The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

TV-MA for pervasive strong language and brief drug use

No sex or nudity, but mild sexual dialogue (i.e. some talk about infidelity, casual sex).

Season one, episode three: ("112th Congress"): a shirtless man is seen getting out of a bed that a woman in a bikini is lying in. It's implied that they either are about to have or did have sex, but there's nothing explicit in this scene.

Violence & Gore

Aside from arguing and scenes of real-life conflicts on the news, there's no violence in this show.


Strong language used throughout.

Constant casual uses of the word "fuck."

Infrequent uses of stronger profanities such as "goddamn" and "shit", as well as infrequent uses of insults such as "dick," "asshole," "pussy," etc.

People are insulted and called names quite often by the main character, who has a very bad temper.

Characters drink alcohol and there is some marijuana usage.

None. However, some scenes can be quite emotional, as most of the news segments portrayed in the show are about real historical events (like the Deepwater Horizon oil spill or the Tucson shooting).

Recommended for 15 and up, for strong language.
