Second Season- disappointing

First season I was hooked! I was thrilled to finally be able to watch a show with no nudity and no real sexual content. It was refreshing! I was so excited for the second season- and was completely let down. First episode was clean and I was engaged. Second episode- not so much. As soon as the episode turned explicit, we shut it off. Why the sudden need for graphic sex and nudity? It was so not necessary and completely ruined it for me. Excellent job at taking a great show and turning it into something just like all the rest of the junk that’s out there.

First Season was Bomb

Second season, not so much. Kind of tired of shows getting more graphic and more sexually explicit. Loved the first season, pretty done with the second season already.
