Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this imported dramedy (which originally aired in its native Britain) contains frank and often shocking depictions of sexual and violent acts, with unbleeped swearing, nudity, and blood. The main characters -- all of whom are convicted delinquents with a chip on their shoulder -- commonly use words like "f--k," "s--t," and "c--t," along with more descriptive terms like "ball sack," "p---y," and "panty sniffer." They also drink and use illegal drugs like pot and cocaine.

Sexual Content

Graphic depictions of sex, upper-body nudity, and references to masturbation and other explicit acts (including urinating on a woman's breasts). Sexually charged banter includes unbleeped terms like "c--t," "c--k," "cum face," "p---y," "panty sniffer," "ball sack," "twat," "d--k," "prick," "tits," and "dildo." One character's powers are exclusively sexual: Anyone who touches her becomes instantly and uncontrollably aroused.


Violence is dark and realistic, with bloody physical combat that results in death or serious injury. For example, a character kills a man by stomping repeatedly on his head.


Characters frequently use unbleeped words like "f--k," "s--t," "bitch," and "wanker," in addition to lots of sexually charged talk.

Social Behavior

Characters live in a dangerous and relatively depressing place, where violence -- and sometimes murder -- is a necessary evil. It's unclear whether they plan to use their powers to help people or hurt people, although teasers hint that at least one will choose the latter.


Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Most of the main characters smoke pot regularly and drink alcohol to get drunk. Some also use illegal drugs like cocaine.
