Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Canadian police drama is composed of high-stakes exchanges between a team of elite cops and would-be murderers, bombers, and suicide victims. Violence is the biggest concern, as most of the scenarios turn bloody or otherwise threatening (gunfire, stabbings, beatings, etc.), and some characters die in the crossfire. Viewers who are familiar with series like Law & Order may find this show's pace a lot slower than those of its American counterparts, but the upside is that the writing draws attention to the emotional toll the events take on those involved, including the officers and their families.

Sexual Content

No sex or nudity, but there are some romantic advances between the lone female officer and one of her comrades.


Guns, knives, tear gas, and other weapons are common players in the exchanges with criminals. Some characters die in the crossfire, and the scenes can be intense and bloody. Even when they're not shooting, the team spends a lot of time dressed in full military-style outfits, looking ready for any kind of action.


Given the show's intense subject matter, the members of the team are surprisingly clean-mouthed, but words like "damn," "ass," and "hell" do pop up occasionally.

Social Behavior

The team is regularly thrust into very challenging situations, often involving armed criminals and hostages, and the stakes are literally life-or-death. The show takes pains to show the aftermath of a shooting, when the characters are very obviously distraught after killing a suspect -- even when the act is justified.
