The book is better

A lot of swearing about every swear word you can think of, the Lords name in vain is used g**d***, the book that was written took place before 9/11 which is much better, mainly turned this off due to the profanity and the use of the Lords name in vain

This title has:

Too much swearing

The CommonSenseMedia Review is for Episode One

This is an interesting and well-acted show for adults, but parents and others who are looking for clean entertainment for themselves or their families should know the review here appears to only concern the first episode. There are additional sex scenes, and by the fourth episode, there is a graphic sex scene with female frontal nudity. I imagine there will be more of this as the show unfolds. Language is extreme throughout the series.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
