So so good - NOT as sexual as everyone says

I love this show so much - it has a black woman as the main character and a lot of diversity (homosexuality, different races) and it actually shows us what it's like to be a black woman nowadays. It's so interesting, I've never seen anything like this. I don't know what it is, it's just absolutely addicting and interesting with an AMAZING cast. I admire them all. It's well written and has a different way to tell the story which is so unique and worked out very well. However it does have a lot of sexual references, jokes etc and sex is a key theme but they never show anything. No nudity, no sex scenes (oral sex is briefly shown though but it's covered). It can be a little rough at some point, because you get to see abusive unhealthy relationships and such things but that's a part of the story. So for me as a teenager it's so weird that adults actually consider this should be a TV-MA. It does not contain graphic sex scenes, nor graphic violence or language. So the TV-14 rating is just fine. The violence is not graphic. We see a little blood on screen but that's basically it. Highly recommend it.

I had to watch it first to see if it was ok, but when I really started to pay attention, I saw that it is not as sexual as people say, my son, Jeremy, has grown very attached to this show. if your still not sure, then watch the first few episodes with them hope i helped

Not appropriate for anyone under 18

This is a great show, however the amount of gratuitous sex makes it inappropriate for anyone under the age of 18. As an example, one of the characters uses sex as currency to get what he wants. The show seems increasingly about sex and and infidelity, and it would be difficult to say there are good role models.

It honestly depends if your child is mature enough

there isnt too many sex scenes i recomend this show to tweens and teen who enjoy crime and drama but younger can watch it with an adult

Downhill since Season 1

1st season was raw, something new. Great writing and acting. Then came Season 2, they had nothing left but to make everyone sleep with each other and kill people. Look these people are sickos, and at some point would pay for their crimes. No doubt Viola Davis carries this show, with help from Charlie Weber(Frank), Liza Weil(Bonnie), and Matt Mc Gorry(Asher). Lots of sex , and a lot of white bashing which I found unnecessary, sort of cheapen the show. Basically an expensive soap Opera One way you can tell if you really like a show is, would you ever watch it again or buy the series = my answer NOT.
