*Season 1*

Nothing explicit is shown.

There is some kissing.

Talk of prostitution in a few episodes. In one episode a woman attempts to use it to support a drug habit.

Talk of sexual molestation by a family member. Nothing is ever shown, and is handled very tastefully.

One episode centre's around a modeling agency exploiting underage girls into the porn industry. The beginning of one of these porn films is played and the viewer see's a teen girl flirting with a "teacher" in a very seductive way. Later the screen turns away from the video and moaning can be heard before the tape is shut off.

As a prank a girl switches a sex ed tape with a porn film. Nothing explicit is shown but moaning is heard along with some views of a scantily clad woman. Very short, played for laughs.

Some talk about rape.

Many fight scenes throughout, most without any blood.

Many references (not explicitly) to violent crimes, including murder.

Guns are drawn and fired by both police officers (undercover and uniformed) and criminals.

A man is shot after attacking a police officer. He survives.

Lots of talk about gang violence.

None of the violence is really ever bloody (and NEVER gory).

*Season 1*

No strong profanity. Some name calling and exclamations such as "damn" or "darn"

Hanson frequently uses the word "tail" to replace "ass". This is only dubbed over the audio and on the video his mouth still says "ass".

Many of the undercover missions include busting high school drug dealers.
