A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show highlights cops fighting the good fight -- even if the fight is rather raw. All of the officers talk about how they want to help people and serve them by taking "bad guys" off the street. Women cops help break stereotypes about who can do this kind of work and what it means ot be tough. Some iffy racial stuff -- arrestees are disproportionately African American.
Positive Role Models
While the women do sometimes seem too gleeful when busting bad guys, they are also often compassionate in their work. They work hard to be people to look up to, and they're clearly doing a job that they love, and trying to do good at the same time.
Violence & Scariness
Guns are fired, some blood, lots of rough take downs -- mostly justified by the actions of the suspects.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Prostitution is frequently discussed and officers interact with alleged prostitutes. In one episode, officers handle a sex toy and joke about it.

Lots of bleeped language. Also, the word "ass" is heard, but not frequently.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
There are lots of drugs, drug busts, drunk people, the full panoply of substance abuse, but it's mostly about the police busting people for those offenses.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is actual police work being done here, and as a result, it can get pretty rough and pretty ugly. One suspect, for example, is mostly pixeled out, but you can still see the mucous flowing from his face. Expect some bleeped language, tense/violent scenes, and rough talk. Drugs and drug paraphenalia is often visible.
Is It Any Good?
On its own, the show is reasonably interesting. But there just isn't much besides the officers, themselves, to create interest. And while the women are nice, decent people, they're also pretty normal in spite of their jobs. Not to mention that most crime on the show is petty and most criminals pretty pathetic -- which isn't the most interesting thing to watch. If this weren't the fourth iteration, it might be more exciting. Finally, one can't help asking -- are women cops really that rare that four shows are necessary?
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
