Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this dramedy is a little too mature for tweens and some young teens, but older teens should be able to handle most of the issues it raises, from death and grief to divorce, loss, and body image. There's a bit of sexist stereotyping of women, as well as a good bit of flirting and social drinking among adults. Also expect some salty language ("bitch," "bulls--t"), references to violence, and mentions of name brands like Lane Bryant, Hermes, Porsche, and Apple.
Some mild sexual innuendo; frequent flirting; female plaintiffs are convinced to look "sexier" in order to win a cas; etc.
Deb dies in a car accident; Jane dies from a gunshot wound (gun is visible, but not very graphic). Some of the court cases deal with violent circumstances, but the intensity of these moments is often deflected with humor.
Audible language includes "hell," "bitch," "damn," and "bulls--t."
The show's underlying message is that getting by on superficial qualities alone isn't a good thing, but there are some conflicting points about the role that physical attractiveness plays in a woman's success. Some of the women engage in catty behavior at work, and other characters reflect sexist stereotypes about women.
Clothing labels like Lane Bryant and Hermes are frequently discussed. Jane owns a Porsche; Heaven uses Apple computers to process newcomers.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Wine, martinis, and mixed drinks are visible (and consumed by adults) at bars and social gatherings.
