This Is Wicked! Definitely 15+

The TV Show contains frequent strong language, violence, nudity and soft drug use. Throughout the whole series 12 uses of the F-word, one use of the middle finger and occasional uses of the S-word and the D-word. Some episodes can include scenes with strong violence like a man being stabbed and falling onto a car bleeding, a wife killing her own husband with a bowl made of glass and a drug dealer being brutally shot in the chest. There is a sex scene where a woman strips into her bikini and has sex with a man on bed, you don't see it but you hear the noises while two men are watching it on tape and also we see a man's bum. In one episode, we meet a alcoholic who smokes and takes cocaine. We only see the cocaine being spilt on the table. But this is one of the funniest and intense shows I've seen.

Brilliant comedy, not for kids

'The Wrong Mans' is a superbly written espionage-comedy with a stellar cast, and brilliant story line. However, amidst this intricately woven plot lies very strong language (one episode has the duo pretending to be racists to get out of a sticky situation, some racial slurs do ensue), and intense sequences of violence. On the whole, sex is less of a focus here than in most modern programs (BBC or otherwise), however innuendo is a strong theme throughout the series (*spoiler alert* one scene included a male watching pornography, whose mother later comments that "all the girls in those videos were abused"). Additionally, in the episode "Inside Mans", *spoiler alert* one of the guys becomes the sexual target of an elderly Russian man, whose entire idea of sex has a perverse flavor (we see many of his twisted artwork on the walls of his house during an 'orgy-themed' party). This sub-plot becomes a recurring theme throughout the episode, as well as the following episode. However, the the sexual content throughout the series is limited to this episode, as the following episodes (with the exception of 'Wanted Mans') have almost no sexual content whatsoever. Young children more than likely won't be able to appreciate the witty dialogue, and curious teens should be careful (or skip altogether) the episodes containing the aforementioned sexuality.
