Thrilling but informative show some nudity but for good reasons

It’s an excellent show, but the only things u should worry about is the violence in the first episode and the sex in the 3rd episode. Other than that its good, thrilling and interesting

Things not discussed

First off nudity... They say there is none, but there is a scene where the doc is showing how to do a lobotomy. Female who is a cadaver, but still a real person, is topless on the table. Closeup of her breasts, scene lasts a few minutes with her breasts visible most of the time. Granted it's not sexual, but if you worry about your teenage boys or girls seeing breasts, then episode 2 is one to avoid. Other than that, pretty descriptive sexual language, and a scene where a nurse is having sex with someone other than her husband.

ages 15 and up.

this show is brilliant ! it is really well thought through, not to mention a great cast. However, it is a very mature show, there are sexual refrences, murder scenes, alcoholism, etc. while these scenes are not very graphic they are still pretty brutal. i would advise parents to watch this show before allowing their child to watch it.

Not what it seems

Ratched is a great tv show for people who are of age. The are a couple sex scenes with a bare butt shown. There are MANY people who are either smoking or drinking. There are also many violently cringeworthy scenes.

Great Show!!!

Great Show for teens! I don’t know why Netflix rated this show TV-MA there was a little bit of sex in it but it was graphic. The only thing TV-MA about this show is the first scene in episode one. Other that that it’s mostly medical violence! No different than what’s in Grey’s Anatomy! But the show is good and Sarah Paulson is an amazing actress. Very talented! Not to bad on language and definitely not much drinking! 9/10 show would recommend to anyone who likes crime tv shows or movies!
