A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series presents a sensational overview of violent crimes committed by women.
Positive Role Models
The inmates have all been convicted of terrible crimes. Some are remorseful, others are less so.
Violence & Scariness
Includes some very detailed discussions about violent criminal acts, including beatings, murder, and cannibalism. Crime scene images of bloody objects are occasionally visible. Recreations of events are blurry and do not show the most violent parts of the crimes being committed, but are still disturbing. Domestic violence is also discussed. Childhood sexual abuse is discussed as a potential reason for some inmates criminal behaviors.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that in this docuseries inmates offer candid and detailed accounts of the violent crimes that landed them in prison. Drug/alcohol addiction, sexual abuse, and horrific murders are discussed. Blurry recreations of criminal acts don't offer a lot of detail, but are intense enough to be disturbing. The language is occasionally strong ("pissed", curses like "f--k" bleeped), and drinking (beer; hard liquor) is sometimes visible.
Is It Any Good?
The docuseries explores the criminal minds of these women by allowing them to tell their stories from their point of view. It also highlights many of the bad choices they made throughout their lives that led them to prison.
Thanks to the endless (and graphic) accounts of the violent crimes they committed, the series is more sensational than informative. But folks who like this sort of thing may find it interesting.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
