Truly amazing!

What can I say? This show is amazing. You’ve definitely heard all about it, so I won’t talk about for too long. But one thing, it’s completely inappropriate, so not for kids.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

If it's not broken

Season 1 is great for the before bedtime routine. Season 2 looses this. The game show just isn't relaxing.
