age 16+


Sex scenes , intimate kissing , strip club scenes/flashbacks cleavage & mild nudity from a teenage girl getting out of the shower

This title has:

Too much sex
age 18+


Highly religious. Sci-fy. Fiction. Different. It's like Buffy The Vampire Slayer and similar shows. Hope to see it again on Netflix/adult programs only because the religious tones may offend. So don't watch it if you don't like it because its not your cup of tea.
