Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this detective comedy/drama, while funny and lighthearted, depicts dead bodies and some violent action. The main character (who has a tendency to act impulsively and selfishly, though he usually has a good ulterior motive) also pursues women eagerly, but it usually takes the form of flirting and verbal come-ons vs. groping sessions (though there is some making out occasionally). Overall, teens will probably find the main character and the show compelling and amusing.
Lots of flirting (mostly Shawn hitting on attractive women) and occasional making out. References to "sleeping together."
Each show investigates a crime. Dead bodies with some blood (usually very little) are shown, and brief violence with weapons is depicted. But this isn't a major element of the show -- it's more about getting to the bottom of the mystery.
Not too frequent, but words include "damn," "bastard," etc.
The show's premise is based on a deception -- that the main character is psychic. But that deception is put to good use, solving crimes and bringing criminals to justice (amid lots of snarky humor). The main characters also have a strong friendship.
The main character drives a Toyota -- a pretty obvious product placement. Other brands show up and are mentioned by name, including Dunkin Donuts.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some social drinking in the periphery.
