Not for kids

Seeing Marvel, we thought it might be a good show for our kids. About 15-20 min in, we shut it off and my kids agreed that it was for older teenagers. It could’ve been so much better without the trashy scenes. Within the first half, you see sane-sex kissing at a party with drugs, 2 boys taking a drugged girl upstairs, terrible parent behaviors and language. Definitely an adult show. My fault for not reading the reviews first.

This title has:

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

It’s a really good serie. I don’t understand why there are just 4 episodes.... i want to see the rest off the serie but can’t find it on the internet
