For once, this site is accurate- this show is NOT for kids (-15). Why have I watched it? It is an AMAZING historical drama with truly entrancing characters (one of my favorite TV shows). All actors are simply believable and provoke emotion; from pure disgust for the bad characters, to grief when a loved character dies, etc. Very pornographic and violent (violence doesn't bother me though). The director could drastically cut back on sex scenes, full frontal nudity (in my opinion) is fine, it is only the showing of the human body. Sex and rape are toned down after a few episodes (luckily). Special effects are believable and well done. There is some drug use, much alcohol use, gore, bad language etc. If you have a mature kid then I think they can handle this show. (I know that most 14 year olds see worse on the internet and TV than this). Not as historically accurate as I had hoped, but it is still very good. Very refreshing from the drama and trash-TV you see. You can probably get an edited version without the sex and language.
