Amazon Gives Improper Rating

I am watching this series after having watched the US version which I loved. I almost suggested to my 13 daughter that we watch this series together, and I am so thankful I didn’t. The rating of 13+ on Amazon Prime and IMDB is WAY off the mark. In the intimate scenes, women are clothed and they show backside male nudity. The physicality is realistic which is why this show is not appropriate for 13 plus. It is maybe 16 plus if you have a well balanced, healthy adolescent.

Older teens and adults only

I rated this low cause this genre is not for me. However, my 14 yr old wants to watch it and it is a little too much. This is a show for adults and should not be marketed to young teens. 18 and up.
