Heavy sexual innuendo, and references

Al takes Bud to a nudity bar in one episode where girls are shown with really bad cleavage.

Peggy always wants to have sex with Al and invites him to have sex with her in their bedroom most of the time.

Sex is mostly implied on the show.

Bud always talks about sex on the show.

The show contains a lot of sexual references, and adult themes which questions its TV-PG guideline.

The episodes "Old College Try" and "I'll See You In Court" are the most raunchiest episodes.

Kelly is implied to be promiscuous in many episodes; this is tomed down considerably in later seasons.

One episode, "Bud Hits the Books," revolves around Bud masturbating in the school library.

Not really that much violence, if their is, it might be very humorous. In many scenes of characters being hurt/injured/etc., very obvious dummies are used, likely for comic effect i.e. Bud falling down the steps.

some words like hell, ass, bitch

some scenes include Al smoking or drinking beer


The series is probably well suited for ages 14 and up
