Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Vegas depicts the violence of 1960s Las Vegas in a mostly realistic way, including fistfights, gun fights, and murders. There's minimal blood, although dead bodies do pop up regularly, and some cases involve sexual crimes like rape. Viewers will also catch some mild sexual innuendo between characters, along with kissing and skimpy costumes -- but nothing too graphic or revealing. Language is surprisingly mild and mostly involves words like "damn." There's social drinking, and some characters smoke cigarettes (which is accurate for the '60s setting).

Social Behavior

The show tends to glamorize the seedier sides of Las Vegas (including mob violence), but it balances out with a positive spin on Lamb's stripped-down life on the ranch.
