Some passionate kissing and crude (but not explicit) sexual humor.

References to married men and women having secret affairs during the war, without telling their spouse.

Frequent surgery scenes show some blood.

Brief war violence (i.e. explosions and gunfire) every now and then.

In one episode, the hospital is fired on with mortars three times every hour because a tank was moved there, and eventually, Pierce gets into the tank and drives it into the dump area because he is sick of the shells, while taking fire. Played for laughs.

Infrequent mild language, like "hell" and "damn".

Some drinking and smoking.

There is an episode about Winchester taking medicinal pills which he eventually becomes addicted to.

There is an episode about a woman discovered to be an alcoholic.

There are many heavy topics discussed, such as trauma and violence. The atmosphere is generally light-hearted, but some episodes and later seasons are far more intense than the rest. The series finale is particularly emotionally intense and disturbing.
