Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this hour-long science-fiction drama features consistent moments of violence, with occasional blood. With the focus of the show on crime solving, expect to see dead bodies, elaborate chases, some gun use, and some intense physical fights. The series is best for teen and up and does have some strong positive messaging about embracing what makes you unique and using exceptional abilities for the benefit of humankind.

Sexual Content

Mild flirtatious comments between characters; occasional kissing. Some sexual situations.


Because the show revolves generally around solving unusual crimes, there are frequent moments of physical violence, but little blood. One episode features a sniper shooting that ends in a visible gunshot wound and slight bleeding. A lead character's superpowers involve the use of extreme brute force, often resulting in particularly violent physical altercations.


Though there is no frequency to it, there are occasional words like "damn" and "balls."

Social Behavior

The investigators utilize supernatural methods, but still employ traditional problem solving skills. They are dedicated to protecting others and generally serving the good of humanity.
