Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this show is all about finding real monsters in the real world. So anyone who's ever told their kids that there's nothing out there in the dark might have some explaining to do, because the host and his team take all of these legendary bogeymen very seriously. But despite the fact that they look hard for evidence, they don't find much -- though they do sometimes manage to run roughshod over the local residents. The good news is that other than the whole focus on monsters, there's not much to worry about content-wise.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


Some frenzied running from (or after) potential monsters, but nothing is actually caught, so there's no violence. That said, the idea of all of these monsters being out in the real world could scare some kids.


Occasionally a "damn" slips out, but for a team of monster-hunters spending time in very creepy locations, there are surprisingly few salty words.

Social Behavior

Gates and his team may strike some as "typical Americans," as they brazenly stroll into remote, often poorly developed villages in remote corners of the world, and he sometimes seems pushy, demanding, or patronizing when interacting with local residents.


Some airline names are visible when the team flies off to investigate rumors and legends.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Some people smoke in the countries the team visits. The Truth seekers are asked to chew betel nut. Some drinking.
