Like the Las Vegas-set series that spawned it, this show suggests we live in a dangerous and violent world. But the tropical Miami setting makes it feel slightly more glamorous than gritty. (That said, violence against women is a common theme.) On the plus side, the series reinforces the importance of using teamwork, applied intelligence, and technology to solve complicated cases.
Violence can be graphic, gruesome, and unsettling.
Sexuality is always in the background in the form of beach/bikini shots. Also, sex is frequently an element in the crimes being investigated.
Occasional swearing: "ass," "bitch," etc.
Subtle product placement, usually around technology.
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Occasional drug and alcohol use by criminals. Rare alcohol use by main characters.
