The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

There are some scenes where unmarried people are in bed, but not much is shown. There is also heterosexual and homosexual content throughout the series, but as I recall there aren't any graphic scenes. There is a porn component in a few episodes, but again, it's more implied than displayed. For someone really concerned about that, this entire series might not be the best to see.

There is a quick nudity shot in season 2 Episode 3 (the Dead) a woman gets out of bed naked the side of her breast is seen and her butt as she walks away.

There is violence, killing, some bloodshed--but this isn't a very violent show. It's based in the innercity and is quite realistic. If you want to avoid all violence, I probably wouldn't suggest viewing this series (though it's quite tame).

Probably the word "ass" and some of the more typical swear words--damn, hell. Not sure if much more than that is used.

The main character has a problem with drug use and alcohol, and drugs and alcohol are *not* shown in a glamorous way. In restaurant and social scenes people are shown using wine or other drinks. If you want to avoid any reference to alcohol or smoking, you probably shouldn't watch this series.

People are shot, others die from illness. It's not gory, but it is realistic.
