Great show, but definitely some strong language for PG

I let my 8 year old son watch this this week and he's hooked, probably because of the gun violence and chase scenes, in addition to the cute dog story line. One character gets shot and you don't know he's wearing a vest until he opens his shirt and reveils the bullet in it. But I'm not comfortable with the level of language in it. Lots of "hell yeah" and "pissed off" and "crap" and derogatory jargon. Not words we use around our house. There is also a heavy love/dating theme, surrounding which my son has asked several questions. Not a bad thing, just want a parent to know. I was surprised at these items from Disney.
