Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this series starts out with a few eyebrow-raisers -- including a brooding teenage girl with a nose ring and a potty mouth -- but it quickly morphs into something that's actually OK for family viewing, within reason. While it's not meant for young kids, the show is fine for older teens, who will likely connect with the hellion described above, and might encourage them to give science a second look.

Sexual Content

Adult characters engage in some sexually charged innuendo, and sex is sometimes used as a weapon. Flashes of skin also pop up occasionally, including shots of women's cleavage and men's naked torsos.

Violence

The town experiences several instances of strange, bloodless violence -- including a cop who loses his leg, a cow who loses half its backside, and lots of explosions. One character murders another by poisoning her cup of tea.

Language

Relatively mild: "bitch," "bastard," 'hell," "suck," and the implication of "motherf---er" (a character is cut off before he can finish the word).

Social Behavior

The overall implication is that science can be pretty cool if used correctly. Alternately, the show reveals that terrible things can happen when the wrong elements come together.
