Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this entertaining made-for-streaming Netflix series contains some mature content, including some sexual references (including nudity), and very strong language ("c--ksucker," "f--k", etc.). Drinking, smoking, and shooting (animals and humans) is visible, though the blood is minimal. The main character is a reformed gangster, so some of his dealings are borderline illegal or refer to past illegal activities.

Sexual Content

Some sexy stuff, including photographs of bare breasts and references to having sex with minors.


Guns and rifles visible, but are used primarily for hunting. Contains occasional shooting, intimidation, physical violence, and minimal blood. Dead animals (including a severed sheep's head and a shot dog) are visible; one cast member accidentally gets nicked by a bullet (the incident is more funny than violent).


Unbleeped (or subtitled) language includes "f--k," "c--ksucker," "s--t," etc. As well as occasional epithets like "towel head," in reference to a man of Middle Eastern descent.

Social Behavior

The series promotes some understanding of a foreign country (Norway) from a unique American immigrant's perspective. There's also a sense of community and cooperation among the newcomer and his small-town neighbors.


Mercedes-Benz and Toyota logos are visible. Various Norwegian brands are also visible.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Wine, champagne, ale, and homemade brew is frequently consumed. The main character runs a bar. Smoking is visible.
