A Lot or a Little?

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this series features people struggling with obsessive-compulsive disorders. The frequent scenes showing them engage in this behavior, or the wounds that occur as a result, may be disturbing to young and/or sensitive viewers. Limited information is offered about the cause and/or cure of these behaviors.
Is It Any Good?
The series takes a superficial look at some people's disturbing and dangerous obsessions that have the potential to mutilate their bodies and/or potentially kill them. It also features conversations with concerned friends and family members who mean well, but are unable to offer the support needed to curb their behavior.
Brief interviews and meetings with therapists reveal the importance of dealing with compulsive behaviors, but the series doesn't offer a lot of detail about the actual compulsions or what leads to them. As a result, the images of people engaging in these behaviors seem more voyeuristic than educational.
Did we miss something on diversity?
