I watch this show with my mom, and loved it from the first episode I saw! I don't think it is quite appropriate unless you are a teen and up, and should be watched with parental guidance until around maybe 14 years old. Sometimes I think there is a bit too much around the characters personal love lives, but I love the scenes with the actual emergencies (although it does get quite graphic)! It is very authentic, and has beautiful stories about love, loss, life, grief, friendship, and portrays a great deal of the importance of having family and friends who look out for you. Some episodes are more heavy on the sexual content, but not too full on. It is a beautiful show, with great and touching story lines.
