Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this legal thriller contains several bloody scenes, including one of a man who's been brutally murdered. The camera lingers on his slashed, mutilated body, as well as the blood-smeared walls that indicate a violent struggle. One scene shows a dog with its throat cut lying in a pool of blood. At least one sex scene; it shows very little but is very intimate, with close-ups on slow kissing and skin. Several characters seem good but turn out to be bad. Overall, the series is dark and tense -- not great for kids.

Sexual Content

At least one sex scene that shows very little but feels very intimate, with close-ups on slow kissing and skin.


Several bloody crime scenes, one showing a dog with its throat cut and another showing a man slashed up. Threats of violence. Motorcycle accident (no blood).


Frequent profanity, especially "s--t," though "ass," "bitch," and "hell" are also used often.

Social Behavior

The main character seems to be a good, moral person, but she becomes involved with a cutthroat boss and wrestles with doing the right thing. Her boss fights for good causes but uses underhanded, illegal, and cruel means.
