Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while this spy drama includes plenty of adult material, its tone is positive overall, and the good guys tend to beat the bad guys. Guns are plentiful and used frequently, and although violence isn't constant, it can be strong -- the main character shoots a drug dealer in the knee (with bloody results), a car is crashed intentionally, a group of guys beat up the main character and break his ribs, a boy punches and kicks bullies, and so on. There's some sexual tension between central characters, but it doesn't go much further than making out and some sexually tinged discussions. One semi-likeable character is a self-professed drunk, and another smokes cigarettes. Mid-level cursing ("bulls--t," "ass") is frequent.

Sexual Content

Sexual tension between characters. Some making out and mild groping. Lots of shots of women's bikini-clad breasts and butts.


Some strong violence in short bursts, with bad guys frequently getting shot or injured. Occasional offscreen murder.


Frequent mid-level profanity, like "bulls--t," "ass," "bitchy."

Social Behavior

The overall tone is positive, in that the good guys tend to beat the bad guys. (That said, there's regular violence involved.) The show also subtly reinforces the importance of teamwork when it comes to solving problems.


Some flashy goods (it's Miami!). Mention of Mercedes.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

One character is an admitted "drunk." Dysfunctional mother character smokes cigarettes. References to "E" and drug dealers.
