Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this fantasy drama focuses on a fairly typical family -- overworked parents and busy teens who sometimes seem to have little time for each other -- who begin to develop superpowers. Yes, there's some crimefighting, but the main thrust of the show is how this incredible event can bring them all closer together. There's some mild swearing (including words like "whore" and "dumbass"), violence (including guns and shooting), and several references to sex -- notably from the teen daughter and her friends, who talk about who's a virgin and who isn't.
A married couple is shown naked in bed, relaxing and talking after presumably having sex. A teenage girl and her friends make numerous references to sex, especially about the fact that she's a virgin but some of her classmates are not.
Some fight scenes involving a super-strong man who doesn't know his own strength. Car doors and people are both thrown around. Some gunfights/shooting, and people do get wounded. A villain shoots someone at close range, drawing blood, but the scene isn't especially gory or intense.
Language includes "crap," "bitch," "whore," and "dumbass."
Raising a family is tough these days, with parents juggling demanding careers and kids pulled in many directions by schoolwork, extracurricular activities, the constant distractions of technology, and the ever-complicated minefield of adolescent social lives. Sometimes it seems like parents need superpowers to handle everything. When the Powells really do develop amazing abilities, they help a little. But learning to manage these new powers forces them to turn to each other for support -- and that helps much more.
