Ok, I’m only 4 episodes in, so maybe it will get better. But def don’t recommend this show for teens. It’s TV-14 so thought it might be ok. Nope. Graphic sex scenes, lots of drug/use , discussion of sexual violence & pornography. Nothing of value...

Nothing positive, nothing to gain from over the top sexual show

Betrayal, pedophelic relations (with a 15 year old boy in the first episode), racism, a 17 year old's sex tape is recorded, drugs and that's just from the first 2 episodes. The show offers nothing for a family. It's unnecessarily crude and long without any redeeming characters.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This knotty, uneven series features what's now a common tale: a strong woman who is great at her job but manages to sabotage her own life every step of the way. Robyn, who was unable to control the events in her troubled family's past, commits herself to trying to control everyone else's life, and isn't afraid to lie, bribe, or engage in other behaviors to do it. It's billed as a dramatic comedy in the United Kingdom, but stateside viewers may not appreciate Flack's sometimes subtle, often abrasive humor. Meanwhile, it often feels as if it is trying too hard to insert Robyn's personal struggles within the conflicts created by her clients. Nonetheless, viewers who stick with it will find the attempts to "fix" each public relations disaster filled with some entertaining dramatic tension.
