I wouldn't recommend it, but If you wanna watch it you can.

There's a thousand reasons why i don't recommend this series for younger audiences, but I'll only be listing a few. First off, there's too much violence and gun usage. Now, This isn't much of a problem but for those under the adult age it might be. Second off, there are waaaayyy too many sexual themes. I just can't even with that. Lasty, the n word is said way too much, around a total of 70-ish times per episode, and no I'm not being dramatic. If you want to watch this series, I recommend that you watch it if you're not sensitive or if you're 18 or older.
