Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the main characters in this dramedy are all dead. They serve as "reapers" or spirits who collect others' souls right before they die. Not surprisingly, then, this show is all about death (someone dies in each episode) and the afterlife, which might upset younger or sensitive viewers. Some of the death scenes are also quite graphic and potentially frightening. The show also explores some heavy topics, including transgenderism and bullying.

Sexual Content

Some innuendo. An elderly man skinny dips. Some episodes deal with issues like transgenderism.

Violence

Viewers see how ordinary people die, and these scenes, while rarely involving murder, can be pretty graphic. For example, a man who is impaled with a high heel is shown with the heel embedded in his forehead. Another slips from a diving board and face-plants into the one below.

Language

"Bloody hell," "idiot," "this sucks," "jackass," "sure as hell," etc.

Social Behavior

George and her fellow reapers try to ease other people's transitions to the afterlife, but the behavior of those in the living world (including George's family) is iffy and complex.

Consumerism
