Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this mature Showtime drama is a textured, complicated depiction of the lesbian scene in Los Angeles -- which makes for great grown-up TV, but not necessarily family-friendly fare. Sex, foul language, and questionable behavior abound ... but so do complicated, very human reactions and relationships.
Constant innuendo, banter, and simulated sex. The show is intended to be very racy.
Road rage is about as violent as it gets with this drama, which relies more on emotional upheaval.
Conversations are peppered with talk of sex and the gamut of swear words ("damn," "s--t," "f--k").
Lying, infidelity, theft -- like any other place, the world depicted here is riddled with human imperfection.
The show is set in hip Los Angeles, so there's a high awareness of fashion and celebrity-driven trends.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Alcohol abounds in social situations, as do recreational drugs.
