The show depicts strong, positive family relationships between the Crane men, as well as strong friendships among the characters. There's plenty of pettiness, and themes include single parenthood, divorce, unrequited love, and other mature topics, but the undercurrent is all about being there for friends and family.
Positive Role Models & Representations
Minor pushing and shoving on occasion. Actions don't cause physical harm -- they're played for laughs.
Frequent (if fairly mild) sexual innuendo and farce that might go over the head of young viewers. Some making out and hanging around in robes/relatively skimpy outfits, but no simulated sex acts. Many of the characters are looking for love.
Mild: "damn," etc.
Ease of Play
Frequent adult consumption of alcohol, including beer, wine, and hard liquor. Prescription drugs are sometimes consumed, but not abused. Adult use of tobacco products is sometimes noticeable, particularly among supporting characters.
