Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this police drama touches on some heavy, mature topics, including revenge, addiction, and casual sex. The main character has adopted a Zen-like attitude to cope with his years behind bars, but he's secretly trying to find whoever framed him. Meanwhile, he pursues pleasure, whether in the form of anonymous and attractive young ladies or tasty fresh fruit. His partner is a recovering drug addict who likes to pick up men in bars. There's also plenty of violence as the two gun-carrying detectives investigate crimes; expect images of bloody dead bodies, dismembered fingers, and more.

Sexual Content

Some onscreen love scenes and brief flashes of naked bodies, but no sensitive parts shown. Charlie's sudden fame (and perhaps his massive settlement) has made him a magnet to women, who stream in and out of his bedroom, often without being introduced to viewers (apparently, there's no need for names, as they won't be seen again). Charlie's new partner has addiction issues and seems to have taken to anonymous sex as a substitute for drugs.


Frequent flashbacks to violent beatings in prison, as well as graphic shots of murder victims that include blood, dismembered fingers, and other unpleasant images. Detectives carry (and sometimes use) guns.


Words include "bitch," "damn," "hell," etc.

Social Behavior

As a cop, Charlie generally adheres to the rigid hierarchy of the force, though his quirky habits tend to annoy his coworkers. His supervisor seems to be looking for a way to kick Charlie off the force and leans on Charlie's partner Dani for evidence of misbehavior. Meanwhile, Charlie is quietly investigating the case the led to his own wrongful conviction, despite being warned to refrain from pursuing vengeance.


Mild, although Charlie, who became a Zen convert while incarcerated, is clearly having a tough time avoiding attachment to some material objects, especially a fancy new sports car.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some characters drink, sometimes to excess. Dani seems to like going to bars to pick up men, and there are references to her past drug use. Some scenes feature drug dealers and their merchandise.
