Gripping, but a bit creepy.

This is a super good show and I really enjoyed watching it. It has an amazing plot with alot of twists. Violence- The only thing that realy concerned me throughout the episodes I have watched so far was the fact that at the end of episode 2 it shows a woman watching tv, then there is a shadow behind her, then it flicks back to the tv screen and suddenly there is a gunshot and blood splatters onto the tv screen. After that in episode 3 the main character is investigating what happened to her, and it shows her face with blood all over it as they zip up the bag her dead body is in. That part was a bit creepy. Sex- Again the only concerning thing for me in the episodes I watched, was a scene in one of the episodes (I don't remember which one) is a wife and her husband are doing math together and the husband cracks something smart and the wife starts saying "sexy math" and the go into the kitchen and start taking off their shirts and say "Lets go upstairs and do some sexy math together" Apart from these things I loved the show and thought it was amazing.
