Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this dark crime drama has significant supernatural elements and occasional moments of suspense that will definitely frighten younger viewers. In addition, the level of violence is sometimes heavy and includes weapon use (shootings, etc.) and occasional scenes of explicit blood and/or gore. Language is relatively sparse but does include "ass," "hell," and "damn."

Sexual Content

Occasional flirting and mildly suggestive dialogue.

Violence

Frequent scenes of both hand-to-hand and gun violence. Many murders, and several of the shootings feature clear, explicit gore. Overall, there's a generally ominous tone.

Language

Occasional use of language like "damn," "hell" and "ass."

Social Behavior

A small group of protagonists stands up against a shadowy, evil organization in an attempt to protect others and serve the greater good. But the show's tone is dark, and there's the sense that evil lurks everwhere.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Sequences taking place in the 1960s (when the prison was still active) occasionally feature characters smoking or drinking, which reflects typical behavior of that era. One of the modern-day supporting characters owns a bar, and scenes occasionally take place there, with characters engaging in social drinking.
