Having watched all 5 seasons within a couple of weeks, I'm going to give it a bit of a seasonal breakdown. I thoroughly enjoyed the series as a whole. If you like fast action, hard hitting, often clever dialogue, and don't mind the violence, then there are great protagonists and antagonists alike!

That being said -
Season 1 is sort of it's own show. Season 2-5 with with Scott & Stonebridge is much better, they have a great dynamic, and I really enjoyed their interactions. Season 2 - halfway through, the sex scenes get more and more graphic, and personally I felt were simply gratuitous nudity, and pretty much soft porn (not my thing), the adult language was also dramatically increased. This continued through to mid season 4 where the sex scenes decreased more and more and were less and less graphic.

This is not a show I would let my kids watch, it is adult viewing in my opinion. I'm sure teenage boys would love it, sex & violence with lots of swearing (graphically/realistically continually), but it is not appropriate for those very reasons.

Season 5 was probably their best season!
