Everyone should watch this show.

This show is amazing. The writing in the first three seasons is great because the plot is so captivating. It is definitely intended for mature audiences. It has lots of intense sex/kissing scenes with nudity involving all different sexualities and some instances of incest, threesomes, prostitution, sexual assault. Couples are recorded without consent. Lots of underage drinking and partying and use of drugs, drug abuse, possession of drugs. The show revolves around murder so there are some gory scenes but not too dark. Violence such as fist fighting, murder, and theft. Swearing in spanish, bullying. I recommended anyone to watch this show. It is a european spanish show, but it’s nothing subtitles cant fix. The 4th season just came out so it is kind of disappointing, but the the first three seasons are worth it. I would definitely rate it for ages 15 and up because of the sex. But there are lots of great messages that develop in the show.

This title has:

Great messages

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
