Very depressing and dark

Very well done, don’t listen to the other reviews. Content isn’t 18+ like I put, but i day 18+ because of the darkness and depressing subject of the show. This show has a lot of details that are easy to miss, and is not for someone who is expecting high drama/action. The show shows the realistic side of would being a government agent is like. The character is suicidal, and endured severe depression throughout the show. However the show has deep messages through its music and characters. I put 18+ because someone who already struggles with stress and depression or feelings of sadness should not watch this, and teenagers are most vulnerable to mixed sad feelings. It’s a very dark and depressing scene and makes you feel sad and upset throughout the show, but shows the realistic side of life. As of content, the most violence is a couple flash back scenes of a bullet going through an innocent maids head with blood coming out in almost slow motion. And the main character defends himself by stabbing a guy in the face multiple times killing him, and one other scene of the character strangling another character but nothing graphic. Violence I give 3/5. Lot of used of f***, female watches poem on tv showing nude of back of woman, scene is very short, then full frontal nudity of a man in a police station showing his Gentile’s and everything(non sexual context). Removing the very dark and depressing theme from my age rating id say for a mature 15 year old. However I doubt a 15 year old would like this show, context is too mature and deep for teens to enjoy and understand. Highly recommend but not for everyone.

Disjointed

Too hard to follow, way too obscure . The main character sings folk/country in every episode. The singing was enough to drive any viewer away. Watched one season, I kept thinking it would get better. It didn’t!

Patriot is a smart, masterfully-constructed series

Though the humor is dark, the plotline is engaging and the characters well-cast. Highly recommend this series!

Really excellent off beat humor but not for everyone, also sexual content

The review fails to mention that there is sexual content in the final episode. At 36:10 (in episode 10 of season 1) a character is briefly seen watching pornography. Some brief rear female nudity is seen. Later on in that same episode a character provides a distraction by walking into the police station completely naked. Full frontal male nudity is seen and lasts about 30 seconds starting at 49:26. An extremely high quality show. Extremely funny if it's your stile of humor. Not actually that dark or violent after the first episode.

Too much swearing
