Mild references to sex and related behavior.

Many of the cases involve adultery.

One episode revolves around "Sapphire Magazine", a men's magazine/softcore porn magazine similar to Playboy.

One episode revolves around a nudist beach, with some near nudity.

One episode involves a scene where a man and woman are kissing passionately in the back of a car for about 20-30 seconds.

Most episodes begin with a depiction of murder. These are violent (and sometimes fairly graphic -- bloody) scenes.

The most graphic murders are only implied. For example, in one episode, a man gets his head crushed by an elephant, but it is off-screen. In another episode, a man is forced into a garbage compactor and is also off-screen, but we do see a lot of blood splatter on the wall.

A woman is discovered hanged.

The occasional "hell" and "damn", and stronger words, like "bitch", "ass" and "bastard", are sometimes (not often) used.

One of the characters uses the phrase "son of a bitch" very often to signify surprise or indignation.

There is one episode with a censored use of the n-word.

Some drinking and smoking every now and then.

Drug references here and there.

Mildly intense (and sometimes even disturbing) scenes are depicted often, but they are usually quick.

In one episode, a woman falls from a clock in a seemingly peaceful campus, and breaks the windshield. Jump scene.

There are many scenes of people trying to escape from people who are trying to kill them.

In one episode, Monk is being pursued by police after being framed for homicide.
