A little much for tv-14

Was very interesting but there’s a lot of actual murders being filmed and it’s pretty graphic. Episode 4 on the Russian mafia shows lots of female nudity and prostitution. I turned it off after seeing this so not sure how the last episode ended up.

This title has:

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

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This compelling series spotlights some of the more notorious individuals whose alleged criminal activities have made finding them an international priority. Reinforcing this is the footage of brutal attacks, bloody, mutilated corpses, and interviews with witnesses and survivors of terrorist attacks. Meanwhile, the painstaking efforts to find them are evidenced by the detailed, and sometimes slow, conversations about what has been done. But most of the people profiled here aren't as well known in the United States, which makes their stories feel fresh to U.S. audiences. If you like real-life crime stories, World's Most Wanted is worth tuning into.
