What You Need To Know:

The “Summer School” episode of Netflix’s MR. IGLESIAS series starts in September where Gabe and all his students are getting ready for the new school year. Gabe helps Grace, one of his students, with her crippling social anxiety, and Abby, the new teacher, with her long-distance boyfriend Danny. Danny, who lives in North Dakota, sparks a lewd conversation in the office with Principal Paula, who crudely says she would totally hook up with Danny.

This episode is not quite as funny as the other episodes. Part of the reason for that is it has too many sexual references to be considered truly worthwhile. It also has some strong politically correct content, including a scene where a person attending Bible Camp is disrespected, and some feminist elements that tear down men instead of “empower” women. MOVIEGUIDE® finds the “Summer School” episode of MR. IGLESIAS is almost totally unacceptable.

Content:

(B, PCPC, AbAb, FeFe, LL, SS, A, DD, MM):

Dominant Worldview and Other Worldview Content/Elements:
  Light moral worldview where teacher, the main character, places his students’ best interests ahead of his own, marred by strong politically correct content which includes a scene where a girl mentions attending Bible Camp but is depicted as naive when saying so, feminist elements that tear down men instead of empower women, and a joke is made about President Trump, and how he’s allegedly failing as president;

Foul Language:
  Five light obscenities, six strong and light profanities, and a girl almost says the “f” word but replaces it with a quick series of euphemisms;

Violence:
  None;

Sex:
  No physical sex but about 15 jokes and insinuations are made, one joke references the size of a man’s genitals after a woman is depicted looking at it on a phone in a sexting incident, and there is a subtle promotion of student-teacher sex;

Nudity:
  No nudity;

Alcohol Use:
  Teachers all go to a bar after work;

Smoking and/or Drug use and Abuse:  No smoking content but a joke about smoking a joint is made; and,

Miscellaneous Immorality:
  Stalking is promoted and condoned when a girl wants to find out if her long-distance boyfriend cheated on her.
