Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this compelling drama about a lawman in rural Kentucky involves mature themes that are best for adults and older teens. Along with plenty of gunplay, including death by gunfire, the main character straddles a moral line between protecting people's civil rights and punishing bad guys. A primary narrative involves a gang of white supremacists. There's plenty of unbleeped swearing -- including racially charged language -- and a good deal of drinking.
Some seasons are mostly flirting and suggestive comments while other seasons include some sex scenes between adults.
Plenty of gunfire. The main character is a lawman who sometimes seeks reasons to draw, and use, his sidearm. Several people get shot ¿ some are wounded, others are killed, and most of the attacks are shown. The villains sometimes use heavy weapons, such as a rocket launcher.
Plenty of swearing, including lots of unbleeped uses of "s--t" and its variations, such as "horses--t," "s--tstorms," and more. The villains are racist white supremacists who often use highly inflammatory terms.
The series takes place in the present, but plays like an old Western, with a strong-silent lawman enforcing frontier justice with his trusty handgun. While Raylan certainly makes it clear that crime, and bad manners, will not be tolerated, he also seems like an anachronism in the modern day when due process is considered a critical part of the justice system.
A few mentions of well-known brands, such as RC Cola and Lysol.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Plenty of drinking. People socialize in bars, drink shots together at home, and sometimes get pretty drunk. Some smoking and discussion of drugs/drug dealing.
