Pornographic elements!

I am posting this to warn people of legitimate R18/pornographic elements in the series: for 1 whole second, there is a picture of an erect penis. second part, the guy shows a pornographic drawing depicting an object inserted into a womans vagina(or rectum idk) by a creature (BDSM-esque). You get a pretty good view of it for some seconds, twice. It is not censored at all. I am very surprised this was even allowed to be passed where any minor could see stuff like this.

Unexpected graphic male nudity

Episode 4 or 5 when she starts meeting people online, there is a completely unnecessary image of a full erection in plain view. Complete pornographic image. As someone that was watching the show with my daughter I am mortified. Completely unnecessary and had no business being in the show.

Good show for older teens and adults

It is an interesting case and the show is portrayed well, but the masturbatory scenes that occurred in the past episode and what we are to expect in future episodes (the male nudity) may not be suitable for younger teens depending on the parent. Other than that, again it is all well produced show.

Good for more mature kids!

I’d say it depends on the parent. Frequent mild language such as sh-t, h-ll, and d-mn is used, with stronger language once in a while. Not much sexual content, maybe some provocative clothing occasionally, or clothing that shows cleavage, non-sexualized. All of the drug usage in the show with the exception of one or two scenes (one short scene with marijuana, a few more with the older characters smoking cigarettes) is solely medication for Gypsy’s (faked) illnesses. May be frightening or unsettling for viewers 13 and under, but overall great show.
