Mis-rated - Not What I Expected from a TV-14 Rated Show

I couldn’t make it through the first five minutes watching the first episode while sitting next to my teenage daughter. Barely one minute into the episode and the f-bomb is dropped. Cut to next scene - two women kissing on a couch. That, followed by stereotypical Irish gangster dude who can’t get through a sentence without saying f-ing every third word. I don’t see how it got a TV-14 rating. It might be a good show, but I (a dad) am not going to watch it with my teenage daughter.

Fine Sci Fi, Pointless Language

The show seems like a well designed “Black Mirror” analogue, only I struggle with the non stop swearing. I understand that dropping the F Bomb can be used as a tool to illicit emotional reactions in viewers, but the first episode was ridiculous. Figuratively every fifth word was f***. The use of course language can contribute to an emotional moment but this episode was so vomitous with foul language that it distracts from the plot and ruins the episode.
