Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Fascinating but horrifying

This is definitely and adults only show and I struggled getting some of the really graphic images out of my mind. Complete nudity in one episode, vivid sex scene in another...without nudity, but leaving little to the imagination. The story line sucked me in and I agree the acting is good, but it is impossible to un-see the image of a woman hacking her mother open and rummaging inside her chest cavity.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
age 15+

First-rate psychological drama

For anyone who likes whodunnits, this is an adrenaline rush. Yes, there’s sex, nudity, swearing and violence, but it’s realistic and not really gratuitous unless you subscribe to prudishness. It’s mostly great acting and a thrilling plot.
