Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Major Crimes is a spin-off of TNT series The Closer, and is set in the same tense law enforcement milieu of the LAPD's Major Crimes unit, with mayhem occurring frequently onscreen. Guns, gore, and dead bodies are shown, and characters are often in jeopardy, though the main characters are police officers and generally a bit removed from immediate physical danger. A female captain leads the Major Crimes team and is shown working efficiently and effectively in a ethnically diverse group of officers. However, the officers occasionally give ethics the heave-ho in the interest of solving a crime, as in the pilot episode when detectives pretend to be offering a plea bargain deal to a suspect in order to trick him into confessing.

Sexual Content

Some veiled discussion of sex and sexual issues: "Priests don't always make good babysitters," says one character to another.


The show centers on a law enforcement unit that deals with violent crimes, so guns are frequently brandished and there is both mayhem and murder. Dead bodies are shown, as is some gore, i.e. gunshot victims lying in pools of blood.


Some cursing and insulting epithets such as "You are the biggest two-faced ass-kisser I ever saw."

Social Behavior

Professionalism and ethics are sometimes put aside in the interest of solving cases and putting criminals behind bars. However, the rare glimpse of a competent woman in charge of a law enforcement division is very positive.
