Did we miss something on diversity?

The therapy helps Erica understand herself, people and the world she lives in. Her life was a mess, lucky her, she was able to make someone and life worth living. She saw the people around her incapable of doing wrong but after the therapy she saw them as human beings with flesh and blood. She finally understands that life is not black and white. It fun, sad, emotional and great series. I loved it

Should be rated MA. There is no way this is PG... Multiple sex scenes, treated lightly, drinking and drunkenness and not that great of a storyline. I would never let my son watch this.
