Suggested MPAA Rating: PG-13 for unsettling thematic material involving some violent imagery and drug content, and for a brief mature sexual situation.

A girl catches another girl implicitly masturbating, the act isn't actually scene at all, it is rather implied by the other girl. A few people kiss.

A man looks lustfully at a woman, sitting in his office, who is crossing and uncrossing her legs (brief).

Bits of blood hit a person's face after someone unwillingly shoots himself offscreen.

A dead woman is seen face-down with a pool of blood around her head for a few seconds.

A few uses of Shit, Hell, and Damn.

A man claims to be God.

There's a high-tech drug many people implicitly take. Some infrequent smoking and drinking.

Two men are briefly shown yelling in pain from an unseen cause. A seemingly possessed and monstrous-looking girl chases two males, briefly attacking one offscreen. Her face is shown again as she opens her mouth in stop-motion.

The series is not overly violent and it has little blood for the most part, but certain scenes can be eerie or unsettling.
