Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this high-concept crime procedural has plenty of violence. From hand-to-hand combat that includes blood, heavy weaponry, and references to September 11, this show is definitely not for young kids or sensitive viewers. Also expect some minor sexuality, plus some drinking, smoking, and references to drug dealing.
As part of an occasional flashback to a deceased relative, sequences feature the lead character in bed with his dead wife. No nudity, but close-ups of skimpy clothing and suggested sexual contact.
Heavy violence. Conflicts are frequently resolved using hand-to-hand combat, sometimes with blood. Gun violence and other weapons such as automatics and rocket launchers also figure heavily in the plot.
Occasional use of language such as "damn," "hell," and "ass."
Some mild positive messaging in the portrayal of the lead characters and their dedication to justice. The line between good and evil is clearly drawn.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A lead character is depicted as drinking heavily before cleaning up his act. Criminals on the series are frequently involved in the drug trade and are depicted smoking.
