The show tends to glamorize the seedier sides of Las Vegas (including mob violence), but it balances out with a positive spin on Lamb's stripped-down life on the ranch.
The main character uses unconventional tactics and doesn't always adhere to the letter of the law, but he does the things he does in pursuit of justice. He also surrounds himself with like-minded people whom he trusts. On the flipside, there are clear villains, so it's easy to spot the "bad guys."
Realistic violence includes fistfights, some shooting, and injuries, but with minimal blood. Dead bodies are common. Some cases involve sexual crimes like rape, but they aren't depicted in a graphic way.
Mild innuendo between characters along with brief shots of kissing/making out.
Swearing includes words like "damn."
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Social drinking. Some characters smoke cigarettes (accurate for the era).
