Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Almost Human is a science-fiction show about human and cyborg officers investigating a shadowy criminal syndicate. Almost Human features an intense level of violence: battles with guns and bombs, futuristic weaponry such as laser weapons, injuries, shootings, and dead bodies. Creepy imagery may prove too much for younger viewers, such as human-looking androids with dead eyes hanging in body bags or androids shown with their heads or faces removed. Characters are frequently in mortal jeopardy and may be suddenly killed. There is some mild cursing, and many of the characters are single and may flirt and date.

Sexual Content

Main characters are single and may flirt and date.


Frequent battles with futuristic weaponry: lasers, computerized bombs, a box that horrifically gases an officer to death. The viewer sees mutilated dead bodies, a man shot in the face, and creepy imagery such as android bodies in body bags hanging on rails like dry cleaning.


Some cursing, often in anger: "I don't give a damn!" "The hell I will!"

Social Behavior

Law and order is the business of the main characters, who work hard and care about the people they're protecting. However, officers often use violence and gunplay to do their jobs in a rather grim world.
