Infidelity is a theme in the show. Contains scenes of people hugging, kissing, and pulling off their shirts (occasionally undergarments are visible). Unprotected sex and unexpected pregnancy are occasional discussed in a medical context. One episode features a baby delivery.
During occasional arguments people are threatened with cross bows, rifles, and other hunting gear. Some injuries. Blood is sometimes visible during medical procedures.
