I wouldn't think. There are scenes of violence, sexuality and coarse language. If I was a mom I sure wouldn't let my eleven year old watch.
As they say in the biz, "Viewer discretion is advised."

It's not just the coarse language etc., Thong--it's the whole context. These guys operate in a pretty objectionable climate--the violence is quite graphic, the swearing pervasive, and the sex is not always tender love between people in a long-term relationship.

I'd say definitely not for under-13s.
(I edited your subject line to make it clearer, and hopefully noticed by more UK viewers!!)

Forgot to mention that there's also some nudity, and not just the female kind.

"Some nudity"--that's one way to put it.
We've been treated to the sight of innumerable naked women casually crossing in front of the camera--I for one found it refreshing to see all of Carl.
Not necessarily delectable, but fair's fair, sez I.

If there's a significant age difference, I think this is a little unfair.
If I were your mother, I could see an argument for letting you watch it, with the agreement that a) Gigi could choose a different program some other time or on a different set in the house and b) if she needed to come into the lounge for something, you'd have to change the channel till she left.

Not my decision, but while I agree it's inappropriate for an 11-year-old, I'm not sure that's a reason to prohibit you from seeing it.

Lucky you!
Yeah, it's warning-worthy, but not in a nasty, gratuitous way. It all works. Come back and tell us how you like it!

Just seen an ad on F/X for the begining of the end, starts on Friday at 10pm, how very considerate of them to time perfectly with Lost at 9pm. :D
