A new TV show, Fallout, has debuted on Amzon Prime Video. It's an adaptation of the popular video game series that takes us to a post-apocalyptic world, where many people live in safe and orderly crypts that were supposed to protect them from a nuclear disaster. One such person is the series' main character, who comes to the surface and is shocked to discover the wasteland that awaits her there.

Fallout games are allowed from the age of 18, but what about the TV series? Here we have bad news for younger viewers, as Amazon's production is also intended for mature audiences, that is, ages 18 and up.

Why was the new TV show given such a strict age category? This decision is most justifiable, because in the Fallout TV series are present: nudity, violence, substance use, alcohol use, smoking, foul language, sexual content. This content is inappropriate for people under 18.

The creators of the TV series have made an effort to faithfully reflect the climate of the games, so there could be no lack of violence and adult content, so unfortunately not everyone should watch this production. But adult viewers can easily sit down for a screening, especially since the Fallout TV series gets great ratings from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the production has 93% based on 59 reviews, which is a very good score. This is a testament to the fact that the creators of this TV show have managed to make a good adaptation of the popular game series.

Below you can watch the trailer for the Fallout TV show, which gives a taste of what to expect from it.
