Very Good TV program, but not for little kids...
Covert Affairs is really good but it contains:
Violence- There are lots (in every episode) gunfights, fistfights, strangling, choking, headbutting, etc, etc, and it's quite gory. Every gunshot is accompanied by a blood spurt, and everything else mentioned above involves a minor amount of blood and gore. 8/10 for violence because it is so bloody and gory and frequent.
Language- Nothing major. B**ch, Da*n, H*ll and Sl*t said infrequently. Language is nothing you wouldn't hear in a PG. 2/10 for language
Sex- There are occasional mild to moderate sex references. These involve references to sex in general & implied rape. Nothing to major. There can also be some occasional sex scenes (which is nothing major, PG material,) which may involve some very brief sexual nudity. 5/10 for sex.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking- Characters are seen going to a bar and occasionally, getting drunk. Some episodes contain drunk characters. Nothing major. One episode contains scenes of drug intake, which is seen clearly. 5/10 for drinking, drugs & smoking.
Overall = 24/40. If Covert Affairs were a movie it would be Rated R for frequent bloody violence, brief sexual nudity & drug scenes. If you tone down the violence in Covert Affairs, it would be a PG-13.
