I've noticed that Common Sense Media has been surprisingly vague on the content on this show, so allow me to clarify. There are just occasionally mild sexual references (including people shown in bed, but no underwear/nudity is shown, and this is only occasionally) and the language is also mild and often infrequent (a**, son of a b****, d*** it). They also show people being shot or stabbed and some dead bodies, but it is usually not very graphic. Overall, it is a very, very clever show that is well made, well acted, and quite funny too. Monk is an endearing character who brings plenty of wit to the screen and his brilliant expertise. This show is, overall, outstanding and I would recommend it to any teen who likes to watch/read Sherlock Holmes and other detective stories.
