good, but common sense media left out a lot of violence

this show is so amazing, i’ve been binging it and there are so many good twists! but the only thing is that this has a lot of violence that was not brought up in this review, such as people being shot in the face, and animal cruelty. parents/kids should know this because if your child and/or you get triggered by violence and gore, i would suggest not watching this.

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (5 ):

On the surface, Moritz' story has all the beats of a typical crime show (there are stark similarities to Breaking Bad, for example), albeit one taking place in high school. But How to Sell Drugs Online (Fast) slyly uses the story as a way into other, more complex topics, like how online companies exploit and profit from users' personal information. Even though Moritz is ostensibly motivated by a break-up (a la Zuckerberg in The Social Network), the show is careful not to make stereotypes out of his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend. Similar thoughtfulness makes its way into most aspects of the show, lifting it from pure entertainment into something more complex and insightful.
