Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Aquarius is a tense, gritty period drama about a cop investigating a runaway who's joined the Manson family. Marijuana is smoked frequently on-screen, and characters drink and smoke cigarettes. There are many sexual references, including oral and group sex (with a fearful underage girl). Women are asked to provide sexual favors as a part of bargains. Cursing includes "hell" and "bitch," plus racial language("spics" and "jigs"). Many characters, including law enforcement, use corrupt means to get information, including roughing up a suspect and planting drugs. The Manson family committed a series of grim murders; viewers can expect to see references to them on-screen.

Sexual Content

Manson's female followers often use sex to further the family's aims. Visual references to sex and oral sex; no nudity. Group sex is graphically depicted on-screen with a not-entirely-willing participant. A woman's sexual favors are used as a pawn in a bargain; references to "plowing" and "boning."


The hero of our drama roughs up a suspect to get information. The action of the show is leading up to a series of grisly murders.


Mild four-letter words: "What the hell were you thinking?" Racial language: references to "spics" and "jigs." Sexual language: references to brothels.

Social Behavior

The drama's focus on law enforcement is subverted by the glamorization of the Manson family.


Drama is based on real-life events and characters but isn't strictly factual, which can confuse young viewers.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Scenes take place at bars and parties with alcohol. Characters frequently smoke marijuana on-screen.
