Nudity

They have now begun to have nudity on the show...showing both men and women fully nude from the back and women from the side. Please let your readers know this.

Ok for 14+

This show definitely has violence in it but nothing too bloody. There is a little bit of swearing (c--k, p---y, s--t) but its rare. Sexual content is quite strong throughout the show and nudity is limited to butts and full rear nudity.

Fabulous program, but mostly for adults and mature teens

One of the best new programs on television, but not really suitable for young children or immature teens. Lots of life lessons and history to be learned from this drama, to be sure.
