Sex & Nudity

  • Some episodes contain scenes with characters in bed with each other.
  • Throughout the show some sensitive topics regarding sex are discussed, such as sexual abuse/assult and pornography. This may be a trigger for some.
  • Some sexual content that is infrequent. Established couples have sex off-screen but can be shown making out in underwear. Couples also have frank discussions about their sex. An ep briefly deals with phone sex (this is never shown and it's only talked about, but does mention masturbation). Plus as another reviewer said, some sensitive topics regarding sexuality such as pornography, sexual assault, and more (not in a graphic way).
  • A female doctor shows her breasts to a young boy. We do not see anything. She does this so the boy has a chance to see a woman's breasts before being blinded. He leaves the room with an excited look on his face and a raised heart rate.

Violence & Gore

  • As this is a medical drama, each episode involves some sort of surgical room procedure, typically involving images of operating on a person, exposed organs, etc.


  • Most episodes contain little if any swearing. Swear words used are confined to words such as d*mn, a**, Oh my G*d, etc.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes
