Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this adults-only cable drama features explicit sex scenes including topless women, bare-bottomed men, and (hidden) sex toy usage. Drug use is rampant, including one scene of cocaine being snorted by a pregnant woman while she commits suicide. One attractive, appealing character is a drug dealer, while the celebrities portrayed are sometimes complex -- both backstabbing and sympathetic. Some creepy, if unique, elements include a pregnant ghost woman in a romantic relationship with a (live) mentally ill man.
Extreme sexual content, including nudity. Character has spirited pool-side sex with a hooker. Lots of moaning and sex talk.
Occasional violence, including an intense kicking and punching scene. One character commits suicide by drug overdose.
Only the most extreme language is omitted. Frequent uses of "s--t," "ass," "dick," etc. are loud and clear
Both sides -- the celebrities and the tabloids -- have momentarily redeeming moments, but mostly they're backstabbing, pill-popping, promiscious folks.
Blatant product placement: Pontiac, Range Rover, Treo, Dell, and a mention of Dancing With the Stars.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Constant drinking and drug use -- coke, ecstasy, marijuana.
