Bad writer

Why would they show something like rape and violent content on a show that was so good, the writer should be fired.

Too much violence

Potentially a very interesting story line. Sadly enough, too much violence and evil attitudes. Getting worse and worse. Unfortunately the result is a disgusting product, not supporting any good goal.
