A lot of violence but with an interesting plot

It has some messed up moments, but overall it's a good show. There's a lot of violence and killing, so it's definetly not for kids. I would recommend watching the first episode on your own before, so as to get the general tone. The show does deal with a flu pandemic and (spoiler alert) some evil doctor trying to vaccinate people with an altered vaccine. So, don't watch it if you think it could affect your or your child's perception of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Too much violence
age 18+
The show has loads of graphic senseless violence, including killing children. Also the acting and writing are lousy. Think of “Preacher” without the clever plot and interesting characters.
