Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the comics-based Dark Matter is a tense sci-fi thriller set on a mysterious spaceship. The setting may alarm young viewers: It's shadowy and menacing with weird light and shadow; noises on the soundtrack are metallic rasps and unnerving echoes. Futuristic guns are fired often; there's martial-arts-style fighting including swordplay; and an android's hand is severed (bloodlessly) on-screen. Expect cursing such as four-letter words ("hell," "s--t") and gendered cursing such as "bitches" and "pretty boy," as well as some flirting and passing references to sex. Kids who love dark sci-fi will enjoy the show, but others may find it a bit of a yawn.

Sexual Content

Flirting; passing, mild references to sex.


Guns are near-omnipresent on-screen, including futuristic weapons that emit waves of energy. Many violent scuffles; people are thrown against walls. Violence may be scarier for young viewers as soundtrack amps up scary noises and setting is dark, shadowy, and menacing.


Four-letter words infrequently: "hell," "s--t." Gendered cursing: women called "bitches," a man called "pretty boy."

Social Behavior

Cooperation and the sanctity of human life are stressed.
