Did we miss something on diversity?

I believe it's one of the best TV series

I absolutely loved the series, it's a great screen adaptation of a wonderful book. There is nothing not to like about the series, writing is excellent, acting is top notch, amazing music, costumes and special effects. And the show itself is a hymn to humanity. My 10 year old daughter enjoyed it almost as much as I did, and I liked her questions and comments, it was not just entertaining, but it made her think and ponder. Yes, there is some swearing and a hint to sex, but I was OK with it. So was she.

Amazing show, has some strong language

This is a phenomenal show that is sure to be enjoyable for a wide age range. There are a couple violent/dark scenes but no blood or gore at all. There's one sex scene but very brief and no nudity. There is reference to prostitution and pornography. Language is infrequent but fairly strong, few "shit"s and 3 instances of (*whispers*) the fuck word. Overall an excellent, quirky show with great acting, interesting storyline, and hilarious scenes. Younger kids, teens and adults will enjoy.
