Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the original Ironside offers lots of entertaining moments for police procedural fans, but really isn't intended for younger kids thanks to its story-driven narratives about things like police corruption and murder. The content is mild compared to today's procedural standards, but it contains some drinking, smoking, and occasional gun use.

Sexual Content

Occasionally men's bare chests are visible. Prostitution is occasionally a theme.


Guns are visible, but shootings aren't very frequent. Ironside is in a wheelchair thanks to a bullet wound. Murder and other criminal activity are frequent themes; struggling with and fighting off people is sometimes shown.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

The focus on crime sets a dark tone, but Ironside shows how smarts can catch a criminal and solve a crime. The fact that Ironside's in a wheelchair supports the idea that disabled people can fully participate in a professional environment. Concerns about gun use is occasionally discussed.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink alcohol (whisky, brandy), and sometimes smoke cigarettes.
