Nothing too Graphic but a lot of themes

Good show, extremely compelling and interesting. The crimes they deal with are pretty gruesome in nature but nothing is every graphic in nature. The sexual crimes in the show are what makes it iffy. A few of the sexual crimes were shocking even to me (a 19 year old guy) but nothing graphic is every shown. No nudity.

best film of all

i still recommend the film to be watched with parent as a guide coordinator . very witty and down to earth dialogue. the acting of all the cast is excellent , you feel that you are part of the movie , you feel that you are a part of the virtual reality and imaginary mini world of the movie and its actors
