Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that while even grade-schoolers may enjoy the horror-movie aspects of this series (a spin-off of the hugely popular Buffy the Vampire Slayer), its mature themes make it a better fit for teens. Monsters and other creepy-looking baddies make frequent appearances on the show, and some storylines (an implied homosexual romance, for example) are adult enough that parents may want to preview before letting older tweens and young teens watch.

Sexual Content

Characters date, but there's no implied nudity or too much beyond kissing. Some implications of homosexual relationships. The vampire myth is traditionally a very sexualized one.


Supernatural meddling results in invisible punches and the like. The vampires' enemies are menacing, scary-looking creatures.


Mild: "Damn," "hell," etc.

Social Behavior

Angel is a bad vampire turned good who now devotes himself to battling evil beings.
