Overal the American TV rating system calls this TV-PG, but the content in this show is easily as graphic as a lot of TV-14 shows out there, not sure how that works, but it is what it is.

While it is an adult show, its most likley just fine for mature pre-teens (providing they have the attention span for it at that age).

Not a lot of sexual content, some kissing and a lot of images of men and women in scantily clad swim wear.

No actual nudity is ever shown, but the lead character, Fiona, sometimes wears no bra and the camera is angled to make her nipples visible underneath her shirt. Most female characters in the show are scantily-clad.

Most episodes take place in Miami with opening scenes featuring women in bikinis of various "sizes"

Several episodes have implied sex (nothing explicit) with passionate kissing, and removal of the male's shirt, followed by a cut to the characters in bed covered in sheets.

This show is quite violent at times, though it maintains a fairly low body count.

The majority of the violence involves fairly brutal beatings and hand to hand fighting, this often results in serious bruises and some blood.

As well, many people are shot with bloody, sometimes spraying wounds, images of dead bodies with wounds to match in pools of blood, as well as stabbings.

People are tourtured with beatings and electricity.

Many, many things are blown up, cars are wreaked and people are shot at.

Common use of "damn," "goddamn," "hell," "bitch," and "Jesus."

One use of "bullshit" in the pilot episode

Pervasive drinking and smoking, though none of it is glorified. Also some drug content including the drugging of people and instances of drug sales and trafficing.

Many of the shootouts and chases are notably intense, as well as some brutal torture and kidnaping sequnces.
