Too much too soon

Great crime show. Good characters and writing. Love plot and characters that unravel and flip-flop between good and bad and keep you guessing. A high quality production value 6 episode Law and Order, but my 14 year old who says snuggling is for babies crawled into my bed last night because of a surprise twist that turned out too be too upsetting and freaky. And this is a tough kid (they're not watching Snuff films at 5yrs old like Joey P.'s kid - really Joey? your ratings seem a little too relaxed son) but the violence while not a lot is image intense and impactful. Your kids will be exposed to murder, adultery, lying, incarceration, class manipulation & degradation - hmmm maybe I shouldn't be watching it, but I'm hooked.

Fun miniseries

The show is great. There are some inappropriate scenes but it is just nudity and it is infrequent
