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.

People are often shown kissing and sex is occasionally implied. Characters are sometimes seen in their underwear. There are many cases where rape is strongly implied and many cases where rape is clearly committed (the most disturbing of which, some might argue, is the implied rape of a young boy being held captive on the Appalachian Trail). A main character goes through a pregnancy. She is not married to the father of the baby, although they are in a serious relationship.

A large variety of murders are shown, as are the resulting dead bodies. The bodies vary in gore from episode to episode, as does the amount of blood. Some cases are more violent than others.

Most often used: (Son of a) bitch, damn, and crap

Occasional religious profanities include "Oh my God" and "Jesus Christ".

Certain episodes show characters consuming alcohol and occasionally smoking. Some cases involve or revolve around drugs.

Many scenes involve torture, murder or rape.

Some characters suffer from an emotional trauma, which results in some episodes being sad to watch.

Suggested Rating: PG-13 for violent content, some language, and sensuality.
