Great strong female leads, great acting, quality show

If your kids are already familiar and comfortable with violence in movies and TV shows (fighting with hands, weapons) then give them the opportunity to try this incredible show. The female role models are awesome, and it has fantastic acting, characters that defy stereotypes, great costume design for the fashion interested, and beautiful cinematography and sets for the artistic. This show is incredible and I wish I had been able to see female representation like this when I was a kid, it could have really helped me with confidence and seeing strong female characters. There are also interesting lessons taught via the plot about not trusting all groups or organizations outright, applying critical thought with organizations and individuals.

Best for mature and less sensitive 15 year olds

This show is really good, with amazing acting, and writing as well as an engaging plot. There is a lot of violence though, people get stabbed, sliced open, axed in the back, shot, run over by cars, choked/strangled, and much more, plus it doesn’t go light on the blood. One of the characters commits a lot of violent acts for pleasure and without any remorse or consequences (this character is a known psychopath and gets paid for her “work”). So if you know you can take the very realistic blood and gore than that is all to watch out for. There aren’t any explicit sex scenes except for one in one of the first episodes but other than that the farthest they get is references, jokes, and explanations.

This title has:

Too much violence
