Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that in this thought-provoking sci-fi drama, everybody on on the planet is inexplicably given a brief glimpse of their future ... and they're not all thrilled with what they see. Since the universal "blackout" causes many disasters, expect to see plenty of intense/violent scenes, ranging from car crashes to gunfights -- though there are few explicitly gory images. Violence also plays a role in the aftermath of the incident, as investigators look for an explanation and stumble across danger. There's also some social drinking, and one character is struggling with alcoholism. Couples are shown fooling around, and though there's no outright nudity, some of the scenes are rather suggestive.
Partially undressed couples (both teens and adults) are shown fooling around and/or in bed after sex. No on-screen nudity, though women are shown wearing bras or nightgowns. One flash forward includes extramarital affair. Flirting and kissing between both heterosexual and same-sex couples. Joking references to topics like "three ways." Use of words like "slut" and "masturbating."
Some intense sequences show suicides, car accidents, planes crashing, and other disasters. Other scenes depict police-style assaults/confrontations involving high-powered automatic weapons and other firearms. Characters are shot; some injuries are shown, in moderate detail.
Moderate swearing, including "damn," "ass," "hell," "crap," "douche," and "frigging."
The characters on this series all get a glimpse of their own future, and not everyone likes what they see. The premise might prompt viewers to be more willing to accept their lives now, rather than daydream about what might be -- or what might not come to pass. That said, there's plenty of conflict and iffy behavior here, so the overall take-away isn't focused on obviously positive messages.
Some popular musicians are mentioned by name.
