Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this series -- which follows a principled young doctor as he faces a variety of ethical dilemmas -- takes place in the upscale Hamptons enclave and includes plenty of materialistic, self-absorbed behavior. Party scenes boast frequent drinking and discussions of drug use, and there's some salty language and strong sexual innuendo. People are shown wearing skimpy outfits and taking their clothes off (though there's no outright nudity), and some of the medical procedures could be a little disturbing to sensitive viewers.

Sexual Content

Some strong sexual innuendo. People are shown in skimpy outfits and/or underwear; occasionally characters are shown getting undressed (though no nudity is visible). Breast implants are also discussed.


Some arguing and yelling. Some medical procedures are bloody, but they're intended to show attempts to save lives rather than to scare people.


Some strong audible language, including words like "piss" and "ass" (those like "s--t" are bleeped). Wealthy Hampton residents sometimes refer to weekend tourists as "cit-iots."

Social Behavior

The show frequently dwells in an ethical gray area, with Hank's principles conflicting with what people ask him to do. But overall he means well. The series also highlights the wealthy, privileged world of the Hamptons.


Hank and Jill drive generic Saabs, while other characters drive BMWs, Porsches, and other upscale cars. Products and services like Netflix and American Express credit cards are clearly featured (and discussed).

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Frequent social drinking (beer, wine, champagne, mixed drinks). Frequent discussions about drug use, overdosing, and detox.
