Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Practically porn

Filled with nudity and sex scenes from episode one and forward. Not safe for kids

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 18+

MA rated for a reason

Well....this is a dark and interesting take on what cult religions can be like, it has potential to be intriguing. However, I was disappointed that there was a nude scene in the first episode...not appropriate for teens and not even comfortable with husband watching it. A woman approaches a man, not married, and disrobes and you see her breasts for a good, probably 30 second scene, the context is sexual...not sure on exact time but it was plenty long, not a quick flash. If this is in the first episode, what is to follow? Porn has become mainstream. Obviously with a MA rating to be somewhat expected. Parents be aware.
