Characters often lie, cheat, steal, and kill to achieve their own selfish agendas -- but most of them get their comeuppance in the end. Assumptions of guilt can change quickly, and mild suspense exists throughout the show.
Since each episode centers on solving a murder, much of the dialogue relates to killing. The act of murder is shown (with some blood when applicable), but the show's overall mood is light, and the violence is fairly hokey.
Flirting, some kissing, and allusions to sexual activity, extramarital affairs, and illegitimate children. Occasionally women are shown in skimpy undergarments or a bath towel.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Adults sometimes drink and/or smoke in social settings or at home.
