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.

age 18+

A hard "R" TV show. not for kids, and some adults.

The CSM review is incorrect. I watched on hulu. There’s sex, violence, language, and some dialog that is straight from a porn movie (seriously). Too bad, the acting, writing, and production value are great. Garbage is not necessary to make great shows.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 18+

Totally inappropriate for children

...and for this adult too. Lots of nudity and sex, and it's almost all unnecessary and adds nothing to the story. If this was a movie, it would be X-rated, and with good reason. Moreover, one of the premises of the show is not one that I can approve of. A killer-for-hire who's really at his core a sensitive, loving guy with a heart of gold? Um, no. The man is a murderer. He kills people who did nothing to him. And your father calling you a killer is not a valid reason to go and become one. Although maybe it would be a good topic for discussion with the kids. In addition to the topic of how lousy choices lead to worse choices and can affect those you love and not just yourself. It's a pity because the storyline itself is gripping and the acting is excellent. Nevertheless, not a show I would watch with my kids...or with my parents either, for that matter.
