Did we miss something on diversity?

Much needed updated review

I love this show but, it is not for young kids. There is a good amount of swearing and other obscenities in just the first episode. Common Sense currently has nothing under Sex but, in the first episode we see a man’s computer screen opened up to porn and later in the episode a man is cheating on his wife and we see him bend a coworker over a table at work. I don’t remember much else about this show yet but, yea, that’s there.

Inaccurate review

Movies get an R rating for more than one F bomb. The pilot was loaded with them, though the review didn't mention any. And sex scenes are not applicable? There was a guy banging a woman in a bank vault. Definitely applicable. Don't get me wrong. The show is fun for adults, but it's definitely not for kids or teens.
