Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this potentially scary drama depicts a mushroom cloud erupting in the distance, with both adult and kid characters left crying and worried after seeing it. Parents and their children become separated at times, and one teenage boy hears his mother die on an answering machine. Aside from the issues raised by the show's underlying premise (nuclear disaster striking, and people left to fight for survival), violence is the biggest issue here: Several auto accidents leave adults dead, and viewers see some blood and brief glimpses of the dead bodies; a character uses a pocketknife to perform a successful emergency tracheotomy on a young girl; and a man is shot in the back.

Sexual Content

References to past romantic relationships. Nothing sexual.

Violence

Police officers and some civilians carry guns. One man is shot in the back. Several car accidents leave people dead, and viewers see some blood. A girl's throat is pierced with a knife to save her life. Some men scuffle and argue.

Language

Mild: "damn," etc.

Social Behavior

The main characters are all good people with moral values. Some characters may have ulterior motives and unknown pasts. At least one escaped convict is on the loose. Men and women play traditional roles. The cast is all-white, except for one African-American man, who plays a significant role. One minor character is hearing-impaired.
