Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this show is edgy and interesting, but not for kids. The characters are all experiencing deep traumas: mental illness, addictions, marriage gone awry, cancer, suicide, human euthanasia, you name it. A major ongoing theme involves how people cope (or don't cope) with their personal pain. Some characters use prescribed drugs, while others use street drugs; some drink socially, while others drink to anesthetize themselves; some rely on healthy intimate relationships, while others have dangerously random encounters; some "dialogue" endlessly, while others won't; and some reach for help, while others fend it off.

Sexual Content

Sex, which takes place frequently, is depicted both as healthy intimacy and indulgent debauchery.


Bloody suicide; homicidal attacks by psychotic patients; fistfights.


Foul mouths run rampant ("motherf---er," "c--t," "ass-wipe," ethnic slurs, more).

Social Behavior

Most characters are in deepening psychological trouble; how they deal with it is a provocative theme.


A major theme is that money doesn't buy happiness.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drugs (of all kinds) and drinking (a lot of it) in every episode.
