"What's scented meat?" - character of Marty to Rust
(from the season 1 finale)
"If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of divine reward then, brother, that person is a piece of sh*t. And I’d like to get as many of them out in the open as possible. You gotta get together and tell yourself stories that violate every law of the universe just to get through the goddamn day? What’s that say about your reality?"
(regarding the origin of religion)
"Been that way since one monkey looked at the sun and told the other monkey, “He said for you to give me your f**king share.'"
"You know the main difference between you and me?"
"No, no. You are incapable of admitting doubt."
"I doubt that."
"The ontological fallacy of expecting a light at the end of the tunnel, well, that's what the preacher sells, same as a shrink. See, the preacher, he encourages your capacity for illusion. Then he tells you it's a f**king virtue. Always a buck to be had doing that, and it's such a desperate sense of entitlement, isn't it? 'Surely this is all for me. Me. Me, me, me. I-I-I’m so f**king important.'"
"Folks puttin' what few bucks they do have into a little wicker basket being passed around. I think it's safe to say nobody here's gonna be splitting the atom."
"You know me. I don't see the connection between two dead cats and a murdered woman... But I'm from Texas."
"He ain't gonna talk with you."
"I got a car battery and two jumper cables that argue different."
Other: Police brutality & even killing of criminals depicted and portrayed as an excusable means to an end.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: VERY intense scenes. This is part of why it is compelling as a thriller, but it would be too much for many sensitive people.
Sexual Content: Full female nudity and realistic scenes of sexual intercourse. Some sex quite primal and one scene involving sex while man was handcuffed. Lots of full frontal nudity of females, even in the opening credits. Devout feminists or anyone who has been sexually abused would not enjoy this series.
Violence: Frequent fist fights & shootings. Extreme violence discussed and suggested. Extremely sick, primal, ritual mass murders depicted and discussed as one of the main topics of the film.
Coarse Language: Frequent foul and explicit language every few minutes
Other: Tobacco and alcohol use are shown, as well as one episode with some heavy drug use.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: The series itself is intense and dark, mostly from the ambiance, without too many scenes of an aggressively frightening nature. The churning suspense may be too intense for some, though.
Sexual Content: Female nudity is shown multiple times (breasts and buttocks, mostly). There is also one scene in which male buttocks is shown. Scenes of a sexual nature are depicted once every two or three episodes.
Violence: The violence is infrequent, but when it does occur, it is graphic and, for some, disturbing.
