The idea behind the show is to expose some of the amazing, horrible, unbelievable, and tragic things that are happening all over the world through a Western point of view. The reporters take an immersive approach -- one that will make some people uncomfortable -- and often put themselves in danger (whether more for the nobility of reporting or the thrill of personal experience is unclear).
Positive Role Models & Representations
Intense images of dead bloody bodies, severed body parts, family members standing over the dead bodies of their loved ones screaming and crying, etc. Such images are usually not lingered over, but they are extremely disturbing nonetheless. Soldiers (sometimes children) carry and sometimes fire guns. Discussion of suicide bombings, war, assassination, etc.
Some episodes focus on aspects of the sex trade and may use sexual language: a young forced prostitute explains she had to learn about "doggie style" in order to work.
The occasional curse flies by, but the really vivid language here is usually connected with violence, as when a subject graphically describes how child suicide bombers are blown apart.
Ease of Play
One episode prominently showcases young children smoking enthusiastically on camera. Reporters might imbibe alcohol, smoke, or use substances during the course of reporting in order to be more fully immersed.
