A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series spotlights a hardworking mom who strives to balance her family and professional lives. But the bounty hunters are often judgmental in their off-handed remarks about criminals -- calling them idiots, for example -- and criminals are sometimes verbally belligerent to the officials.
Positive Role Models
The stars of this show are bounty hunters, who pursue criminals for their own gain (rather than simply because it's the right thing to do). They're sometimes judgmental, sometimes admirable -- but they often let drama take center stage.
Violence & Scariness
The bounty hunters draw guns when pursuing criminals. Arrests have the potential for scuffles when subjects resist.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Sandra makes mild flirtatious moves on her husband, like pinching his butt. She also talks about how she uses her body (with "boobs hanging out") to trick some of her subjects (especially men) into trusting her when she's undercover.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the stars of this reality show are professional bounty hunters who track down wanted criminals. When they make an arrest, they wear bullet-proof vests and approach with guns drawn, since there's always the potential for things to get physical. Emotional family drama also gets air time, and since no one seems bothered by the cameras recording their tears (when a beloved pet dies, for example) or happiness, viewers are left wondering whether the scenes are at least partially contrived. Although the show strives to highlight the general struggles of working moms who balance family and career, it mostly just offers an opportunity for one working mom to pat herself on the back for jobs well done.
Is It Any Good?
Viewers tag along as Sandra balances the two sides of her life -- but lest you tune in expecting a celebratory take on the struggles of working moms in general, be forewarned. The series mostly just glorifies every move that the often brash and domineering Sandra makes, allowing her to verbally pat her own back for being so good at what she does. And with cameras capturing every heartfelt and emotionally draining moment of her life (including a tearful moment when her daughter's dog is killed), the show takes on the same contrived feel shared by so many of its reality counterparts. It's also worth noting that the show includes plenty of gun use, as well as some sexual innuendo and bleeped swearing.
Did we miss something on diversity?
