Hilarious but not for kids.
1 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am a 23 year old male with no young kids in my life. I don't know how exactly I started watching this show as I do NOT watch any other "teen sitcoms". Either way there are many suggestive jokes, but not any worse then the other comparitive shows. Many of the jokes can only be understood by someone with proper knowledge and I don't know how any kid or teen would get half of the humour. There are references to history and movies from the 80's and 90's which I find really funny.

Personally I don't think any teen or kid should be watching any of the "teen sitcoms" as they have far too much suggestive behaviour. (example: "Life with boys" (which airs after Mr. Young) had a scene where a "cool" kid SUCCESSFULLY peer pressures a "nerd" into smoking a cigarette. He is busted by his sister before he inhales but still its totally unacceptable)

BOTTOM LINE: Personally I think primetime family sitcoms are more appropriate for kids or teens as the suggestive (INMATURE) behaviour on these "Teen sitcoms" is not good for kids/teens self esteem or provide proper behavioural role models. At least on adult family sitcoms the maturity and consequences are much clearer. And more properly prepare young people for "real" life (yeah right). But its better then YTV. That being said as I male in my 20's I think Mr. Young is hilarious. Almost ONLY because of the background jokes that no kid or teen would understand. I can't believe they get away with that stuff, let alone air it. Who is really the target audience?
