Sex & Nudity

7/10

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.

Violence & Gore

7/10 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.

Profanity

5/10 Most often used: (Son of a) bitch, damn, and crap

The occasional use of religious profanity may offend some viewers. Phrases such as "Oh my God" and "Jesus Christ" are often said.

5/10 Certain episodes show characters consuming alcohol and occasionally smoking. Some cases involve or revolve around drugs.

7/10 Many scenes involve torture, murder or rape, which may frighten younger children.

Since this is psychological show, some things would be hard to watch to someone as characters suffer from some disturbing or emotional trauma. suggested rating R for disturbing violent and sexual content including bloody image. 31/50
