Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that in addition to the violence inherent in its military action sequences, this unexciting series deals with adult themes of adultery, domestic violence, drinking, and miscarriage. Women and men hold stereotypical roles, and children are mostly seen but not heard. Terrorists, at least early in the first season, are Muslim only.

Sexual Content

Passionate kissing, couples in bed together, adultery, some sexual language.


Gunplay, exposions, minor blood, mild torture, hints of domestic violence.


Some adult language. "Sorry's what you tell your girlfriend when you finish too quick."

Social Behavior

The main characters are good guys, fighting for justice with good intentions. One main character is rough and has a history of domestic violence. Gender stereotypes are inherent to the storyline. Terrorists, so far, are exclusively Muslim. One recurring character is in wheelchair.


Corona and Budweiser beer and Jack Daniels bottles appear briefly.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

All of the main characters drink alcohol. Drinking is portrayed as a method for being oneself or relieving stress.
