MAID has many Christian, moral elements. The love between a mother and a child is prominent throughout the entire series, with many different displays of motherly attitudes and behavior. In the end, all the mothers and children love each other with everything they have. In addition to this, forgiveness and honesty are also very prominent in the series. Someone is constantly forgiving others and giving them a second chance, even when the person may not deserve it. Honesty and realizing the truth also happens a lot in this series, which causes a lot of acceptance of people and their behavior. Alex’s father, Hank, is also a practicing Christian in the series. This is difficult for Alex to understand considering their past. That said, there’s a lot of immorality depicted in MAID, including strong foul language, sexual content, some explicit nudity, substance abuse, and other immoral content and behavior. So, MOVIEGUIDE advises extreme caution.
