Sex & Nudity


Some sex scenes occur in most episodes, noises can be heard and thrusting is very obvious.

"Fifteen Million Merits" shows porn on screens. In at least one shot a woman's breast is visible, and in another a man and woman are shown having sex although no genitalia are visible. The porn scenes flash by quickly, so it is hard to see many details. Women are also shown seductively sucking on fingers.

'Be right back' has two sex scenes.

One of the episodes *SPOILER* handles some Mature sexual themes, as the British prime minister is forced to preform sexual intercourse with a live animal on live national television. Bestiality is not glorified in this episode, but instead the characters seem distressed by the matter and the prime minister is several times advised against preforming it. The indecent act is not shown in detail, although you do see a few shots of the PM's face during the act.

Violence & Gore

6/10 *Minor SPOILERS*

One scene shows a drunken character threatening and punching is wife's ex- boyfriend, the scene is very brief.

A woman is shot in the leg. Multiple large wounds are shown.

A person has their finger cut off (not shown in detail). The finger is then sent in a box to someone else.

A body is briefly shown hanging from the ceiling

A woman and two others are shown being chased by a masked man with a shotgun, one of them is shot but no blood is seen.

Later in the same episode two women are chased through the woods when they are captured and taken to what appears to be an execution site with bodies strung up around trees, one escapes and shoots the man holding them, again no blood is shown.

A man jabs himself in the hand with a piece of glass, created a small wound. Later the same man holds the piece of glass up to his neck and threatens to kill himself.



The word "F*ck" is used somewhat frequently in the majority of episodes, with only a few or none in others.

Other milder terms are used such as "sh*t" are used

5/10 *very minor spoilers*

Some alcohol use and smoking

A character is told to drink a fluid called "compliance", the actual effects are not shown but it is suggested it has some mind-control qualities similar to modern day Psychedelics or narcotics


Most episodes handle quite mature themes, with characters frequently scene under distress or forced into undesirable situations.

Each episode is an imagining/recreation of what is wrong with this world and satirical re-imaginations of what we are like as people. The episodes often play with the mind and make us think about our lives, the episodes could be set in the future, past present or in an alternate reality. Because of this it is advised that if viewing with young children you check the theme of the program first as content can change dramatically because of the episodes each having individual story lines.
