  • If my kids were not adults? NO WAY!! That show is geared for ADULTS not kids!! Like the Simpson's and South Park, the content is WAY to mature for little kids much less teens. That's just my opinion anyways. And you did ask for it.

  • Well..it is one of mine and my hubby's favorite shows. I dont see alot of harm in it. Growing up, my dad and I watched The Simpsons, Futurama, King of the Hill, and then as I got older, i started to like Family Guy. And I turned out just fine. No felonies, I never once got suspended from school, and my grades were great! Alot of parents worry about the influence and stuff, but if you enforce right from wrong, like every parent should, then you have nothing to worry about. If you do your job as a parent, the right way, then your child will be fine watching anything. Your child wont see anything on TV that he wont witness in school...just guide them in the right direction.

  • My son can handle watching anything without copying or repeating what he's seen. I have let him watch the Simpsons since he was 4.

  • My husband lets the kids watch it (only certain episodes...it comes on at like 6:30pm here). I don't particularly care for them watching it but whatever. They grew up watching the Simpsons, though. They've seen almost every episode and loved the movie.
