Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this dark political thriller maintains a mysterious, foreboding tone that may unsettle sensitive viewers. Several violent incidents occur throughout the series, including murders, but many of these events are filmed from a distance. And the camera doesn't linger on victims or gore, focusing on evoking psychological tension more than visual shock. Several characters drink and smoke obsessively. Some scenes show people who are happily intoxicated, while others involve a bitter alcoholic. Romance is a big part of the series, so kissing, passionate embraces, and occasional references to sex appear. Some war scenes appear, as well as subtle references to gang rape.

Sexual Content

Lots of romance, including kissing, subtle talk about sex, and some scenes with couples in bed together (nothing graphic shown).

Violence

Guns appear frequently -- for both target practice and as weapons that kill people. Discussion of war, massacre, rape. Some instances of kidnapping, terrorism, etc. But not much blood or close-up scenes of death.

Language

Occasional "damn."

Social Behavior

The main character is a good guy with strong patriotic beliefs. Around him are a collection of characters -- some good, some bad, most a mix of both. Lots of double-crossing, lying, unsure loyalties. Prejudices against nations, ethnicities, religions, and more help re-create the era.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Main characters drink and smoke cigarettes -- some heavily.
