Interesting but with some disturbing moments

A few disturbing scenes of sexual violence...most graphic moments are offscreen. 1st episode has drawing of nude woman shown briefly.

Trauma trigger: Dialog and some scenes reference necrophilia and rape

I believe this show is mis-rated at TV-14. I think it's actually a very good show, but the there are some intense scenes dealing with rape or necrophilia that shouldn't be viewed by anyone that isn't old enough to deal with the intensity associated with sexual assault depiction. There are a few scenes that would definitely be trauma triggers for anyone that has been a victim of sexual assault. Again, it's actually great story-telling and there are a lot of great things about the show, but it should be viewed by a mature mind who can deal with violence that is a little too-close-to-real sometimes.
