Be Cautious

This show is loaded with violence, gore, fear, psychological trauma, sex, swearing, crime, murder, accidental death, animal killing, and drugs. It is a slow unfolding of what happened to a high school soccer team after their plane crashed 25 years ago in the wilderness mixed with the adult characters in present day. There are many questions and fewer answers reminiscent of the show Lost.

This title has:

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