This is the original Australian series in 8 parts, the first one "Hector" sets the situation and takes the widest view with the cast in general, the next seven each have primary focus on one of the guests/participants at Hector's party, and their interactions with others. This is a social situation series. The wikipedia article about "The Slap" has additional information. I think it is fair to conclude that "The Slap" is unsuitable for children because of (partial) nudity, language, and sex scenes and situations.

This is a brilliant series, based on an Australian novel about an extended Greek-Australian family whose lives are turned upside down after a child is slapped by an adult at a party. All of their connected stories are interesting, as are the ways they connect. Jonathan LaPaglia (brother of Anthony) is excellent as is Essie Davis, otherwise known as "Miss Fisher"
