reviews are over-exaggerating!

the show was based in the 1800s so what did y’all expect of course it’s going to be a lot of sex and swearing. but other than that that this show is really great but yeah since there is a lot of swearing and sex it should be 13+ but not what the other reviews say 18 plus no i think 13+ you can’t keep hiding stuff from young teens as if they aren’t going to experience it soon.
