Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Coma is a tense medical thriller that could spark hospital- or doctor-related worries in younger viewers. There are many views of graphic and gory medical procedures, including an emergency procedure performed on a choking grade-school boy as his mom cries hysterically and piteously beside him. There are also creepy shots of hanging, motionless, dead-looking bodies and people lying near death in hospital beds, festooned with tubes. The main character is physically assaulted and choked in a dark alley and watched on surveillance cameras. Sexual content includes characters dipping into a hot tub nude together (though no body parts are shown). There's some cursing, including a scene where the main character is sneeringly called a "bitch." Characters drink at a work party, but no one acts drunk.

Sexual Content

One character is romancing another to advance his career; the two are shown nude in a hot tub together (no sensitive body parts are shown). One character sends another a text reading "Did you screw her?" after he spends the night with a woman.


Many shots of gory medical procedures, including a procedure performed on a crying, choking grade-schooler. Many other scenes of people lying in bed motionless and covered with tubes, as well as hanging, motionless bodies. The main character is physically assaulted and choked in a dark alley.


Some curse words: "hell," "ass," "bitch."

Social Behavior

Ultimately, evildoers are punished, and their crimes aren't glamorized, though viewers may come away with the idea that many in the medical profession are greedy and amoral (despite the fact that there are dependable and even noble characters), and younger viewers may wind up thinking they shouldn't trust doctors.
