My 10 year old daughter loves Dolly Parton and was excited to watch this show. I can’t speak for the whole series, but we had to turn off the first episode, Jolene, after 12 minutes. At least half a dozen terms for breasts, plenty of shots of a character’s cleavage, and someone propositioning another character for sex in a bar bathroom was too much for us.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
