Sex & Nudity

  • In episode 1. The very opening shows a dream sequence where a woman is wearing a bikini type outfit. Later on a husband and wife are in bed, the husband pleasures his wife with his hand (offscreen) moaning and some dirty talk it last for about ten seconds. Later our main character walks in on a man giving another man oral in the alley. It is brief, there is moaning for a second or two. It is quick and buttock nudity is shown. Very skippable scenes, no nudity is shown, except for the last reference.
  • Ep 2 a Nude man is being wiped down by women dressed like nuns. Male rear nudity is shown in a couple of shots.
  • Ep.3 Rear male nudity during sex scene
  • Ep4. Full frontal nudity of a person with breasts, a penis and testicles.
  • Ep. 5: most graphic so far. Opens with partial female nudity. Tic and Leto have passionate sex (full female minus nipples). Ruby and Leti shown in bubble baths (no nudity). There is a gay sex scene involving a regular character. Several male characters in drag. Hand seen entering man's rear.
  • Ep6 there is a scene where there are several non sexual graphic views of male genitalia on male corpses during a student class scene - 3 sex scenes which has full male rear nudity in 2, side nude view of a couple which isn't graphic and a couple of breast shots & one had inferred oral foreplay.
  • Ep.7: A Chorus Line of bare breasted women dance to entertain an audience of men and women in early 20th century Paris to fulfill the wish of a character who wants to "dance with Josephine Baker." Topless female dancers exit a stage & talk in a dressing room with bare breasts on full display in keeping with the time/setting. Scene is awkward at first, and not sexual. Partial female nudity in another scene where a woman wakes up naked due to entering a different "dimension."

Violence & Gore

  • In the beginning scene, soldiers are seen getting killed with blood spraying.
  • A man transforms into a monster, ripping another man's throat put of his neck.
  • A woman gets her throat slashed unexpectedly, blood sprays. Quick but disturbing.
  • Ep. 3: A woman gets violently tossed around in a police van.
  • Through the series, there's a recurring theme of child (physical) abuse. It's discussed, appears in overlapping audio, and sometimes short images flash on screen.

Profanity

  • Several uses of the "F" word.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Kills come by extremely frightening monsters at extremely unexpected times.
  • Not only does the series deal with supernatural elements, but it also takes place during the 1950s with the main protagonists being people of color, which means there are a lot of scary scenes involving racism.
  • (Deleted. Personal opinions about ratings are not appropriate for the Parents Guide.)

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • A man and woman are kissing heavily on a bed. The man takes his shirt off, and the woman changes her mind and asks him to stop. He does not obey and continues to undress. He takes off his pants and a snake jumps out and attacks the woman. No nudity, in that scene. However, An earlier shot shows a graphic painting of Adam about to make love to Eve, with her upper body nudityseen, but her genitals obscured by angle; Adam is shown to have a snake between his legs in place of male genitalia.
  • A man being sodomised repeatedly with the heel of a stiletto - rear male butt nudity - extremely disturbing.
  • Ji-Ah becomes a kumiho during sex. Basically she has "tails" come out of various body parts that attach to her partner, take their souls, and kill them. Somewhat disturbing to watch as they come out of her during the sex scenes and attach to the partner. She is usually fully nude in these scenes, but never in the series is there female genitalia shown, as lower body views are from the side primarily.

Violence & Gore

  • Men get brutally killed by a frightening monster, spraying blood over others.
  • i-Ah becomes a kumiho during sex. Basically she has "tails" come out of various body parts that attach to her partner, take their souls, and kill them. Somewhat disturbing to watch as they come out of her. As she transforms, she kills her partner and is covered in blood. One scene is shown through a backlit screen.
  • A haunted house causes an elevator to suddenly decapitate a man. Graphic and bloody. Several ghosts can be seen afterward, each with a deformity or disturbing sign of violence.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The beginning scene takes place on a battlefield, where Lovecraft's monsters battle Powerless soldiers. The most frightening of these monsters being Cthulu (a giant squid with legs and wings for those who don't know who he is).
  • The sheriff's deformed body turning into a monster, is very frightening.
  • Ruby under goes a version of metamorphosis. She is given a potion that allows her to temporarily experience life as a white woman. However, when she changes back to her normal self, the white skin basically melts off and is bloody. Can be very disturbing.
  • Ji-Ah becomes a kumiho during sex. Basically she has "tails" come out of various body parts that attach to her partner, take their souls, and kill them. Somewhat disturbing to watch as they come out of her.
