Meant for very mature teens.

It has nudity in almost every episode, like in episode three where it has a sex scene in the very begining of the episode, and in episode five where you see a topless woman.

Complex emotional drama, unexpected nudity

I am really, really enjoying this show. The characters have depth, the pacing is well done, they're exploring complex personal issues, and aren't using a cookie-cutter way of telling stories. It's very engaging. It's important to note there's a number of scenes with upper female nudity in addition to sex scenes a few episodes the first season that I was not expecting due to the main show review. I really wish they weren't present because they're completely unnecessary for the story. They start around episode 3 if I recall. That episode's opening scene is a sex scene with nudity. Additionally, there are scenes depicting drug use some parents may not want to be showing their kids. A non-graphic but very emotional suicide is also depicted.
