This show is absolutely brilliant! The acting is good, The dialouge is good, The action sequences are what makes me love the show the most. This show has a lot of violence. Violence is one of the most common things in this show. Theres throat slitting, People shot point blank in the head, (People are just shot all over the place in general). In the 1st season Lily's husband is being attacked by a Native American, He dies eventually, Lily has to kill the Indian before he kills her. She shoves an arrow in his throat. It shows it in graphic detail. This is one of the most violent TV-14 shows out there. A man also cuts off another man's head. (This is not shown off camera.) And another guy is shot through the mouth. The language is as bad as a TV-14 show can get. S--t, Hell, Damn, Whore, and the "N" word. They don't say F--k though. The sex isn't to bad. It shows bare backsides. No butts are shown though. You do see them hump each other. And you also hear the bed creak when they do it. There aren't any very good role models. I think Elam might be but not sure. I went into a lot of detail doing this review. Hope it helps you decide wether your kid should watch this or not.
