Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this spin-off is just as violent and mature as the immensely popular original. While the behavior displayed by the CSI team is beyond reproach (with only a few minor infractions), the criminals' rap sheet includes assault, murder, and drug use.
When sexual content appears in the show, it's usually related to a crime that has taken place.
The depictions of the crimes are often graphic and gruesome, as in all of the shows in the CSI franchise.
Words like "bitch" and "ass" are routinely used by suspects and witnesses.
The overall tone is gritty and casts the city as a dark and dangerous place. On the plus side, the series reinforces the importance of using teamwork, applied intelligence, and technology to solve complicated cases.
Cellular phones are touted, as are their ring tones.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some of the criminal behavior is focused on drug distribution and/or consumption.
