Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this reality series -- which follows the residents of Greensburg, Kansas, as they struggle to rebuild their town after being hit by a massive tornado -- focuses on the townspeople's will to rebuild and create a model green community, there are some scary stories and frightening news footage of the tornado and the destruction it caused. The show also includes some discussion of loved ones lost during the storm. Words like "ass" are bleeped out.
