Soap fans will probably enjoy Watch Over Me. It's got everything daytime dramas have -- including sexual tension and escapades, lying and deceit, and unforeseen twists -- but because it airs in primetime, the show's producers have stepped things up a notch. In one episode, for example, Julia daydreams about trysting with Jack, and the subsequent scene shows the pair in a steamy, semi-clad embrace. Viewers also see a woman bent on avenging her son's death buy a black-market gun, as well as flashbacks to Jack's girlfriend's violent murder.

Of course, for all of those same reasons, Watch Over Me isn't for kids. It's an action-packed, over-the-top guilty pleasure that's best saved for mature teens and adults.
