Sex & Nudity

suggested MPAA film rating: R for Graphic Brutal Violence, Strong Sexuality, Graphic Nudity, Language and Drug Use


Most episodes contain strong sexual references and graphic nudity. For example, several episodes have scenes where several men are in a room with a number of naked or partially clothed women. They are prostitutes who are there the make the men happy and are at least topless and in some cases you see their pubic hair but nothing graphic.

Some of the episodes contain explicit sex scenes.

Some of the episodes show female pubic hair blocking anything graphic and graphically shows male penises.

Season 2 had an incestuous theme in it between a mother and son.

Violence & Gore

Fairly frequent, when it appears it is usually extremely graphic, in-your-face, and often disgusting. Things like gunshots to the head, throat slittings and scalpings, etc. Often shown in close-up.


Frequent use of the F-word, occasional use of the C-word, other mild language.

Alcohol is made and consumed frequently. Some references to hard drugs.

Nothing frightening.
