The show is not suitable for any one because characters are not suited for the roles. This is a major backlash.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 16+


I believe that storyline is not engaging for the audience meaning boring to watch. Does not follow the old traditional and characters some don’t suit their roles.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
