Summary of Season 1 (2007) - 4 discs

Having earned a reputation for producing groundbreaking television series, HBO now redefines risqué with a show that -- rather explicitly -- examines the intimate components of a relationship. And its creators hold nothing back. Jane Alexander plays a therapist who counsels three couples that have reached a crossroads over sexual issues. Each episode's graphic look at what goes on in the bedroom offers tender honesty about the fragility of love.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this envelope-pushing HBO drama contains graphic sexuality and nudity (including images of both male and female genitals, masturbation scenes, and much more) that may be too shocking for the average adult viewer -- which makes it an absolute no-no for kids. Since sex is an integral part of the plot, characters are shown talking about it -- or engaging in it -- in every episode. They also swear and do some social drinking, but you'll barely notice amid all of the naked bodies.

Sexual Content

Almost constant, and extremely graphic for television -- pay cable or otherwise. Very little is left to the imagination: Viewers will see buttocks, breasts, testicles -- and even penises and vaginas. Characters are shown having sex and masturbating.

The word "f--k" (unbleeped) is used often as both a verb and an expletive.

Social Behavior

Characters' motivations are complex -- and refreshingly real. Relationships aren't easy, and many characters struggle with them.


Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters are occasionally shown drinking in social settings.
