Fabulous series however gory and disturbing

This show is well written, well acted, and twisty. The blood and gore stay to a minimum until the last two episodes when there is constant flipping back and forth between being fine and then blood everywhere and graphic injuries. I loved the concept, but the blood and gore in the last two episodes left a bad taste in my mouth about the series as a whole. I am not a super squeamish person, and it was too much for me.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
