Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • For several episodes, psy-ops are used and may be disturbing to some as it is a type of torture. Flashing lights and disturbing loud noises that include war and rabbits being slaughtered.
  • The final episode includes a prolonged and intense scene in which unarmed people, including women and children, are attacked by chemical weapons and die in a fire. In one scene, a room full of almost a dozen children are essentially gassed to death, many people panicking while the building burns down, often holding children. Many people die in a panic.
  • A woman is killed by a sniper while holding a baby, the baby cries on the floor and the woman's body is surrounded by blood.
