WAY TOO MUCH BRUTAL VIOLENCE & NUDITY

Another great drama that is let down by uneccessary graphic violence and mysoginy. It is great acting and the costumes are stunning, but it has become too predictable.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
