Great for adults - iffy for kids

My wife and I rarely agree on television series that we both like. This one has been a winner for us and is currently one of our favorite shows. The story is well presented and the historical aspect of it is very interesting, but some of the drama is very much in the vein of "Mad Men" with a lot of emphasis on the sexual relationships these men had with their wives (and in some cases, with other women). Consistent with the time, nearly everyone smokes and there is a lot of focus on alcohol. We have mature tweens, but this isn't something we have watched with them and although I think the series could generate some interesting conversations if we watched it together, I don't think it would be appropriate for them to watch by themselves.

Not great...

I was excited about this series, unfortunately it focuses too much on Alan Shepherd's infidelity. Every scene with a woman he either flirts or sleeps with them. It's quite ridiculous.

Great show but too much spousal infidelity

My 10 year old and I were really excited to see this, but in episode one there was an intimate bedroom scene and several instances of men cheating on their wives. All in the first episode. I don't want my son thinking that's what good men do. There were also references to sizes of male body parts and that all the week was in Langley was girls and drinking. This is better suited to be a docudrama about Tailhook.
