I honestly don’t know why this show is rated MA. It is not a terribly bad show. Though your child has to be mature enough to watch such show. I thought it was incredibly educational and the acting is wonderful. Totally recommend if you are into documentary type acting.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
