friend recommended, shit show

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 18+
Honestly one of the best shows I have seen to date. The show makes you question you view of the world, and even your own actions. Its a little slow, and it took me some work to get friends into the show, but now they love it just as much!
