Too much

Too much violence and gore, too much language, and definitely too much sex…pornographic and completely unnecessary. We stopped watching after 3rd episode.

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
age 18+


We started watching Season 1 normally...and then all of a sudden they show extreme nude scenes! Watching it with our whole family with a son who's 12 years old was just terrorizing. It was not even related to the story plot...And it was completely unnecessary. Moreover, I'm accepting my mistake of not checking the reviews and ratings. I am super disappointed and I'm not even gonna watch it again. Netflix...I didn't expect this at all. Y'all could have done better

This title has:

Too much sex
