Some minor sexual activity: Characters wake up in bed together, and the main characters engaged in adultery but were remorseful. Plots sometimes revolve around sexual themes, like prostitution or pornography.


Violence varies from episode to episode. FBI agents carry and sometimes use guns and engage in tense stand-offs, but blood is minimal.


Some adult language in certain episodes, but not generally noticeable.
