Good

I don’t have kids, so it’s hard for me to say what age group this would be okay for. Being as the show does include naked corpses. Which, I must admit bothers me. I’m not sure how TV monitoring works in other countries, so I don’t know if this is normal. When bodies are shown in the morgue, or autopsies are being performed they are fully naked. That is the only nudity on the entire show. I find it very odd. I cannot take a lot of gore, I do not find the show to over so gore. Some shows like this can. As for the show itself, it’s very good. There is some profanity thrown in here and there, not nothing major at all. Nothing more than you’d here on the street nowadays.

Good show, but more adult than expected.

Only watched a few episodes so far, but had to put in my two cents as the ratings on here don't cover as much as I would have hoped. I watch bones and supernatural with my 13 year old, and going off the ratings here this seemed to be on par with those shows as far as language and sexual content, so we thought we would give it a shot. But it is way off. The very first episode has multiple mentions of child rape and molestation, with the assailant getting away with it because he died in a way that there is no evidence to his past crimes. And another assailant (the victims father) also getting away with it, because his daughter didn't tell anyone before she died. Quite a few F-bombs which were not in the initial reviews, Along with a fully naked corpse on a slab for a good part of the episode. So far I do like this show, but will not be watching it with my teen anytime soon.

Too much sex
Too much swearing
