Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that the main character of this adult crime drama is a maverick undercover FBI agent who's willing to break the rules if it gets the job done. His peers respect him, and his superiors tolerate his behavior since he has a strong record of bringing in the bad guys. But some of his actions seem way over the line, such as blowing up a colleague's car with a rocket launcher. Some of what he does is part of maintaining his cover, but he also seems to relish abusing his authority, whether he's hazing a rookie partner, "borrowing" weapons from the bureau's armory without proper authorization, or blowing up vehicles to impress a potential buyer in an arms deal. Expect some intense, realistic violence, a fair bit of drinking, and some drug use, as well as some unbleeped swearing (including "s--t").
No sex, but heavy flirting between characters and some innuendo.
Plenty of violence, ranging from drunken bar fights to gun battles and even the occasional rocket launcher. Most of the characters carry guns. Some of the fights look realistic and intense, leaving the combatants bloodied. One sequence involves people playing Russian Roulette while high on drugs (nobody loses). Storylines include arms deals.
Some unbleeped swearing, including "s--t," "bulls--t," "prick," and "bitch."
Barker is a classic law enforcer who doesn't play by the rules but gets the job done. He's respected by his peers, but some of his superiors wonder if he's on the take. As an undercover agent, he's expected to lie -- but some of his ploys clearly skirt the rules, both the minor bureaucratic ones that can make simple processes take weeks and the important ones, like constitutional protection. Barker also seems to relish hazing his rookie partner -- but although Dove gripes about the treatment, he has nothing but admiration for the veteran agent.
Drugs / Tobacco /
A fair amount of drinking and drug references; some scenes show people taking drugs. The agents often unwind after work at bars, where some people are obviously drunk.
