Parents Need to Know
Parents needs to know that Obliterated glorifies drug use and binge drinking for comedic purposes. Women are shown having sex while under the influence and some sex scenes are explicit, involving complete nudity and naked buttocks (but no other sensitive body parts). Other scenes not involving sex include naked breasts and full-frontal male nudity. People are beaten, stabbed, and shot in graphic and fast-moving fight scenes. The series also includes frequent profanity, including "f--k."
Is It Any Good?
Mission Impossible meets The Hangover in this unique action comedy that's fast-paced and consistently entertaining. Obliterated is a high-octane ride, with an adrenaline-pumping soundtrack, that features a rowdy crew of likable characters. Reminiscent of action films from the late 1980s and early '90s -- with the notable exception of both women and men of various ethnicities being portrayed as strong, intelligent, and competent -- the series delivers adult audiences mindless entertainment at a very high production level.
