Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Definitely not for kids

All three scenarios have to do with extramarital affairs and there are sex scenes (no nudity), one involving a threesome. You do see bare butts, both male and female in other scenes. Definitely enough F-bombs to keep it from being child appropriate.

This was an awesome series that I watched with my partner and children aged 9,11,14,15 none of my children whom are usually quite sensitive and often get nightmares over the littlest thing had any problem with this tv show however there were the occasional inappropriate seen such as sex or swearing but we just fast forwarded those bits on and I certainly think that the ratio is much strong with the strong independent woman than the occasional inappropriate Seen I would give this series a ten out of ten and hope that other families watch this with there children I do not think that common senses review was at all fair but that is all generated where as this isn’t
