Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this swords 'n' sorcery series follows the adventures of a young man (the titular Seeker) who discovers he's destined to become a hero. The bad guys are truly nasty, while the Seeker and his allies are obviously fighting for truth and justice. There's magic and monsters, wizards and fairies, and plenty of battles. The combat scenes are exciting and somewhat graphic, but there's little blood or gore despite the high casualty count. There's some sexual tension between the central characters, but not much in the way of action.

Sexual Content

No sex or nudity, though there's a fair amount of sexual tension between Richard and Kahlan. Some female characters wear revealing outfits.


Plenty of combat. People use swords, daggers, arrows, clubs, battle axes, and more, and most of the battles are fought to the death. The fight scenes can be exciting, with well-choreographed martial arts sequences, and though there's little gore, the show often features shots that make it clear when a swordsman has struck a mortal blow.

Social Behavior

As with many fantasy TV shows and movies, the main message here is that good will usually triumph over evil in the end, even if it takes a lot of time and pain for that to happen.
