Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's very little to do with sports in this imported English soap opera. Instead, it's a down-and-dirty look at the life led by superstar footballers (aka "soccer players") and their wives. Life out of the sporting arena is more menacing than anything that unfolds on the field.

Sexual Content

Is there anything else? Seduction is the name of the game, as are numerous couplings, lots of risque outfits, and partial nudity.


Brawls and catfights are common -- as are more insidious, mental battles, such as blackmail.


Racy behavior is accompanied by equally racy language (e.g. "You look like s__t"). Though expletives don't pepper every scene, double entendres do (for example, a woman propositions another by peeking at her breasts and saying, "I've seen worse").

Social Behavior

No one behaves in this over-the-top drama. A partial list of crimes: Kidnapping, extortion, infidelity. You name it, it's here.


This is an affluent world, and the wives parade in only the best clothing and jewelry. Some clearly luxury brands.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking, Viagra abuse, smoking: Not much is left untouched.
