Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that, aside from a few semi-steamy scenes involving adults in the throes of implied passion, there's no reason families can't watch this show together. The overarching message of helping others is a positive one, and the language is surprisingly clean. The main character also proves a worthy role model as he navigates his newfound role of once-sharky lawyer turned do-gooder.

Sexual Content

Adult characters are occasionally showing "making out," with the implication that they're in the act of having sex. But no sensitive body parts are shown.


Not applicable


Some use of words like "ass" and "damn."

Social Behavior

Although Eli is conflicted about his new mission in life, he moves mountains to help other people. In the beginning, his motivations are purely selfish. But over time, he truly begins to become a more selfless person.


George Michael and his songs "Faith" and "Freedom" are central to the plots of several episodes.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Adults are sometimes shown drinking socially.
