RICKI AND THE FLASH is a US drama about a musician who is drawn back to her estranged family when her daughter's marriage breakdown leaves her depressed.

Language

There is a single use of moderate bad language ('bitch'), directed at a woman in a vitriolic manner. Mild bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'bullshit' and 'damn'.

Sex

There are some moderate sex references as a woman is accused of dressing 'like a hooker' and a woman says that her medication makes her unable to orgasm. A woman also yells at a man about how he left a relationship when his 'boner wilted'.

There's also a mild sex scene as a couple kiss and fall onto bed, with the man removing his t-shirt before the scene ends.

Drugs

There are some drug references as a woman finds some marijuana in a freezer which a man claims is for medicinal use. A few people later decide to use the drugs but the smoking is not shown on screen and the group are only seen to be sitting around giggling afterwards.

Other issues include some verbal references to a woman having tried to kill herself with sleeping pills. Her whole family are distraught at the news and offer her the support she needs to recover.
