Excessive swearing and nudity, looking past that, a fab show

So this is definitely not one to watch with young ones. It has graphic sex scenes, violence that can get graphic and bloody at times and a bit too much swearing imo. All the same this show (up to the episode 'the hanging' that I am currently up to) is very good indeed. It has got me captivated. Brilliant characters with interesting grey morality at times but are lovable all the same. Brilliant well timed comedic moments. Tear jerking scenes. Genuinely shocking moments. This show has it all. Go watch the Nevers.

If you like perverted sex clubs...

Why this is supposed to be liberating for women is beyond me, when female nudity and a pervy sex club are main themes! Taking your clothes off isn’t female empowerment, it’s not clever, isn’t entertaining and spoils viewing for families, not to mention gore etc.
