Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that, like The X-Files, this sci-fi/action show combines conspiracy theories and sometimes-violent thrills. There are plenty of explosions, gunfights, and dead bodies (some of which are pretty gruesome to look at), as well as a bit of suggestive content (some scenes show the female lead wearing very little) and drug experimentation. The show promotes some unusual scientific theories, including interdimensional plots, dangerous biological weapons, advanced cybernetics, and much more. Most of these are clearly impossible, a few seem quite plausible, and some fall somewhere in between, which could have teens wondering where to draw the line between hard science and make-believe.
There are some romantic encounters, some of which show women in their underwear. Sexual relationships are implied.
Plenty of action, including gunfights, car chases, explosions, and some pretty gruesome medical experiments that lead to even more gruesome deaths (with badly decomposed/disfigured bodies shown in detail).
Language includes words like "damn," "hell," "bitch," and "ass."
Loyalty is a tricky thing in this show. Most of the characters are trying to expose a vast conspiracy that stretches to another world and threatens everything in this one. But some characters have questionable motives and even serve as double agents. There's lots of suspicion and fear here.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some social drinking. Dr. Bishop sometimes experiments with LSD and other substances (including marijuana).
