Sex & Nudity

  • Frontal nudity not related to nude models. Nude boy in bath with knife being held to his throat before being murdered. Homosexual themes as well as heterosexual scenes. Beastiality (a pig).
  • Leonardo and his peers did draw/sculpt unclothed subjects; artwork of such is seen from time to time and sometimes models posing for the same are seen nude (mostly distant, obscured by foreground, and very brief).
  • Occasional brothel/bathing scenes: occasional brief glimpses of partial nudity (dimly lit, not emphasized).

Violence & Gore

  • I turned it off after a few episodes. The torture scenes, violence and gore are not fleeting and is thrown in your face. It overshadows the story.
  • Violence and bloodshed in the show, including decapitations, stabbings, and mass killings, but not overly gorey or dwelled upon.


  • The most prominent curse word is sh*t. Damn, hell, God, and Jesus are all used regularly. There are some uses of f*ck. B*tch is occasionally said. And at least one use of c*nt in season 1.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Leonardo will occasionally smoke his pipe to calm down his nerves and 'muddy his brain so he won't eviscerate himself'.
  • Occasional wine drinking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

Violence & Gore

  • Torture, gore, violence. If the directors and producers had spent more on character development and less time on mostly male frontal nudity, violence, alternative sexual encounters (including animals) offensive language and anti-Christian infusions with characters, it might have made an interesting show. Too much in-your-face trash to cover up poor script writing. I certainly wouldn't want my children to think that adults are entertained by this.
