badgering Al to have sex with her. No graphic presentations of sex, but some female characters (particularly Kelly) are usually in tight, revealing outfits. Bud is constantly on the make.
"Hell," damn," "crap," plus crude words used to describe body parts -- particularly breasts ("hooters" and "jugs"). Plenty of insults and put-downs traded between characters.
Peg is materialistic, but no brand-name products are shown.
Ease of Play
Frequent references to alcohol, especially beer. Early seasons feature Peggy smoking.
