Lots of episodes (mostly episodes from the first 4 seasons) contain nudity and sexual themes not recommended for anyone under 18. (9/10)

LOTS of violence, but somewhat low on blood and gore. (8/10)

Contains quite a bit of bad language such as: f***, s***, a**, etc. (7.5/10)

Many characters drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes, and there is some drug use too. (7/10)

Many of the episodes have "twist" endings, similar to other anthology series such as Tales From The Crypt. There are also a lot of intense scenes throughout the series. Nothing too frightening, though. (7.5/10)
