A roaring success and alright for 15+ (sex scene is present)

Although there was only one sex scene showing bare breasts for only a short period, and many amounts of scenes that include violence, drugs, human trafficking and much more.

The reason why I review this as 15+ is because it doesn’t matter what I think, it’s how mature your child is. But known there is sex and violence, it teaches you a lot. Sometimes forcing these types of concepts in kids heads can stop them from doing illegal activities in the future.

Police in this show are from the 1970’s and it’s sequel Ashes to Ashes is set in 1980’s and are known for beating up suspects of a crime.

Post autopsy’s are shown.

But really you should watch it before your child does.

Rating says no sex, but IMDB parents guide says there is

Rating says no sex, but IMDB parents guide says there is. From that site:
In S1E4 a brief shot of a woman handcuffing a man to a bed and having sex with him is shown. Her bare breasts are visible for a couple of seconds. In another scene a woman describes a threat by two men to rape and then murder her.

In S1E8, there is discussion of the production of pornographic films and three brief, rather indistinct shots of some of these pornos are shown, including a brief shot of bare breasts, and a shot of a naked man above a naked woman. No genitalia can be clearly seen.

Good but not for kids

We are watching the first season and it's very good but not at all for kids. Not only dark and gritty, plenty of violence and language and at least one sex scene.
