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.

The show turns into trash

Captivating season 1. Seasons 2 and 3 are full of heavy violence, tons and tons of swearing, sex scenes, drug use and addiction, and not really anything worth watching. Wish we would’ve turned it off.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

updated info

Other reviews did not consider the final season. I would say season 1 and maybe 2 are ok for 14-15 year olds but season 3 kicks up the violence, sex and language. Tons of G-D as well as F bombs. Sex is still infrequent but a couple pretty racy scenes. Violence is much more graphic. Sadly a lot of shows seem to follow this trend. A great season or 2 and then season 3 they push the envelope and unfortunately end up getting cancelled because it was never necessary to push the envelope. Good writing speaks for itself.

This title has:

Great messages
Too much violence
Too much swearing
