Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Professionals is an action-adventure series that features lots of explosions, physical fights, machine gun fire, car crashes, and other violent moments that lead to injuries and some wounds (but nothing too bloody or gory). There's some strong words, some flirting and innuendo-filled tension, and on occasion drinking is visible.
Is It Any Good?
This average series, an international production that originally streamed in Europe, features international locations and action-filled sequences to create a sense of mystery and adventure. Professionals offers some occasional fun moments, but mediocre writing turns what could be a good story to one weighed down by a lack of character development and trite dialogue. Unfortunately, there are no high-end stunts or computer graphics to compensate for this, either. If you're willing to look past these shortcomings, Professionals may be worth watching to see actors you've liked. But if you're looking for an exciting action-adventure series, you'll be left disappointed.
