Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this suspenseful British spy action-drama isn't for the faint of heart. It features a hefty amount of realistic, bloody violence, including stabbings, brutal beatings, and gunplay. Characters are also bound and gagged, taken hostage, held at gunpoint, and killed onscreen. Storylines often reflect real-world events, so topics like race violence, domestic abuse, illegal immigration, and terrorism are common. The main characters are government agents who, although admirably courageous, must lie to their families about their work; forge false relationships to gather intelligence; and use bribery, threats, and even violence to accomplish their goals.

Sexual Content

Occasional references to sexual activity include comments like "I'm banging your sister" some kissing scenes.


Guns and other weapons (bombs, biological warfare, etc.) are used frequently; in at least one scene, a woman is shot in the head at close range. In multiple scenes, characters are beaten, burned, cut, and stabbed.


Sporadic use of words like "damn" and "s--t" (unbleeped).

Social Behavior

Government agents put their lives on the line on a daily basis to fight global terrorism and maintain citizens' safety. But their methods include lying to the people they love, using threats and bribes to force others' assistance, assuming fake identities, and forging insincere relationships with unwitting accomplices. They can also alter personal and financial information to take down terrorist groups and other criminals.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
