Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this post-apocalyptic science fiction drama doesn't skimp on the violence. In the premiere episode alone, one character is beat into a coma, from which she later dies, while another character threatens to shoot others at point-blank range. Besides these bursts of violence, the plotline advances too slowly to interest most younger viewers, and broods upon issues such as deception, inner conspiracies, and unknown dangers -- haunting topics for most children.
The series contains many violent incidents, often involving guns. Characters are shot in the chest and killed. A woman is beaten into a coma. Guns are brandished and used with intent to kill. A child is abducted at gunpoint (offscreen).
Even in the face of great adversity, the settlers try to band together and make a new life.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Some characters are shown drinking at a bar, but not to excess.
