Contains some strong sex scenes and sexual references, particularly in the first two seasons of the show. Sex scenes usually contain partial and/or rear nudity, and female characters are heard moaning ecstatically.

Also contains infrequent mild nudity in a non-sexual context.

Contains infrequent moderate violence. In one particularly gruesome scene, a character's arm is chopped off. There is no emphasis on sustained pain or injury.

Also contains infrequent scenes of characters being shot or threatened.

Contains infrequent use of strong coarse language (such as "fuck" and its variants).

Also contains infrequent use of mild coarse language (such as "shit", 'bitch", "pissed off" etc.).

Scenes of cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption are infrequent throughout the series and are not portrayed in a glamorised fashion.

Some adult themes may be concerning for some viewers, such as an ongoing storyline in which a religious community's "prophet" weds a teenage girl. The fourth season includes a storyline in which a doctor practices eugenics by artificially impregnating his victims with sperm from their siblings (resulting in offspring being the products of incest). This particular storyline is handled with restraint and young viewers will be unlikely to comprehend the storyline.

Also includes themes of miscarriage, birth control, death, suicide, conversion therapy, exile on religious grounds, intimate relationships between adults and adolescents, religious oppression and retribution.
