Yes, the show has quite a bit of colorful language throughout, including the Billy and Michael characters.

Remember, the original movie on which this show is based was an independent film aimed at the adult audience, and one of the many astonishing things about its run was the spillover effect into the student audience as well. They may not have remembered the Coal Strike, or the period politics, but they got the character dynamics just fine.

Thanks, SnowWhite! That definitely affects my decision to take my 7-y.o. to see it. Maybe in three years or so, we'll go if the show is still running. I hope it is! It's one of my most favoritest movies ever, and I already love the score too.
