Woah! A bit mature

I am pretty liberal parent and so watched this with my younger teens. While the core story and episodes are fine there are many graphic images related to teenage sex including teenage sex, oral sex etc. The girls talk about sex and fight far more than they talk about survival, and swear in most sentences, which is a bit over the top. I wished the filmmakers had toned it down just a bit in the name of executing an otherwise decent teenage drama. It is way more explicit than the summary written on common sense

Proceed With Extreme Caution!

Not for teens as some would suggest. This show has a disturbing amount of profanity and shows someone of faith swearing (JFC) and not holding to her belief system. There is a lot of feminist, anti-patriarchy content (men are responsible for the ills of the world essentially). There is also drug use and sexual content. Now, there are some who find this okay, but if you are going here for a review, you probably need to know all of this, so you can make an informed decision.
