Almost porn

The first 2 seasons were pretty good, but by season 3, topless women became very frequent, as were lots of sex scenes that were very convincing. Lots of f-bombs as well. Why did the writers feel a need to include these kind of scenes? There was even basically an orgy with topless women everywhere. Also, the characters by season 3 were more shallow, less developed. What I enjoyed most about the first 2 seasons were how much the characters were connected in spite of their flaws and scarred background. Yuck, what happened??
