Click the show icon, and you can see more information like any film ratings G, PG or R if the movies was rated as well as genre info like comedy, drama or documentaries. 
Viewster also gives a nice option to watch a trailer clip so you can see if you will even like the show or movie before you waste much time only to find it's a dud.
Content is a little more diverse and you will even find some more geared towards adult.
