Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Great plot, VERY inappropriate

I really enjoyed this show, it had a great plot. However, they use the f-bomb every other word and have VERY explicit sex scenes. There are scenes where only the pubic area is covered because of their position. It gets pretty bad. Little to no violence. Basically no good role models and one character is constantly high on something. Not for children.

This title has:

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

More sex than main review suggests

CSM clearly reviewed the Syfy version not the version available on DVD and I assume Netflix. This series is loaded with sex scenes and uncensored nudity. Obviously families have different tolerances to such things but the "sex gauge" on the review should be 4 dots, not 2, perhaps even 5 so people know what they're getting into. The DVD box itself gives the impression this is basically a variant of Buffy. In some respects it is, if Buffy were crossbred with Skins. If you're OK with your kids watching the sexually explicit Skins (UK version) then have at 'er.

Too much sex
