Surviving the Cut is a great, inspiring, and informative show about the U.S. Special Forces. The men persevere through physically and emotionally tasking challenges with bravery and teamwork. That being said, there is a LOT of bad language. It is bleeped, but the amount is still staggering -and every child knows just what's going on. There is a good deal of intense physical strain, blood, vomit, and passing out too. Great show for teens and up.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Great role models
